Paul as Stay-at-Home Dad in Nob Hill Gazette

Author GreatDad Writers
Submitted 25-06-2007

The following extract is from an article on Stay-at-Home Dads in Nob Hill Gazette.

Pacific Heights
resident Paul Banas stepped into the role of full-time father two years ago. Prior to making the
decision, Paul was commuting two hours a day, and seeing his daughter and son for only a few minutes
each evening. Holding similar corporate positions that involved extensive travel, Paul & his
wife decided that he’d be the primary caregiver.

“When I first became an at-home dad, my son
was about six-months old, so caring for him was my main focus. As time went on, we realized there
was a need in the marketplace for information and resources to support the growing number of at-home
dads, so I started www.GreatDad.com as a way to do this. We’re so lucky that we live in the Bay Area
where dads get positive reinforcement from family, friends and the community.”

With the
routine they’ve set up, Paul and the kids explore SF — wandering through the Exploratorium, bowling
at the Presidio Bowling Center, and a family favorite — kite flying at Crissy Field. “Never missing
out on the key moments in my children’s lives is the number one joy!” says Paul. “I’m there for
every school music show, every theater event, every parent-teacher conference. There’s nothing like
the look on your child’s face when you show up at school or on a field trip and they can point and
say, ‘That’s my dad.’ ”
