What makes girls from large families (6-more children per household) highly susceptible to teen


pregnancy? Is it the lack of parental affection, attention, & love which causes them to be highly receptive to the first person who shows them any type of love, oftentimes w/disastrous, even negative results? What are the ways that the large family environment encourage, even welcome teen pregnancy?

    Again, Tamara you're right. The large family environment encourages teen pregnancy as the broodmother is always pregnant so the daughters know no better & they follow the familial pattern. Also, EARLY marriages are pushed in large families.
