Why is the incidence of parental neglect greater in large than in small families? Studies have
confirmed that parental involvement is little to none in the large family system. It is NOT unusual in large families for children to raise themselves or each other. Children in large families have scant interaction with their parents. Their primary interaction are with other siblings.They are also left on their own earlier.They teach themselves.Some even have to financially support themselves as their parents cannot adequately support a large number of children.In other words, children from large families have an extreme tenuous, hardscrabble life; however, they DEFEND this pathology!
This is because children from larger families get less attention from their parents than from smaller simply because the parents have less time for children. Parents who have many children usually have less resources available compare to families with fewer kids. In addition, younger kids get more attention compare to older.
Quite often those parents have to work harder to get enough money in order to provide basic needs.
This is so true. Parents of larger families, for the most part, do not raise their children. They delegate this duty to the oldest/older child. Children in large families either raise themselves and/or each other. The last statement is spot on.
