    Make the entire household home

    What does "Make the entire household home" mean? If you built a hut and made it your home, ok, the hut is now your home. So I guess that "Make the entire household home" may refer to "Make all members of your family stay at home." Am I correct?

    Maybe. You're right, the phrase doesn't make sense. There might be a missing word, and the missing word might be stay.

    I can't fine the line in your attachment.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    In the attachment, it's 'keep', not 'make'. That makes sense.

    Right. It's a shorter way to say "Keep everyone in your household at home."
