Crediting stay-at-home parents

I love the People page article "Working Mothers Who Stay Home," Aug. 18. About eight years ago I was on a jury panel and asked to describe my job. My answer - a household administrator, meaning I was a financial planner, a social secretary, a psychologist, a gourmet cook, a chauffeur, a wardrobe coordinator, a laundress, a bookkeeper, and a confidant. The word housewife just doesn't come near to describing the role. Thanks to the author for bringing this to light. Barbara Meyler, Encino, Calif.
