Hovcy Hlylheville In a recent article on family living a practicing psychiatrist talks about the "rubbing off of moods." That's a phrase every wile and mother ought to remember. For the happiness of an entire family can be affected by one member's low mood rubbing off on other members. Defore yon start to complain that the children have been little demon.? all day it might be wise to looi: back and see how you started the morning yourself, if you started out feeling rushed and pushed, wondering how in (he world you would ever bo able to get all the things done yon simply had to do, your mood probably nibbed off on the children. Ami if your husband conies home tireil and •grouchy from a hard day —watch out. Don't let his mood nib off on you, so that in a few minutes there are two grouchy parents; taking it out on each other or the children. Cheerful Atlilmtc Is Catching, Too instead, hang nn to the cheerful mood you were in before he came home and see if your better mood won't rub off on your husband. Remember this "rubbing off of moods." too. when you and your husband are going to have an evening out. if you want to be a gay, companionable, carefree evening, start out in that kind of mood, yourself, 'and there's a good chance it will be catching. If she keeps in mind the fact is colorful, informative—a complete pattern magazine. Fabric news, fashion tips, a wealth of smart frocks to sew for summer are all included.
