Self-help is booming for stay-at-home dads.
Just Google "stay-at-home dads" and you'll see evidence that this is not a flash-in-the-pan, but a development that is very much here to stay.
Go to www.HomeDad.org.uk - a well established networking site whose motto is "Father's Day - everyday".
Or you could try www.stayathomedads.co.uk - which has its very own section dedicated to "dad's rants".
For the hardcore daddy the parenting website www.raisingkids.co.uk has its own babyblog complete with cute photos written by stay-at-home dad Aaron. Go to www.babyblog.co.uk/news.htm and prepare to have your preconceptions about men's emotional literacy blown away.
If you want a laugh try the 2007 novel The Diary of a Hapless Househusband by Sam Holden.
And (where else?) American dad Peter Baylies has written a self-help manual The Stay at Home Dad Handbook, with helpful hints on how to: "Avoid chaos when your wife comes home, answer the question 'what do you do all day', and, keep your cool when tantrums run high."
