What are the 10 ways that children from small families are more articulate and have more advanced

vocabularies than children from large families? In small families(1-2 children per household),children grow up in an adult environment where their main interactors are parents. As a result of this,children learn adult language & mannerisms at an early age.In contrast, children who grew up in large families(6-more children per household) have little or no parental interaction. They mostly interact with other children. As a result of this, their language& mannerisms are more rudimentary. Dr. Zajonc confirmed that the larger the family, the LESS mature the intellectual environment is.

    Definitely, in my elementary school, the kids from small families were the smartest & on the honor roll. They were also more independent. The kids from large families were poor students, 60% had to attend summer school. They had a pack mentality.
