Happy children in your home

Date Created

Abstract

Advice to mothers was also present in more general parenting guides. Happy Children is a wide-ranging guide for parents on child-raising, cooking, amusements, first aid, gardening. Clear here is the struggle to get mothers’ attention. Chapters such as ‘Butter as an Aid to Good Health’, ‘Meat Values’ and ‘Ice Cream - a True Dairy Food’ give advice to mothers, while advertisements on each page suggest food, goods and services. Many of these are targeted at ill, or convalescing children.
