ABSTRACT
The article explains how working mothers can successfully delegate household chores to other family members. It cites the need to balance the level of challenge and types of tasks with the person's interests and skills. It also notes the importance of deciding what task to delay and specifying the benefits and challenges of doing a certain task. In addition, mothers must ask for progress reports, offer support, allow for setback, say thank you and recognize success.
