But really.... don't you think that mothers have always been charged with the task of raising up the children in the way that they should go, and caring for the family, however we term that, now. Gen-Yers want more flex-time in their work schedules so that they can focus on their personal lives. Used to be that the sun and the seasons ruled our lives, the timings, and the ebb and flow. With air conditioning, no longer.
How long has your family been urban, not rural? How long has your family been "off the farm"? My husband and I find that to be a major difference in our lives; I'm one generation ahead of him. The biggest cash crop seems to be, for the farms I pass in Texas and Oklahoma, cell phone towers. That, or wind farming.
I bet we all start gardening more. I've enjoyed my herb gardens that I've had everywhere except the terraces in NYC. But our own personal gardening might be trending more towards family farming with eatables?
