Here are some small tips on how to take control of the situation by approaching your position like a Home Manager – Not Housewife!

2. Realise your importance.

Actively managing your home is one way to nurture your family and their environment. There will be positive reflections: a more harmonious household, a little more eagerness attending to household chores, more appreciation and gratitude.

3. Be Proactive. | Stay at Home
