Routine Assignments may include but not be limited to:
Family meal assignments
Family Home Evening (FHE) assignments for the next FHE can also made in the Family Council. This allows time for family members to prepare. The Executive Secretary can make these assignments with guidance from father and mother. A chart may be useful for large families. We have used the LDS Church provided FHE materials plus Church magazines for lesson topics-particularly the General Conference talks. (See Online resources)
We found charts of various type that the children develop can work very well and can be displayed so all know assignments for the week. We used rotating charts for many of these assignment for easy of management and to save time in Family Council. Tip: We put job descriptions for daily light cleaning and weekly deep room cleaning on the back of the door of the bedrooms so there was no question as to exceptions and tasks. Use special assignments and sub committee's for special family projects like: goal setting, expended family vacation, research for a new car or other major family project that require research outside the Family Council.
