Article

To my father, I promise...

I know what a father and mother go through when their children use the family car. Because I'm a highway patrolman and a father, I know perhaps even more uneasiness and tension.

How bad are today's parents?

If you're like me, you're probably getting tired of being blamed for "What's wrong" with the American family. Parents do make a convenient scapegoat. But is all the criticism justified? Here's a true and false test to help you judge the fairness of the charges made against you:

New foods

Whole young turkeys, pheasants, and guinea hens come in a can. The birds are capped in vegetable oil, roasted on a revolving spit about 8 minutes, then rubbed with salt.

House with a one-pitch roof

Why are you beginning to see more and more one-pitch roofs on the new houses going up over the countryside? Is it just a passing style dreamed up by modernists to sell houses, just as dress designers change skirt lengths to sell clothes? Are these men merely trying for something bizarre and different?

A home with a warm heart

Your home should be like an old friend-- informal, intimate, sympathetic to your moods, a real comfort. At least that's the way Mr. and Mrs. Harry Mann look at it. And there are a lot of us who'll go along with that idea. The Manns' home strikes you as being as snug and cozy as a well-trimmed ship; the sort of place you'd like to be in when the rain is slashing at the windows, and a long evening by the fire lies before you.

One of the least-heralded effects the automobile has made in our way of life is a change in the way we enter our homes. Most of our trips start and stop at the garage these days, and most of the time we come in and go out by the back or side door, or even through the basement.

Should they help for LOVE or PAY?

Most parents agree on the importance of giving a child his own money to spend. Some believe in regular allowances.

Most children love dogs. But a child should be 4 or 5 years old before being trusted with a frolicking, healthy pup. Such animals are lively, do a lot of jumping, and can unwittingly injure a child in the face or on the arms and hands. The bigger the breed, the more danger.
