In the United States, why do parents of large families place little or no value on their children's


academic, educational, &/or intellectual achievement & success, instead placing primary importance on social skills only? What makes parents of large families care about social skills more than they care about their children's education?

    EXACTLY, well said. I have done articles regarding this. Older siblings are children themselves& they aren't as advanced as parents. Large families are INDEED different from small families where parents are THE TEACHERS & INVOLVED.
