A new survey of families with working wives indicates that superwoman，her husband and their children are generally happy with the arrangement.
A lot has been written recently about the tensions developed by women who try to manage home，husband，children and an outside job without short changing any of them.
Statistics from，and individual responses to，the survey by the Mark Clements Research firm for Family Circle magazine suggest the situation isn’t as bad as it has been pictured.
The magazine asked 15,000 reader，husbands as well as wives，if the wives working outside improved the marriage: 43.3 percent were full-time homemakers，although more than half the magazine’s readers are in that category.
The question of when to look for a job away from home was one of the most conclusive endings. Almost half of all the respondents，men and women of all ages，occupation and education，agreed that the best time was when the youngest child entered elementary school.
Some women wrote of the emotional strain of full-time mothering.Another said she chose outside work because“All my friends and neighbors that I cared to associate with worked.”
For many years，working wives were urged to Save their earnings so the family would not be accustomed to living beyond its means when children began arriving.That view is changing.

One positive consequence of our current national crisis may be at least a temporary shadow in Hollywood's culture of violence. Fearful of offending audiences in the wake of the terrorist attack, some moviemakers have postponed the release of film with terrorist themes. Television writers are delaying scripts with warlike and terrorist scenarios (剧本提纲).It is probably good thinking. My local video store tells me nobody is checking out "disaster" movies. Says the manager, "Currently, people want comedy. They want an escape from stories about violence and terrorism." Similarly, in the music business, there's a run on patriotic and inspirational tapes and CDs.
According to The New York Times, the self scrutiny among these czars (特权人物) of mass-entertainment taste is unprecedented in scale, sweeping aside hundreds of millions of dollars in projects that no longer seem appropriate. A reasonable concern is that this might be a short term phenomenon. Once life returns to something more normal, will Hollywood return to its bad old ways? The Times offers a glimmer of hope. The industry's titans (巨头),it suggests, are struggling with much more difficulties, long range questions of what the public will want once the initial shock from the terrorist attacks wears off. Many in the industry admit they do not know where the boundaries of taste and consumer tolerance now lie.
This is an opportunity for some of us to suggest to Hollywood where that boundary of consumer tolerance is, especially those of us who have not yet convinced Hollywood to cease its descent into ever lower of the dumbness of our young.
The nonprofit Parents Television Council, which monitors the quality of TV programming, says in its latest report that today's TV shows are more laced than ever with vulgarities, sexual immorality, crudities, violence, and foul language. The traditional family hour between 8p.m.and 9p.m., when the networks used to offer programs for the entire family, has disappeared. The problem looks like it will get worse.
That certainly looked to be the case before the Sept.11th assault. One pre attack New York Times story reported that TV producers were crusading (讨伐) for scripts that include every crude word imaginable. The struggles between net-work censors and producers, according to the report, were "growing more intense". Producers like Aaron Sorkin of "The West Wing" planned to keep pushing hard. He was quoted as saying,"There's absolutely no reason why we can't use the language of adulthood in programs that are about adults".
My guess is that a lot of adults don't use the language Mr. Sorkin wants to use, and don't enjoy having their children hear it. At this moment of crisis in our nation's history, thought has become more thoughtful, prayerful, and spiritual. It may be the time to tell the entertainment industry that we want not a temporary pause in the flow of tastelessness, but a long term clean-up.
