I know immediately it is another selection of newspaper clippings my mother has lovingly culled from her
local newspapers. Most of them zero in remarkably on
my somewhat wide-ranging interests—scientific breakthroughs, trends in publishing, weird and inexplicable
happenings in strange and exotic places, and so on.
others make me wonder what the heck she was thinking
about when she decided to send them. overall, I look
forward to these gifts for what they are: care packages.

My mother, like those profiled in t. foster Jones’ cover story, stayed home to raise
her son, definitely the expected behaviour in the early 1950s. I know she could have
pursued a career, had she chosen to. I know she could have taken the possibly even
more courageous course of becoming an at-home entrepreneur, had she chosen to. But
she, like all of us (except for the rare trailblazers), was a product of her times, and once
again it seems to have taken that rollicking baby boomer generation to shake up an age-old pattern: in this case, the one that dictates women stay home, men work.

Most of the women profiled in our story are younger than the baby boomers, so
I don’t want to slight the enterprise of Generation X, but the pattern of melding home
and career definitely was put into motion in the 1970s and ’80s.

so what is next? try imagining a world where stay-at-home dads bring as much
creativity and energy to the entrepreneurial arena as today’s mompreneurs do. I know

I’ll be getting plenty of mail from men who already are dadpreneurs, but, let’s face it,
they are not yet a major cultural force. Will they ever be? What would this mean for
our culture a generation or two down the road? I don’t know.

Maybe speculation on that will show up in the next package of clippings from
my mom. C
