Tips to Look

After Your Husband

(This is an extract from 1950’s Home Economics Book)

 

Have Dinner Ready

Plan ahead, even the night before, to have a hot delicious meal ready. This is a way of letting him know that you have been thinking about him and are concerned about his needs.

 

Prepare Yourself

Take 15 minutes to rest so you will be refreshed when he arrives. Touch up your make-up and put a ribbon in your hair. He has just been with a lot of work weary people. Be cheerful and interesting. His boring day may need a lift.

 

Clear Away The Clutter

Make one last trip though the main part of the house, gathering up school books, toys, paper, etc. Then run a dust cloth over the tables. Have your home be a haven of rest and order.

 

Prepare The Children

Take a few minutes to wash the children’s hands and faces (if they are small), comb their hair, and, if necessary, change their clothes.

 

Minimize All Noise

Eliminate all noise of washer, dryer, dishwasher, or vacuum. Encourage the children to be quiet and polite.

 

Some Don’ts

Don’t greet him with problems or complaints. Don’t complain if he’s late for dinner. Be happy to see him. Greet him with a warm smile.

 

Make Him Comfortable

Have him lean back in a comfortable chair or suggest he lie down in the bedroom. Have a favorite drink ready for him. Allow him to relax and unwind.

 

Listen To Him

You may have a dozen things to tell him, but the moment of his arrival is not the time. Let him talk first.

 

Make The Evening His

Never complain if he does not take you out to dinner or to other places of entertainment. Instead try to understand his world of strain and pressure, he needs to be home and relax.

 

The Goal

Try to make your home a place of peace and order where your husband can renew himself in body and spirit.
