Inscription.  
"Parents have less time to listen to what kids have to say, and everybody in the family is going in a different way....Families don't have a chance to sit down and talk about what's going on....More and more you see wives going out and working, which I think is fine. And I think the husband should take on part of the responsibilities at home—doing the dishes, cooking a meal, and it wouldn't hurt the wife to mow the lawn. The roles aren't as rigid as they used to be, and I think it's a good thing."

Tim Garrison, "Something To Believe In," Listen, (Pacific Press Pub. Assoc., Mountanview, CA), 6/1975, p. 3.
