Good, analytical answer. It's just mathematics that the MORE children one has, the LESS there is PER child in time & resources. Families of 6 & more children DON'T have the resources & attention. They are DISADVANTAGED in so many ways.
They're not wrong. Children from large families DON'T receive adequate parental attention & love. They are raised not to consider themselves & to have a concept of self is selfish. They are treated not as individuals by their parents but as a
I also disagree. I was #5 of 6 children, and we were raised with lots of love. All of us had normal or higher self-esteems (egos). Maybe you're generalizing about this, but this is not a cold hard fact.
I have met large families too and I think the lack of attention thing happens in every size households I think you not only are stereo typing but also prejudice against large families.
I've never seen the lack of attention in small families at all. It's in large families that children DON'T receive any parental attention.They raise each other-I've seen this. This isn't stereotyping nor prejudice but the truth.
So... basically this was a statement (without any proof), and not a question at all. By any chance, are you an atheist? Where did you get this idea about children of large families? I was raised in a group of 5; my wife, 9. We both respect ourselves.

I'm different. Of 10,000 families I counseled, 1/2 small families severely abused kids; we reported. Large families - half & half; 1/2 of families full of love, attention/educ/self-esteem bldg; 1/2 - negligent. Med. size - all over the map.
Children in large families don't receive that much love. Parents are too overwhelmed to devote needed time to their children. Children in large families RAISE themselves. They receive very little or no love that's why they so needy as adults.
