In a previous post, dated March 20, 2013, we explained the creation of a special series that ran in Hi and Lois during the 1960s. Here is an excerpt from that post:

The “Theory of the Month Club” began in 1966 and was inspired by the 1946 book, “Baby and Child Care,” by Dr. Benjamin Spock.  In each episode, the parents would present a well meaning solution to a family issue in an idealistic attempt to get the kids to cooperate.  The children, of course, would always find a way to outsmart these directives.

So far, it has been an unusually mild winter in the Northeast. Except for a few minor dustings, we have had no significant snowfall. Last winter, there were record accumulations, particularly in Boston.

School cancellations are cause for celebration. Snowmen, snowball fights sledding and skiing are favorite outdoor activities. For Chip, shoveling snow is a dreaded household chore, much like mowing the lawn in the summer and raking leaves in the fall.
