This is the first of
two episodes exploring what it's like to be a stay at home dad. On
this occasion, I speak to father of four Simon Kettlewell, stay at
home dad (SAHD). Simon is also the author of the superb SAHD
drama Eternity Leave.
Simon has been the main carer of his kids for over 20 years. We talk about what that was like for him, the challenges and dramas and whether he thinks it is easier for men to take on this role in the 21st century. We also talk at length about Eternity Leave, which is based on his experiences of looking after the kids.
