At-Home Fathers

This July 2011 photo released by Sara Brandfon shows father Mike Brandfon holding his daughters Abby, left, and Sophie in Chicago. The number of U.S. fathers home with their kids full time for a variety of reasons is down from a peak 2.2 million in 2010, the official end of the recession, to about 2 million in 2012, according to a report released Thursday, June 5, 2014, by the Pew Research Center. Brandfon, 48, of Chicago falls lost his job at a mid-size public relations company in December 2009 and was a stay at home dad. He joined a dads' group for park outings with the kids and the occasional night out for a beer. Once the girls were nearly 3 years old, he began looking for work again and landed a job last September. (AP Photo/Sara Brandfon)
