Who is the the head of the household?

or

Who is the head of the family

the first one is more formal than the later.

my try:-)

Who is the head of the family

"the head of a family " is referenced from: The Homestead Act of 1862

It is

Who calls the shots around here.

It can be used in many different places, not limited in the family so it is not the best translation

Hi, justin2004

I think, at least, a full sentence should be provided here. Please read forum rules.

Hello Hly2008,

Thanks for your kind help. It is a good idea.  If It itself is the whole sentence. What can you do for it?

All the best.
