It was too hard I guess …

To the secondary school

The past years weren’t easy. After a forced transfer to a school for children with special educational needs, it was sometimes hard.

Together with the series Life in Quarantine, it showed what we did during the first lockdown (light). The situation has changed and the new lockdown of December 2020 is more strict.

Who?

"De Goede Huisvader" is Dutch for "The Good Stay-at-home-dad." This project was started in 2014 by Harm Jagerman.

Why?

Being a stay-at-home-dad isn't considered to be normal for everyone. That's why I want to change this!

What?

Time for an introduction

Have you been here before? Or is this just the first time? Perhaps it’s time for an introduction.
