|In the 1950's it was very
common to find that the woman of the house stayed at home to raise the
children. Because things cost a lot less money and since people
bought fewer things, there was often only a need for the father to work.
Women at home often baked for their families. This special box
of pastry and baking tools is a special memento and a reminder of how
things have really changed.
Today, most families have two working parents. Families with
only one parent also find the parent working.
