The difference is if you just tell the child not to do something, they can't apply that logic anywhere else. If you tell them WHY, then they can apply that logic elsewhere, when you are not present. There's a lot more to it but i don't feel like typing My dad, who passed away when i was 9 (taught physics at a U) was the educator, while my step-dad in the US was more of the "because I said so, don't make me hit you" kind of person. He didn't even finish HS afaik, and was a general contractor for like 35 years.

it's a question of morality more than upper-class vs working-class in this regard. i know many working-class parents without that 'aspirational' tendencies that can raise their kids in ways providing rationale behind their actions, while more nouveau riche parents of upper-classes tend to ignore or fail to understand the importance in presenting behavioral logic.

Lower/working class parents typically default to the command system, basically the authoritarian "because I said so"

Individualized thinking and rationalizing demands is not done because that isn't how their life was lived as an office bitch/coal heaver/etc

I'm thinking his education level is bellow yours for starters

I forgot I already posted in this thread lol

The generalization holds true imo, when you live your whole life under someone's thumb you train your kids to obey and not to question, because it's for their own good in your understanding.... and vice versa.
