Question What would you call...

.....the person who runs the house? I don't mean SAHM or WOHM, I'm looking for a title for the person who keeps the household business chugging whether they have another paying job or not.

And nothing cutesy with *mommy* or *mom* or anything particularly feminine. I'm looking for an identifying title that works for either gender.

Thoughts?

First thing that comes to mind is - Household Manager/Coordinator or Family Manager/Coordinator if you are dealing with things more like coordinating family actitivities, events, etc.

Thanks for responding! That title immediately came to mind BUT it carries with it a 50's type connotation that could allow one to infer we're talking about the moneymaker.

I'm looking for a corporate type term that works with today's families and only refers to the household CEO.

Does that make sense?

At my husband's unit, whenever I come up they tell him his Commander is here to see him. In a way they are right because I am Commander in Chief of the household.

This is my title on FB. It is a little silly, but maybe it will give you ideas: I am a teacher, guide, taxi, social advisor, spiritual leader, chef, maid, and personal trainer

I like this one too but this is the title they're trying to replace......

They're desperately trying to stay away from anything cutesy or particularly feminine - I like CHO too but I'm in the minority.

Household General Manager or Daily Project Manager.

I also like CHO. What's wrong with that?
