As we were raising our children we practiced democracy as the form of government in our house. I was very concerned to have the wise input of my amazing wife and as the children came along we both wanted to have them contribute to the process as well. Everyone has needs and wants and a good family takes all those into consideration as decisions are made and resources are allocated. It was common for us to vote on family matters. Each of the three children had one vote each. My wife (did I mention that she is amazing), had four votes and I cast my eight votes. The system worked very well and we were all able to fulfill our obligations in our respective God-given roles.
