13. There's a great book on the subject

The Way We Never Were: American Families And The Nostalgia Trap
The Way We Never Were examines two centuries of American family life and shatters a series of myths and half-truths that burden modern families. Placing current family dilemmas in the context of far-reaching economic, political, and demographic changes, Coontz sheds new light on such contemporary concerns as parenting, privacy, love, the division of labor along gender lines, the black family, feminism, and sexual practice.

VivaDad gave me a copy when it first came out, and it was a bit of a shock (I hadn't found DU yet, I was so uninformed then)
