If you're from a large family(6 or more children per family), in elementary, junior high & high

school were you marginalized, deemed/treated as the other,outcast, or non-person because of your particular family status? As smaller families (1-3 children per family) are the norm, in many schools, children from large families are viewed as strange, even odd, as they do not fit the norm.They are seen by other children as less advantaged socioeconomically & socioculturally because of their particular family status. As a result, other children can relegate them to an inferior, even outsider status. If they do associate with other children,it is usually those from large families like them.

    THANK YOU, I have written enough hubs on the pathologies of the large family. It is now someone else's turn to do that!
