better adjusted than their counterparts in large families(6-more children per family)?
sort by best latest
True, children in small families,for the most part, are well provided for. Children in large families must work from childhood to get even the basic things Children in large families are actually the adults in the family, working, parenting others.
Of COURSE, two children are easier to provide for & raise than six children. In large families, some children will endure hell while others will endure bliss.
In SOME large families, some will have it rough while others are pampered. Usually treatment is more equivalent, everyone is deprived/everyone is pampered. Family size rarely determines disparity of treatment among children therein.
WRONG, Chris, in large families, there is NO such thing as equal treatment. C'mon now! Oldest/older children are cast aside or pressed into servitude while youngest/younger children are pampered, never having to assume any type of responsibility!
That doesn't sound like most of the large families I've seen or read about. Usually a large group (inc. family) breeds more group cohesion and children are less likely to be cast aside.
Wrong, in large families, oldest/older children are cast aside, left on their own in favor of younger/youngest children. In large families, parents do not really interact w/oldest/older children unless to press them into service.
