Stay-at-home Dad / by Justin Merriman

Ed & Julie Tozzi of Homestead hold their children, Talia, 2, and 8-month-old Giana at their home on Friday afternoon, January 27, 2012. Ed, 28, a laid-off teacher, stays at home while his wife, Julie, 30, goes to work. A disproportionate amount of men were laid off during the economy, creating a "mancession." As a result, some men stayed home to be primary caregiver to their children. Some men haven’t been able to rebound, other chose not to re-enter the work force.
