THE WOMEN * Bi Kltb MUM* NKA •tail Writ* Wise Mother Devotes Summertime to Children "I set aside summer for thH children," says B mother ol four who isn't a bit dismayed by the fact that school is out and she'll have all four children at home during the summer months. While a lot of mothers moan and groan about how hectic the summer months arc. this mother has worked out a plan to make them fun. "I do my 'going' during Ihe wln- tei months," .she says. During the summer months I try to simplify life and make it fun for the children. 'After all. it's their varalidn, and I think it Is up to a mother to see that they enjoy it." This mother doesn't try to do any entertaining In the summer except family entertaining. In which the children arc included. If there are guests for a meal, its a picnic meal in the yard with the children. HOUSEHOLD CHORES MINIMIZED Housework is cut to an absolute minimum, so that mother and children can enjoy nil kinds of outings. "I could work from morning until nleht every day, if I just stuck to the house and Irieci to keep hi-use the way I do during the school year.' this mother says. ''But I'd probably go crazy, too, with the children quarreling because (hey are bored, tearing up the house ns soon ns I get it cleaned, and interrupting me every few minutes to ask, 'what can T do?' , "It's much simpler to get up early, do what absolutely has to be done and then .spend the rest of the day in the yard or at a park or at a swlrhming pool with the children. That way they're not bored, and I'm not cross and irritated." Perhaps she has the answer for mothers who find the summer months the hardest time of the year. They're bound to be hard if the mothers stick to the house as they do during the winter months and try to live in exactly the same way. Living at home as simply _„ you'l live at a summer cottage cuts down on the work and strain con siderabiy.
