This past week I found a few old Reader's Digests while thrift store shopping.
I like to read them and sort of get a feel what life was like back then.
Now remember, this is not an article telling about 1947.
It's an article written in 1947...which make it all the more real.
This first page below I didn't find so remarkable...but look on to the 2nd page below...
How do you like the first question below?
Women's "lot?" ...
Like being homemakers, wives and mothers was just thrust upon them?
Like it was just this awful terrible life?
I wonder if a lot of women really felt that way?
And the very last question makes me want to laugh.
Women were turning more responsibilities of raising their children
to the churches and schools...making the children overstimulated?
Sitting in a church service was too much for them?
Sorry but that generation knew nothing about overstimulated children.
They didn't even have TVs back in 1947.
