What are the 10 rationalizations that couples make for having large families, knowing full well that


their children will grow up in poverty & want, lacking for even the necessities such as proper food, clothing, medical, health & dental care in addition to being deprived of a normative childhood/adolescence & finally, having to forgo education in order to work early to support such parents?

    What you've stated is SO TRUE. Sadly so many DON'T think re:parenthood but act instinctively & unthinkingly. Again, THAT'S THE PROBLEM. If more people thought about family planning, children wouldn't grow up in LACK. Just mindless breeding!

    It's completely unthinking & illogical to have a large family. Kids in large families grow up in poverty & want w/o basic amenities. They DON'T have the things that other children have.They've hard chidhoods & hard lives due to parental i

    Not negative at all, but THE TRUTH. Kids in large families grow up impoverished/in want w/o basic amenities. They've NO childhood/adolescence like normal kids.They DON'T complete their education, being the less educated.

    Succinctly intelligent answer as usual, Old-Empresario esp.#s 2,3,4,and 8. Having large families is INDEED PSYCHOTIC. No intelligent, rational thinking person has a large family!

    Well, that's the problem, they really DON'T take into consideration the negative, even harmful ramifications of their profligate reproduction.Such parents DON'T use intelligent reasoning but iINSTINCTUALLY ACT!
