If you read Practical Suggestions for Mother and Housewife as a light-hearted book, you're sure to enjoy many of the ideas. However, if you are a moderate feminist, you will probably want to throw this across the room. Just remember this was a different time and the general mindset. There are ideas on Marriage, Mothering, Interior Décor, and Food Preparation.
This small but essential book for any woman trying to run a household. Granted, we don't have to trim the wicks on kerosene lamps very often anymore. Likewise, few houses have basements or use coal for heat. But the values this book teaches--healthy diets for children, proper discipline and good habits, choosing quality furniture, and much more--are always helpful. In addition, there are ideas on Marriage, Mothering, Interior Décor, and Food Preparation.
