The loneliness of the stay at home parent

I don’t have long, as baby is waking up, but I wanted to share the above video, as it highlights one of the biggest issues of being a stay at home parent. For me, the social isolation of new mums and dads is a really sad situation, and definitely a topic that’s not discussed enough. At times during her maternity leave my wife definitely felt like this. Now, it’s me who is the stay at home parent and, if I am honest, I feel the same way. My final point? Channel 4 did a great job, but, given this issue afflicts both sexes, really should have included at least one dad in the film.
