SPOT ON answer, your analysis is correct. I am also an only child but have studied & observed large families. They are what you have stated, even much, much worse. Think of the Duggars, who are prototypes of every large family. Excellent answer
I simply could not watch the Duggars - they broke my heart from day one. Kids don't necessarily become delinquents - sometimes they just become generally 'lost', which is just as sad. Since I never know where kids are at - I always try to uplift them
That is large family life-poverty, squalor, crowding, neglect, parentified children, & scarcity It's no wonder the large family has such negative outcomes.The large family is totally dysfunctional, even aberrant & pathological. THAT IS THE TR

Not generalizing. Most of the people from large families are what I've described. Large families result in NEGATIVE OUTCOME, face it! I have studied the large family in college; had relatives from large families who are what I have described.
It is obvious that you have that experience. You have a bad family. Not all of us are so unfortunate. Sorry.
They were EXTENDED family.Everyone I know from large families ended up more impoverished, the least educated, pregnant as a teen, & delinquent. Those from small families (like me) ended up the most educated & successful w/no teen pregnancies.
Everyone you know is not every single large family. So, yeah, you're generalizing.
It is the AVERAGE large family. C'mon now, DON'T be in DENIAL. Kids from large families are mostly what I have described. Give me a kid from a large family & you'll find the abovementioned. My late mother, a nurse, can verify what I have stated.
I can give you a kid from a large family: me. And you won't find any of what you mentioned. But whatever. I am happy with my great large family. So I wont lose my time anymore. It's obvious you won't accept anything else other than your "truth".
Not only what I have mentioned, kids from large families receive assistance to keep them socioeconomically afloat. They have no medical care & go hungry. I donate clothes & food to large families. It isn't my truth but THE TRUTH-DON'T BE IN D

Large families put down those from small families& it has been found that small families are beneficial. Studies HAVE proven that large families mean poverty, being the least educated, poor nutrition.You've typical large family inverse "logic".

Great, analytical answer. Read the studies. I have also done hubs relating to this very topic. Large families are by nature dysfunctional, even pathological in scope. Normal, intelligent people DON'T have large families, they have SMALL families.
People in large families are IN DENIAL. They REFUSE to hear about negative outcomes re: their family size.They KNOCK small families which they do w/impunity but if large families are KNOCKED, they go into a rampage-they WON'T ACCEPT EVIDENCE!!!!
