NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - The stereotype of a handy-around-the-house dad is lost on millennials, according to a new study.
One-thousand millennial dads and 1,000 baby boomer dads took part in the OnePoll survey commissioned by Alarm.com.
It found that 46 percent of millennials didn't own a cordless drill and 49 percent didn't have a stepladder.
In comparison, 93 percent of baby boomer dads owned a hammer while only 32 percent of millennial kept one at home.
Millennial fathers also prefer to call for professional help to fix a clogged sink or assemble furniture.
Some of the reasons for a decline in handiness is the complexity of fixing devices as they become more high-tech.
Also, millennial dads said they'd rather spend time at home with their children than doing housework.
Nearly half of millennial fathers feel that they've done a better job than their own father at spending quality time with their children.
Meanwhile, baby boom fathers say that millennial fathers beat them at mastering tech-related tasks.
