sevendemigodsanswerthecall asked: do you have any tips on writing parents, who aren't total jerks or dead?
Yeah, I’ll see what I can find. As with everything, there are millions of different styles of parenting. There are the four classic styles of parenting in psychology. Good parents can be broadly defined, but I think someone who cares for their children, helps nurture interests, is supportive, that sort of thing. Parents aren’t perfect, and even when a parent-child relationship is strained or unpleasant, emotions and feelings are complicated. There are lots of good examples of parents in fiction that you can draw ideas from.
