Transcendent Parenting

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on transcendent parenting practices and young people’s lives in the home setting in Singapore. It discusses how parents perceive their multifaceted roles as principal nurturers, disciplinarians, teachers, friends, counsellors, advocates, and even managers of their children to ensure that their children have the best material conditions and socioemotional support at home to help them thrive in their academic pursuits to attain future social mobility, security, and comfort. Such hefty parenting aspirations and duties are especially manifested and explicated through their use of mobile media, their mediation of the children’s technology use, and the varied ways in which mobile communication shapes their family practices, habits, and routines for the purpose of creating a healthy and child-friendly home media use environment.

Keywords:   transcendent parenting, ceaseless parenting, parenting responsibilities, parental mediation, media monitoring, home setting
