I think that todays women do fit the roles of mother and wife of the future of today. Men say that they don't make women like they used to, but then again they don't make men like they used too, either.
In my view, "being busy" does not serve as an excuse for why women have moved away from their traditional roles as mothers. Many of our mothers, grandmothers, and great grandmothers were "busy" as well and had societal issues to deal with that were much more worrisome than the issues with which women must grapple today. What's partly responsible for our moving away from traditional lifestyles is our nation's addiction to convenience. It's more convenient to get a bucket of chicken than it is to prepare a healthy meal made with love, but preparing food says to your family that you're worth my time, effort, and patience.
Anyway, I'm concerned about the health of my nieces and nephews. If they don't adopt better eating habits, they will be overweight like many of the children that I'm seeing in the classroom.
