“Hourly dad (or hired dad)” is a newly created term where a man is hired to take a child to and from school, play games and work out with the child. He is paid by the hour and doesn’t need to help the child with his/her homework.
Hourly dads are needed because many parents are too busy to take care of their children or children from single-parent families (of a single mother in particular) may need someone to spend time with them like a father.
Experts said that this idea was created with good intentions, and there is demand in the market. But parents are irreplaceable in a child’s life, you cannot randomly hire someone to act as his/her father.
