Management for Modern Families, 2nd Edition, 1954, Irma H. Gross and Elizabeth Walbert Crandall, Appleton-Century-Crofts, New York.

Home management consists of a series of decisions making up the process of using family resources to achieve family goals. The process consists of three more or less consecutive steps: planning; controlling the various elements of the plan while carrying it through, whether it is executed by oneself or by others; and evaluating results preparatory to future planning.
