A Caregiver is the Dominant partner in a D/s relationship. Like a Master or Dom, a Caregiver is the top in their relationship and owns or cares for the submissive. Caregivers are in charge of their little. While they do not pretend to be their little’s parents, they will take on a parental role as the Dominant. They are there to protect, guide, nurture and love their little. While in some D/s relationships, the Dominate may order their submissive frivolously for their own pleasure, a Caregiver will order or set rules for their little based on nurturing goals and what is best for their little.

The Little Pet Play Community disagrees somewhat. The caregiver is not always the dominant. They may be switch or even submissive. A caregiver in a submissive role for example could be merely a caretaker for a young royal; they still look after the litle but they are techincally under the orders of the little.

It may be more common for the caregiver to be dominant but that doesn’t mean its the only way.

It is okay to be a subbmissive caregiver and it’s okay to be a dominant little.

There is no one right way to be involved in this community as long as its safe, crittically aware and consensual and your having fun! -Luna

Thank you Luna! We submissive caregivers do exist! ^ ^

I think it’s also important to note at least here on my blog for my followers that not all people with caregivers are littles/middles/ageplayers. My Master is none of those things and yet I still play the caregiving role of Big Sister for him.

It goes to show that anything you identify as in this community is valid, as long as like Luna said: it’s safe, critically aware and consensual!
