Australia is steadily becoming a more progressive nation when it comes to traditional gender roles. Particularly when it comes to parenting and care giving within family units. But stay at home dads make up just 3% of the the Australian population, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
David Spark is a father in that minority; a stay-at-home dad of two young boys. He opens up about about the stigma attached to being a male care giver, and the communities he has reached out to after finding that most support networks for child-rearing and female-focussed.
