De Goede Huisvader
“De Goede Huisvader” is a Dutch term for someone who takes good care of something or another. The name as used by Harm Jagerman is a nod from a stay-at-home dad to the rest of the world.
In 2014 I started the concept “The Good Housefather.” The “I” in this case is Harm Jagerman. Dutch photographer, lyricist, designer and website developer. I combine my work as an independent entrepreneur with the care of my two children.
It is not yet standard for the men in this world to choose the family, rather than a career or a combination of both. In most cases, it is women who (have to) choose to stay at home. Because this is not normal, there is a need to change this.
What do I do?
It’s not something that’s easy to answer. There is not just one answer to the question “What do I do?” Or if you – the reader – would ask, “What do you do?”
