In what ways are large/very large families UNJUST, even INHUMAN to oldest/older children


in the family, oftentimes depriving them of a normal childhood/adolescence that oldest/older children in small & medium families have & enjoy?In large/very large families, parents often abdicate their parenting duties, forcing their oldest/older children parent younger siblings. Oldest/older children are THE REAL, even UNSUNG parent in large/very large familiesTHEY'RE the ones who also MUST be secondary breadwinners. Oldest/older children in large/very large families exemplify PARENTIFIED children.They're ADULTS & PARENTS from childhood while their "parents" are parents in name only.
