How to raise a child in the 1950's

I ran across this old book on how to raise a child in 1955. It's great for making one-of-a-kind "mail art", but it's also pretty funny (and scary) otherwise:




Lesson Learned: Birthdays are strange and frightening situations. Yeah, these girls look pretty scary to me too.







Lesson Learned: STAY OUT OF MY WOODSHOP GIRLS!






Lesson Learned: Who knows! Just watch out for the stick!






Lesson Learned: It's fun to wear gay costumes and sew like your mom.






Lesson Learned: Boys are allowed to hang out with girls without the fear of "catching" girly habits.
Wow. I feel so much better now, just knowing that.

What fun! I live in a 1955 ranch house--it's fun that your book came out the same year. What a different time! :-) I'm so glad I recently found your blog! :-) Jennifer
