Why are children in small families highly self-assured and are extremely comfortable in


interacting and relating to adults while children in large families do not have the capacity and cannot fully relate to adults, being more comfortable interacting and relating to children? Social psychologist R.B. Zajonc indicated that children from small families are more advanced, especially intellectually, because they interact with adults more as opposed to children in large families who seldom interact with adults and primarily with children.

    Children from small families seem so comfortable around adults. They can communicate so easily w/adults while children from large families are totally lost in this situation. They don't have good relationships w/ adults at all. I have seen this.

    Exactly peachy. SMALL FAMILIES=MORE LOVE, LESS COMPETITION. LARGE FAMILIES=LESS LOVE, MORE COMPETITION. Children in large families have to FIGHT for everything-parent,time,& resources. Hellish life if you ask me.
