Suppose you're an attractive high-school girl and you're not only a member of a large family but your father is, in fact, one of the great pioneers of industrial effiency.  Then suppose he decides, for no apparent reason, to apply his unorthodox methods to you and to the rest of your big family.  The results are terribly embarassing, funny and -- it must be admitted -- extremely effective!  To Anne, however, the chief effect seems to be that of making them seem ridiculous to everyone else at school -- especially to the boys!

He is very proud, specifically of his family and his accomplishments, and is devoted to efficiency in his family and work. (Adult)

 

Mrs. Gilbreth - Quiet, gracious, and gentle, Mrs. Gilbreth supports most of her husband’s ideas, but also keeps his feet on the ground. She often has to compromise fights between him and the children. She frequently helps Mr. Gilbreth, and is very practical. (Adult)
