Form of Parenting in YN

Postby Zhouran » Wed Sep 13, 2017 6:32 am

What style of parenting is most common in your nation and how does it define your culture's family traditions?

Compared to the very-harsh authoritarian parenting-style found in Oriental child-rearing societies or the overly-relaxed indulgent/permissive parenting-style found in Western societies, Zhouranese parenting is based on the meritocratic Zhouranese-Style Administrative Parenting.

Administrative parenting, also referred to as supervised parenting, is a Zhouranese form of authoritative parenting. Influenced by the traditional Zhouranese child-centered practice that holds high expectations of maturity, self-reliance, responsibility and meritocracy, the term originated in early 1972. Administrative parenting is the result of high parental responsiveness and high parental demands.

Characterized by a child-centered approach, administrative parents can understand the feelings of their children and teach them how to rationally manage their feelings. While holding a high expectation of maturity, an administrative parent would generally forgive any possible shortcomings. Parents would often assist their children to utilize reasoning and work independently, and encourage children to be independent but still place limits on their actions.

Administrative parents generally try to be warm and nurturing toward their children and allow them to explore more freely, thus having the children make their own decisions based upon their own reasoning. As a result, children become independent and self-reliant.

An administrative parent would set clear standards for their children in a rational issue-oriented manner, monitor the limits that they set, and assist children in developing autonomy, mature age-appropriate independent behavior, autonomous self-will and disciplined conformity. Punishments for misbehavior are measured and consistent but not arbitrary or violent. In order to allow the child to see how their behavior is inappropriate and not to be repeated, the natural consequences of the child's actions are explored and discussed. When punishing a child, the parents will explain their motive for their punishment. Because children see their punishment as reasonable and fair, they will generally respond to administrative parenting punishment. A child would know why their punishment is legitimate since an administrative parent would make the reasons known. Therefore, children tend to be successful, well liked by those around them, generous and capable of self-determination.

Child Qualities

  • lively and happy disposition
  • self-confident about ability to master tasks
  • well developed emotion regulation
  • developed social skills

Thanks to this form of parenting, Zhouranese children experience exceptionally high academic achievements like with Oriental children, but at the same time experience higher happiness in life and lower chance of suicide and depression. Zhouranese-Style Administrative Parenting has significantly influenced the Zhouranese stereotype of efficiency, discipline, merit, self-reliance and honor.

Authoritarian parenting is all-pervasive in the DGES. Children have no say in decisions, and are completely dictated by their seniors. Note than there are no women in the DGES, so that is mainly why this style of parenting is omnipresent in our Empire.

A Sidh most often never knows or ever meets his biological parents. From the moment the first sparks of self awareness appear in the young Sidh brain while he's still at infancy stage in the progenitory vat, a Sidh is plugged into Dreamtime, a virtual reality designed to train and educate young Sidhae to full adult capacity.

It is difficult to describe what existence of a Sidh is like before activation, Dreamtime hardly being a life-like simulation childhood and adolescence. Sidhae describe Dreamtime as "non-linear", an endless collection of unrelated or only loosely related situations, each centered around a lesson, task or test, success being rewarded and failure punished. Some of these situations seem to last for weeks, others seem to take merely seconds. Sims are graded by maturity level, younger Sidhae being subject to briefer and simpler simulations, but at a more intense rate, moving on to fewer but more elaborate sims as they mature. Early simulations deal with very basic things like walking, talking and understanding emotion that infantrs and toddlers must master. That moves on to more advanced skills like reading, writing and fine motor control early on. Significant emphasis is paid to discipline and obedience, young Sidhae being instructed to obey their tutors (digital AI avatars) immediately and without question. Younglings are allowed to socialize with each other in various settings and scenarios to build their social skills, unacceptable behaviour being eliminated by pain conditioning.

It is fully possible for a young Sidh to die, oftentimes repeatedly, in these simulations, simulated death being inflicted for failing a task or otherwise doing something in the simulation that would reasonably result in death in the real world. The experience is very traumatic to the young mind, and the progenitors want to avoid creating the impression that death is reversible, so the young Sidhae in the sim are instructed to avoid potentially-deadly behaviour same as they would be in the real world.

Any task will be presented to the young Sidh repeatedly, often in alternating settings, until the youngster successfuly completes it. Failure is invariably punished painfully, especially in later stages when the young minds have developed conscience and a sense of guilt, this also allowing the implementation of collective punishments. The purpose is to firmly instill the young Sidhae with the idea that their actions and failures will invariably have consequences on others as well as themselves.

During their Dreamtime, young Sidhae are intentionally exposed to traumatic events in order to teach them to never back down, never quit, and never give up. A classical example that many Sidhae recall from their Dreamtime is being brutalized by a bigger and stronger bully over and over again, the situation being replayed endlessly until they would muster their courage and strength and defeat it. Some of these character-building events are intentionally so traumatic as to cause mental breakdowns and even insanity in some, these failed individuals being euthanized (their demise cast as permanent death in the sim) as unfit to become Sidhae.


This conditioning is largely what breeds the famed Sidh willpower. The average young Sidh fresh out of a progenitory vat already comes with a will to survive and keep going that would put many special forces soldiers to shame. Such is their strength of mind that it even confers the average Sidh with a considerable resistence to psionic attacks.

Diopolisian parenting is old-school authoritative, of the type once common throughout the west. Corporal punishment is common, and children are expected to do useful work. Gender roles are taught from a young age. However, children are expected to seek independence and maturity, and are encouraged to ask questions and make decisions.

Indulgent/permissive parenting is by far the main form of parenting in the CTM, however fertility rates are very low in the CTM with only 35% of the population having children

Most parents in Alizeria would be considered Permissive however this was always traditionally balanced out by the fact that the school system and church, which both had and have significant influence over Alizerian children, would be considered authoritarian.

As such, while a parent might turn a blind eye to a child's bad behaviour, once they get to school or sunday school, either headmaster or priest would probably administer a hell of a punishment - and most parents use the threat of telling the priest or teacher or their child's bad behaviour as a means of keeping them in line.

Children are segregated from birth by gender, with the girls being raised by their mothers and the boys being sent to the compounds. Generations of this have led to the mother giving up the son without protest, believing that he requires special care and that the child is better off with the state.

The girls are raised relatively normal lives that are comparable to RL Europe or North America, but without any boys. They have absolutely zero contact throughout their lives with the other gender, unless they are deemed suitable.

The boys are restricted to compounds just like the men, and are largely raised by the men within. They are taught by female teachers in a building connected to the main building, never seeing anything of the outside world except for the sky from the central courtyard that's present in all the compounds. The boys are indoctrinated to be submissive and passive, which helps with the stability of Fendur's unequal society.

(The bread and circuses model is used to keep male rebellions from breaking out)

Authoritative parenting is the best label for both, with it not being harsh or too strict, but not too soft either.

Children are very strong, mature and disciplined from youth, being taught to farm right when they learn to talk, or to fight as soon as they show strength. Weak and bratty children are seen as a form of distinct failure and disrespect.
