Why do people from large families have a harsher, rougher, more cynical, and more street


persona? It is because they had a more hardscrabble life? Madonna and Mark Wahlberg, both from large families, totally exemplifies these traits!

    The average parent of large families often let their kids sink or swim! The concept of planning and providing for their kids emotionally and financially is a total anathema. They portend that their kids do the best that they can- if not, tough!

    Children from large families are often left more to their devices than children in small families. Parenting styles in large families are harsher and less nurturing, given the sheer number of children per family. They learn to sink or swim!
