  • Never ask the same task to 2 people at the same time!
  • When you ask for something, don't do it yourself.
  • N’oubliez pas de remercier et d’encourager.
  • Start when the children are small.
  • The most thankless tasks must be carried out by everyone in turn according to their abilities.
  • Si personne n’est désigné pour faire une tâche, elle ne se fera pas, faute de responsable.
Don't tell people how to do, but what to do. They will surprise you with their creativity.

Our time is precious, so it is better to define the time to spend on each task.

20 % of actions produce 80% of results. Il est capital d’identifier ces 20% si on veut être efficace.
