Jaylan Pina is a role model for all husbands and surely a dream for all wives. A popular blogger on Instagram, Jaylan and his partner Falynn Pina of Real Housewives of Atlanta have their own YouTube series called ‘The Pina Crew’. The couple who recently got engaged to marry is the perfect example of love and harmony. They live in Georgia along with Falynn’s three sons from past relationships.
Despite having a career in the IT field and being a full-time blogger, Jaylan has managed to take a break from his career while his mate is pregnant with their firstborn together. He has adopted the role of Stay-at-home Dad, running the household affairs and dispensing unsolicited advice. In this article, he shares 3 pro tips for all those amazing dads who are helping their wives in sharing life responsibilities and are struggling to adapt to the position of a stay-at-home Dad.
1. Turn blind to the stereotypes and shun them
Times have seen a shift as women have expanded their roles in life. While there is a large section of the community who believes raising children and leading the household affairs is a woman’s job, this unfair stigmatization has made it even harder for the stay-at-home Dads to fulfill their duties. But the best thing you can do is to turn blind to the toxic social constructs and do all you can to build a happy home.
2. Take care of yourself
This is a tip for anyone, man or woman who is staying home to take care of the family. It is surely a herculean task and nothing less than running a business or working at a full-time job. Taking care of yourself is extremely important as staying at home and managing the house could easily become an entire day and night job. So eat right, relax and do an activity that you love. You are human after all.
3. Stop seeking perfection
Perfection is an unattainable dream. It is an endless pursuit that is not fulfilling but drains you. So the best bet is to focus your energies on being the best dad and husband to your woman, and not how spotless the house is. Spend more energy on making meaningful connections rather than maintaining order because hell is sure to break loose sooner or later.
Jaylan is a complete family man who, despite not being the biological father of Falynn’s children, has proven to be an amazing dad, husband, and friend. Their YouTube series ‘The Pina Crew’ depicts his life as a stay-at-home Dad and the challenges he experiences daily.
