Summary: A breif description of where all the children of the weyr make their home - for pictures see the link.
Article: In the weyr there are a lot of dragonrider children that occur as the results of flights and dragonriders simply do not have the time, and their injury and mortality rate is high enough that they cannot effectively look after children in the same way that Holders do. As such, the weyrbrats, or children of the weyr actually tend to live in a more communal arrangement. Frequently they visit and are visited by their parents but more often they are mothered by the people who run the weyr creche and get a degree of stability and continuity from them.
