Modern Moms Not Measuring Up To Their Mothers
Traditional household skills like baking and sewing buttons are dying out because modern mothers are too busy to learn them.
Researchers found millions of mothers struggle with skills their own mothers would have carried out with ease. Knitting, baking cakes, making jam and altering clothes also made the list of tasks that many moms just don’t know how to do.
The study also found most modern mothers wished they had the skills their own mothers had but said they didn’t have the time or patience to learn them.
