Transcription: 
When I became a stay-at-home dad, I found going forward that I didn't necessarily miss the social interaction of the environment because I was able to take my strengths from the working environment and apply them to the environment of being a stay-at-home parent. I would suggest that people do the same thing, too. If you worked at a production company and then you became a stay-at-home dad, volunteer to make the graduation video for the graduating class. If you are a musician, help out with the school band. If you are in a position of leadership at work, then volunteer to be a room parent or volunteer with the PTA or be on one of the many committees. Use whatever strengths that made you a star in the work environment, and apply them to being a stay-at-home dad.

Scott Lenz

Stay-at-Home Dad

Scott Lenz was born in Lewisberg, Pennsylvania. By the time he reached 9th grade, he had been to eight schools, which explains a lot about his social awkwardness. However, his wife Suzanne and two kids - Jaron, 13 and Georgia, 10 - went to less than five schools combined, so it all evens out.

He was the original rat mascot for Chuck E. Cheese, and since then has been a record store manager, music journalist, television documentarian and, most recently and importantly, a stay-at-home dad. His single greatest hope is that ABBA will one day reunite.
