    My DH used to always find it so incredibly offensive when he'd take the kids out and people would say things like "Oh that's nice, giving Mum the day off hey?"

    and he'd say- "actually no. I'm a parent too, this is what we do."

    So no- I would not feel uneasy with a male childcare worker. I wish there were more of them!

    I'm not appalled at the OP, I'm appalled at the people she was saying DID have a problem with the male carer.

    I always think its weird when dads say they're babysitting! Ummmm it's not babysitting when they're your own kids!!

    TBH i am a walking contradiction here.

    I applaud male childcare workers/teachers, i think it's great, but i hated the idea that my daughter would have a male childcare worker and actively chose centres where she'd have mostly females.
