'There's something psychologically amiss, even aberrant about women who have very large families.They've some type of void in their lives so instead of channeling that void constructively through cultivating friends, a job/career, participating in cultural/intellectual activities, volunteering to help needy children,&/or other gainful pursuits, they endlessly have children to full the void. Such women have a narcissistic, infantile purview. They view children as collectibles-dolls. They don't have the foresight to realize that children are individuals who must have individualized parental time & attention in order to thrive emotionally, mentally, psychologically, & even psychically.They also must have socioeconomic opportunities to pursue their desires & dreams.
Typical mothers of very large families really don't care about the welfare of their children after giving birth.They're mothers in name only. In very large families, children raise themselves or each other. In such families, oldest/older daughters are parents to their siblings. Parentified children are commonplace in very large families. It's evident that children in very large families receive very inadequate parental care, time, & attention. As a matter of fact, there isn't such thing as normal parent-child interaction in very large families or in large families(6 to 8 children per family). Parents have very little or no interaction w/their children. All the children have to talk to are each other. That's why many of them are less developed academically & intellectually. Their only interaction are w/other siblings,seldom or never w/parents.
Children from very large families are mostly likely impoverished, poor, or very near poverty. This means they've poor, even inferior nutrition, poor medical/health care, &/or poor quality of clothing, mainly castoffs from donations.They also receive some type of socioeconomic assistance either through relatives, charitable donations, or from the government.There are very, very sustainable very large families.The majority of them receive some type of socioeconomic assistance.I'm digressing much.Mothers of very large families are selfish, even having some type of emotional & psychological issues. No intelligent woman wants to have a very large families. It isn't physical healthy for women to be continuously pregnant; it disrepairs the body, oldest/older children will be cast aside/neglected, & there will be financial burdens for all involved. Excellent comments, Austinstar & Peeples. Wish I could select both answers as BEST! You are women after my own heart!
