Since the Father's role is to preside, I would suggest making him the head of the household. I would also suggest checking with the bishop/branch president to see if he has any inspiration on how best to proceed.
There's a clerk support page that explains more about households and heads of households:
For Church record-keeping purposes, a household is a grouping of membership records for individual Church members living at the same address [...]
The head of household is the person to whom all other household membership records are tied. Usually, the member husband or father is the head of household. In certain cases the head of household may also be another member parent, a single adult member, or a member child whose parents are not members. [...]
[H]ousehold decisions should be made by the bishop in consultation with the family members involved.
