- Do you often do jobs that require the cooperation of various people? How do they turn out? Do you know how to divide the tasks among the members of the team?
- When your children work together, do they cooperate effectively or do they compete with each other? What do you do when the latter happens?
- Do you all contribute to jobs at home, are their tasks assigned for everyone?
