In many countries, more and more men are staying at home to look after their children when women work full-time.What are the reasons?Is it a positive or negative development?在很多国家，越来越多的男性在家全职照顾孩子，而女性出去工作。是什么原因呢?这是一个积极还是消极的发展呢?
In my view, the changes described above should be seen as progress. We should be happy to live in a society in which men and women have equal opportunities, and in which women are not put under pressure to sacrifice their careers. Equally, it seems only fair that men should be free to leave their jobs in order to assume their childcare responsibilities if this is what they wish to do. Couples should be left to make their own decisions about which parental role each partner takes, according to their particular circumstances and needs.
There are also both advantages and disadvantages of that trend. On the one hand, These changes in the family pattern mean that women could despise their marriage partner for having no money-earning capabilities. This means that the likelihood of arguments and father’s negligence of family responsibilities is inevitable, pushing their marriage to the verge of divorce. On the other hand, this trend could act as an incentive for the family bonding between the father and the children. In fact, playing sports or home education with the father could make children feel the sense of family sentiments and have a deeper understanding of their father’s personality.
There are several causes of why a lot of fathers could not leave their house to gain occupation. Firstly, with modern life, the larger of women might be extremely desired to pursue their career and very busy, therefore, helping of their husband is quite important. Secondly, the role of each person depends on their ability to divide available tasks for everyone while in the past, the breadwinners in families attach entirely with husband’s obligation. For example, my friend’s husband has landed housework and take care of children after a long time of unemployment, whereas, my friend might be completely busy in company to earn more money, so they decided that husband would be continued that role because it is difficult to land a job in that time. Finally, the househusband could be more common, rather than much more husbands would prefer spending time on their baby to pursue vocation.
