TIP #70: Create a Family Roles and Responsibility List.

Are you aware of the roles and responsibilities you play in your direct family? How about your extended family? How about your in-laws?
This is an area that many people neglect, simply because seems obvious all the roles and responsibilities that you have regarding your family.
The interesting thing is that in family crisis is when you tend to discover some roles and some responsibilities that you didn’t know you had, not because you just got them, simply because you never stop and think for a little bit about it.
Spend a little bit and list all your family (yes, pets included) your parents, siblings, uncles and aunts. Do the same exercise with out in-laws.
After you have the list make sure there are not responsibilities that you have with each of people on this list. Make sure your role is clear.
Save the result of this, and revisit when need it. (or twice a year)
