About De Goede Huisvader
What is De Goede Huisvader?
The English translation of De Goede Huisvader is as follows:
‘The Good Family Father’
or ‘The Good Stay-at-home-dad.’
The person ‘behind’ De Goede Huisvader is me: Harm Jagerman.
In daily life I am a father of two children. I combine my family life with my business activities (photography, writing, designing and website development).
In 2014 I came up with the idea to start a website about myself. A website that would focus on a father who stays at home and combines his work (freelancer, self employed) with the care of two children. I started to write under the pen name De Goede Huisvader. I wanted to focus on those role patterns and the need for change. Combined with some background stories about myself, my family and everything I found important.
It started in 2013
My life changed in 2013. You might say that De Goede Huisvader started in 2013. There was no website at that time, but I was a stay-at-home-dad.
In this year I suffered from a major burn-out. I decided to quit my job and focus on my business activities and family life.
The fact that I became De Goede Huisvader from 2014 did not mean that I would never again be employed. I worked for a short time as a consultant and online marketer. In 2018 and 2019 I was involved in the start, development and implementation of a webshop. In 2019, I decided to focus more on my business activities.
