Better Homes & Gardens June 1973 Magazine Article: What's happening to the American family?

Pages: 4, 27, 29

Article

What's happening to the American family?

Looking back at the distilled results of the Better Homes and Gardens survey of American family life, it is hard to point to a stark and simple set of revealed truths. The survey does not show family life in America today as an 8x10 portrait etched clearly in black and white; it is instead a lengthy mural daubed in the light hues of paradox, irony, and sometimes outright contradiction.

On-the-go grooming

When you plan a trip, deciding what grooming aids to take along can be a problem. Cover all possible needs with specialized products and you'll end up with a small drugstore in tow. Limit yourself to bare necessities and you'll waste time searching for the nearest store when someone gets a hangnail or a sunburn.

Buying a camper? Consider all the options

There's one colossal difference between buying a camping vehicle and buying a family car. Instead of the Big Four manufacturers, there are well over 300 makes of campers. And if this does not complicate matters enough, the standardization of optional equipment that is common with cars is scanty with campers.

Article

Are you making the most of fringe benefits?

Most people are so concerned with the size of their paychecks that they overlook the wide range of fringe benefits to which they may be entitled. These actually can add up to substantial amounts of money-- easily 12 to 13 percent of your pay, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, and that doesn't even count such things as social security and holiday pay.

Can you save by renting summer equipment?

Freshening your winter-worn house and turning that scraggly brown lawn to a lush summer green can be rewarding. It can also be very expensive. Luckily, there is a way you can cut the costs of spring cleaning, summer gardening, entertaining, even vacationing. The trick: rent, rather than buy, the equipment you need.

GO to a country fair

Can you remember when fair time came around, when the farmers' crops were laid by and all the folks brought their best of everything-- preserves, quilts, baskets, handwork, and food of all sorts-- and put it on display to buy and swap and sell? And high school bands played, not always in tune but with enthusiasm, while you strolled the grounds, watching the people and the craftsmen, smelling the barbecue, and stopping perhaps to buy a big piece of wet banana cake baked just for the occasion?

OLD-FASHIONED FUN FOR FAMILIES

What happened to all those unfriendly strangers? Those rootless neighbors wafted here and there with super-jet mobility? Those fragmented families we hear so much about? To prove there's another side to the coin, Better Homes and Gardens photographed two neighborhood parties where a group of families put on the festivities and had a rollicking good time. True to the tradition of the cornhusking bee, the strawberry festival, the razzmatazz turn-of-the-century town picnic, today's neighborhood get-togethers throw all age groups into the hopper. What emerges is a delightful blend of community high jinks, good eating, a few stomachaches-- and a lot of belly laughter!

How to remove summer stains

Summertime living isn't all that easy, not if you're responsible for the family laundry. You can expect ice cream and soft drink stains on the children's clothes, grass stains on Dad's slacks, jelly-making stains on your favorite apron, and lurid spots of catsup and mustard from the last picnic on your tablecloth.

THE SILENT SUMMERTIME KILLER

Summer is the season that tightens the ties between family and family dog. Unfortunately, summer also starts the seasonal cycle of the deadliest parasite threatening your dog-- the heartworm. Unlike the hookworms and roundworms that generally cause little more than discomfort, this slender parasite can kill your dog before you're even aware he's infected.
