    I thought that might bite me. Probably more sole parent single mums than single dad's too. Though it's probably pretty close. I have a good feeling about 46% it sounds better?

    I think that the sample set for your statistical study would most likely consist of the 'traditional' mum and dad unit ... Because every other type of family unit is unfortunately open to the same sort of discrimination, stigma or social paranoia and would be excited by the prospect of a balanced care situation ...

    So your maths is likely perfect!

    Default Male relief childcare carer.

    I would think my child(ren) would be very lucky.
    Most of my primary school teachers were male including my father.

    DS had a male carer who was just brilliant with him. DS adored him & was heart broken when he left. It never crossed my mind to be concerned about it, just as I didn't think twice about the female carers being something to worry about.

    I love having guys in the center I work in. This children love them and they bring a whole new dimension and energy to the place. I taught half of the guys how to change nappies and hold babies and it was great (and greatly amusing) watching them go from nervous to confident in the role. They will make great parents when they have kids. It is very rare that the parents bat an eyelid about having males near the littlies and whent hey do, they soon get used to it. Everyone has to undergo the same checks and training.

    To answer the OP I would not have an issue with a male or female carer.

    I am with the PP's that think "good for him being in this line of work"
