Re: Who do you think is the Leader of a family?

well according to my own culture and tradition, after the father, the first male child is always the head. but if the first child is a female,she will be honored as a first child. but the final decisions is always that of the male that comes after the first daughter. That is after the father is dead.this is because after sometimes the girl will get married and will not be there after her marriage.

I think both woman and man are leaders. They are complementary. But women spend most of their time within households compared to men.

everyone has role in the family but in everything their must be one general leader who makes overall decision. In marriage, that should be a man. Alot of marriages broke down today as a result of equall right in marriage. There is no leadership where there is always unanimous decision as there are people who will may have different opinion. This the reason for a highest ranked to act as the breaker. Let us stopped using men who failed in their responsibility as standard even women has case to answer in many failed marriages

I suspect a very large and scary part of the world agrees with chijinco's view that men should always lead their families...
A marriage is TWO people, each person has his or her strengths and weakness'.
After a lot of give and take discussion we need to reach consensus to make a balanced decision. If we let the man make all the decisions, without input from the wife, it is probable that many decisions will be bad..
Better to let the balance of power in decision making to go back and forth between husband and wife...
It makes for smarter decisions and a happier home life....
At least that is what my Mother told me many years ago...smile

In our country the father is the head of the family while the mother is the heart of the family and the children have their own roles.Everyone is important in the family.

I think the role of the "leader" of a family is shared, or at least should be. As some of you were saying, the mother has a more emotional role, she has special bonds with the children and may be better at decision making. The father has a more physical role, more so along the lines of protecting his family and maybe taking financial roles and making financial decisions.

To me definitely the leader of a family must be mother but unfortunately in Turkey it is father! I hate that, i hate this idea! It must be MOTHER because of mother's toil to her family. Strictly all mothers strive for their family, it is undoubtedly. Mothers always give more labor beside fathers, i know that from my family.

Re: Who do you think is the Leader of a family?

Does a family necessarily need to have a single leader or head? When they first got married, my parents promised each other that if they didn't both agree on a decision, they wouldn't do it. In this way, they both equally have a say in decisions. This is how they still make any major decisions within our family. I know that this is probably not a usual arrangement, but it works for our family.

Family is a result of either marriage or a two side decision to make a unit.

For a successful family, a common leadership and decision making is necessary.

Family life is good and the father is the head. In his absence or incapability, the wife should act and "show us her style"

Family management has roots in the history and civilization. Perhaps reviewing history and civilizations helps us to get some answers.
