Lunchtime Trivia For Monday, March 11

We were asking about the kids Today with our Lunchtime Trivia Question: 40 odd years ago, 4 out of 10 kids had this in common, and Today it is 7 out of 10.  What is it?

 

With the changing times comes many changes in the home and that includes among the family. Our Answer was: Both parents working. Or Dual income families.

 

This month’s edition of Canadian Megatrends looks at the growing trend in the number of women joining the workforce. The number of Canadian families with at least one child aged under 16 at home and two employed parents almost doubled in the last 40 years―from 1.0 million families in 1976 to 1.9 million in 2015. Today, dual income families account for nearly 7 in 10 families with children, whereas in 1976, they accounted for 4 in 10.
