There will be rules and regulations when you have to administer certain things. All the concerned should follow them so that there will be good governance. But when it comes to family, we will have tradition and we learn our traditions for our elders and we will follow them.
Your office may change and your designation in the office may change. But you will have the same family throughout life and we can't compare the same with the office.
On the other hand the situation in our houses is totally different. The relations between the family members inside a house are based on affection emotions, and sentiments and there are no rigid rules to follow. If required one member can ask for some work to other member whether he is junior or senior does not matter much. A family survives on those affectionate relationships. There is nothing wrong in a family if the members respect each other and care for each other and do the the household related jobs in a united way.
Knowledge is power.
