As usual, the #1 job on the Dad Job List is Daycare Center Teacher.

After all, stay-at-home dads spend the bulk of their days planning out a curriculum and serving as the most important teacher their kids will ever have. Depending on the age of their kids, dads are either scheduling playdates, coordinating playground trips, working on letters and numbers or facilitating arts and crafts. Although they still get some unfortunate looks from those who still haven't adjusted to the rising number of involved dads in today's society, both stay-at-home and working dads are ingratiating themselves into the trenches of parenthood -- and doing a heckuva job.
