Parents can learn from the "best practices" of other families and can establish family systems that make the household run better and more efficiently and that give children a sense of security and consistency. On today's show, the Eyres talk about setting up a "family infrastructure" of family laws, family responsibilities, and family rituals and traditions that, like any infrastructure, take a while to build, but that then help everything to run more smoothly and effeciently. Using their book Mother, Father, and the Family that Worked (available for free at, Richard and Linda cover things like "daddy dates," "tutors and tutees," "responsibility pegboards," the "family bank," weekly "family awards," and more.
