The boss. The decision-maker. The head honcho.
Many dads fancy themselves as mini CEOs of the family, guiding everyone through life's choppy waters, making important decisions that impact everyone, and dealing with the overall well-being of the employees (um, I mean kids!). What this usually means is getting together with our co-CEO spouses and working hard to make top-level choices that have a lasting effect on the family unit. The decision to move, take a new job, start a business, etc. are all part of the parental CEO job responsibilities.
Interestingly, CEO was #7 for stay-at-home dads but #4 for working fathers.
