In the 1950s, parenting methods were very different. Mothers were the primary caregivers while the fathers were considered to be the “breadwinners”. Because mothers were the primary caregivers, they often had more of an influence on the children. In this story, the mother’s advice to her daughter was focused on how to cook, clean, and fulfill other household chores. The advice was more than likely based off of how she was raised and what she had to do herself while being a stay at home mother.
Housewife In her article "Motherhood/Paradise Lost (Domestic Division)", Terry Martin Hekker, a housewife who had been married to John Hekker, her husband, discusses the drawbacks of housewife as an occupation for women by sharing with the public her experience as a housewife in two different situations and centuries.

She wistfully begins imagining a life as Mrs. Murchison where she “could be just like Ruth,” and do small jobs while her husband earns the majority of the income for the family. She asks George, “Do you believe that I could remain sane as a housewife?”, but this question is intended to be rhetorical. Bennie slowly returns to reality in her last line when she remembers that she’d be “wishing [she’d] pursued [her] dream,” and that she’d be looking into George’s “hungry eyes” day after day.

Before the passage of the 19th Amendment women could not serve on juries, women weren’t supposed to work, but they were supposed to stay home and cook and clean. Before the 19th Amendment women were only able to marry to ensure economic stability (Williamson).

The respect that women gained also helped them get better opportunities to higher education and stable job opportunities (Williamson).
People also believed that women are supposed to stay at home, take care of her kids, and to not interfere in the politics matters. On the article Women’s Movement it shows what people used to think about what women’s priorities were: “A woman’s traditional role is that of wife and mother, and most women’s lives centered around their households” (Gustafon 1). Men thought they were stronger than women because this is what their older generation taught them: a boy is a lot more powerful then a girl. Girls, since they were young, were not allowed to get a higher education or to work outside. Men thought of a women as someone that they had to take care of, and someone that cannot stay by
