Stay-At-Home Dads

  • October 12, 2012

It’s the latest trend hitting New York City the stay-at-home dads, men who’ve traded the briefcase for diaper duty. I went out in NYC to find some of these dads.

For this story, I went directly to the only stay-at-home dads group in New York City called NYC Dads Group. The group was co-founded by stay-at-home dad Lance Somerfeld, who has his own 4-year old son. “It began selfishly as a way to get my son other friends to play with,” Lance told me. The group is great about getting journalist in touch with other stay-at-home dads. Lance put in in touch with Marion Veeray, a gay stay-at-home dad with a 4-year old daughter. He and his partner allowed me a chance to speak with them about their life with their young daughter. This story was a great one to work on, especially as a radio piece. Enjoy!
