In this world, Nurturers spend post of their times taking care of the young. Therefore, most of the rules I'd follow would be positive ones, and easy to follow: be kind, be caring, be gentle, etc. These rules fall somewhere between parenting, babysitting, and working in a daycare. You'd nurture people.What you would not do is the challenging side of parenting; you would not push the children to go past their limits, for example, or to face difficult truths directly.The hardest rule to follow would be the one that seems completely inhumane: to kill infants that are not thriving, and to do so in a casual, business-like fashion.
