Word on the Street: Stay-at-home dads

According to a study conducted by the Pew Research Center, more and more men are becoming stay-at-home dads.



For a Bronx perspective on the findings, News 12 took to the streets to find out what residents had to say about them.



Some residents say that they agree with the findings, and that men should be able to do as they please, or that it is related to their personal situations. Others say that due to their jobs, staying at home is not an option.



The study goes on to say that not all fathers are choosing to stay home by choice. The majority of men say their current situation came about due to the difficulty they have been experiencing finding a job, or due to health problems.
