Business Strategies for Managing the Home: Principles for

Effective Home Organization

Teaching Values through Discipline

Teaching values through discipline is perhaps the most challenging, and yet at the same time, the most rewarding of the parenting aspects. It is the most challenging because you are working with a child whose perception is changing constantly, you are traveling on a road where you have never been, you are at the whims of the child's personality, and you feel alone, against the forces of today's world.

Effective Use of Time and Resource Management

A visionary home administrator, one who believes in their children and sees their potential, not just their weaknesses, will help their children, to rise to the occasion, and to learn and to experience. This delegating of authority, will in itself; if done properly, bring about the saving of time, and the growth of family resources, that is needed for the children and the family to prosper.

The Fastest Way to Clean a Bathroom

The philosophy is one of flow. Have all the necessary cleaning materials in each workstation (bathroom). That way you have made the flow easier by having everything, you need at your disposal, and you do not have to go to the kitchen or another bathroom to retrieve items.

The whole point is to MINIMIZE the cleaning time required by beginning a FLOW of habits that reap great rewards. In the home organization this means prevention. As you prevent small messes from becoming large messes you minimize work, rework, and delays in having work completed in a timely fashion. Click on link above for specifics.
