Have you got yourself a very busy family? And not just busy, we’re talking about a situation where every single member of the family, from the parents to the last kid, is constantly juggling family life with both work and social life. This makes it hard to properly fulfill their individual roles in the family household.
These could include taking out the trash, getting groceries from the market, refilling the fuel tanks and even paying the water and light bills. So how do you go about this issue? One idea is to distribute the works amongst each member of the family, but there’s also the need to monitor this division of labor.
Ever heard of the word, command central? Our friend Maca uses it as a way to keep track of all six members of her ever-working family. Contrary to what you might be thinking, this isn’t a military drill in Area 52 or some sci-fi method of keeping track of everybody with the aided use of a microchip.
It’s basically a cleverly thought-out to-do list pasted on a particular spot where everyone can see. This allows for each member to take note of what to do and when to do it. One good thing about this is that each member of the family has equal rights to it and can amend it wherever they find inconvenient.
This is a no-brainer for busy homes, since you can easily keep track of the day-to-day activities while maintaining the sense of responsibility in each family member. That way, you won’t be stuck with a hill of trash piled up in the kitchen.
The flexibility and equal access to the “command central” is an added bonus that prevents any form of cheating or complaints from any side of the family. This way, everyone can perform their own duty while going about their regular lives outside the home.
