Will stay-at-dads become common in Japan?
State your opinion in 70 to 100 words.
Include examples and reasons to support your opinion.
(Hokkaido University's entrance exam in 2011)

I support the idea.

Some people say women should do housework and men should work.

They think women are poor at working and men are willing to work.

However, today more and more women are working as a white collar worker in Japan.

They are no less skillful than men.

In addition, I hear many of my male friends want to become a stay-at-dad.

In other words, many men are working against their will.

Therefore, I predict the number of fathers who stay home will increase in the future.
