The Burke Family Case Study

Mary Burke is a lone parent with four children. Her   boys are   16 and 14 and her daughters   Kate and Louise are 12 and 4. Mary works as a health care worker. She is busy during the week and   is tired after working hard.  She comes back to the house to find   dirty    ware and cutlery, floors and kitchen tops were dirty.  Bedrooms are all messy and there is dust everywhere.

The garden is all overgrown with weeds and    grass and  the lawn mower is broken.

There is no dinner ready and   her    16-year olds ask her ‘what’s for dinner’.

Mary starts to cry   and gives out to the children for not helping in the house   as they are just playing video games, watching tv and   meeting their friends.

The   Burke family live in a three-bed semi in   Mallow.

You must make up a poster for the
Burke family to explain how to manage a home efficiently.
