We all know that the stereotypical image of the family role  is that the mothers stay at home or work part time, take care of the children and do all the household, while the  role of the father is to work full time to provide the comfort and needs for his family, the father also do the house maintenance, the garden and he disciplines and nurtures the family . 

However, in the Modern world which we now live in, the roles which women plays in households now have changed radically.We can see more and more  women working full time and doing what the father used to do. On the other hand, the men are increasingly devoting more and more of their time to their children, nowadays men are just as likely to be seen cooking and cleaning as woman.

As we already know changes are a part of life

Consequently setting up the "perfectly family roles" and the stability shouldn't be the only measure of a family's success. Many families function quite well, despite frequent disruptions. In fact, one important measure of a family's success is its ability to adjust to change. Daily life is full of stresses that constantly demand accommodation from family members. When the family agrees to work together independently of their roles everything contributes for the best of their relationship. 
The great solution is the Indesit: Switched up family. 

Working together independently of their roles 

My daily routine as mum, wife, teacher, blogger and athletic.

Even With my routine changing everyday due the classes, clubs, schools I am the first one to wake up and the last one to go to bed.
I will describe Monday for you .
I wake up early in the morning at  5:30am. Then I go run in the road for 1 hour (10km), the time that I get home I prepare the packed lunch and for the entire family. In rush I go shower, have my breakfast, and I go to drop my little daughter to school then I go to work. I work in 3 different schools just on Monday. During the school breaks and lunch I work on the social pages and I reply emails. 
Finishing the work at 3:30 pm, I came back home, prepares the snacks, and go to take my older daughter to the diving. In the meantime I go shopping, come back home, prepare the dinner , give shower on my younger daughter . Meanwhile my husband get home, I prepare his food, they have lunch together and I go back to pick up my daughter from diving.
Getting home at 8:30 pm, I prepare her dinner, I switch with my husband to put the children on the bed.
When the house is quite, I have my tea and I start to work on my blog. Usually I go to bed at midnight.

My husband routine.

 He wakes up at 7:30am , have his breakfast, go to work. Getting home around 6:30pm , have food, we chat a little bit, he takes rest, then help me with the children on the bed .

Having a family is wonderful but it requires time, lover, care, understanding . 

When both parents are sharing the workload, supporting the family economically, as well as taking turns with the household chores and looking after the children the family life become softer and they are able to enjoy each other better.

Speaking  with my husband and with my daughters about the "switched up family", we realised that we done many switches along the years . In the past the roles were very defined, nowadays we do some switched up as to take the girls to the club, cleaning the car, helping with the garage and so on. 


 #DoItTogether it fabulous to encourage families to share their jobs creating a happy and co-operative family unit.

If you recognise that you too could benefit from switching up then why not give it a go in your home.

I have been so excited with the Indesit project that I participated in a survey and I invite you to take part on it here . 

 

 
What is a “Switched Up Family”? 

It's a family where everyone contributes to the household chores, switching roles and tasks whenever needed. We believe that working together, things work out best! And Indesit “life-proof” appliances are designed to be part of your team, everyday, in your daily routine.

You can watch Indesit’s Big Family Switch Up and participate in the global survey to see how Switched Up your family will give you a better family quality time with amazing and great positive feedback, as the family who took part in the serie. 



One of the Family Switch up participant Ron Johnson said: "The best thing to come out of it is more family time, more time to do things together. Because we were all mucking in together it meant it's not one person doing all the chores."
You will be able to see the following episodes here.
