The Head of the Household is determined during the nightly scripts based on the following criteria:

  1. Male Parent
  2. Any Parent
  3. Male Adult
  4. Any Adult

If you wish to manually set the Head of Household as someone else, navigate to the household record and, on the General tab, check who you would like to be the head of the household, uncheck the other person who was previously marked as the head of the ousehold, and click Update.
