    What are the TEN ways that children in small(1-2 children per household) and medium sized families

    (3-4 children per household) have more freedom to be themselves and in other aspects of their childhoods/adolescence than their counterparts in medium large(5 children per household), large (6-8 children per household) and very large families( more than 8 children per household)?

    That sounds like a question to which you already HAVE the answer and might be better off writing a hub.

    Large families contribute too greatly to our planet's overpopulation problem. Plus the children of these large families are not getting the kind of care children growing up in smaller families will have. There is an old 1920s USA song that states: The rich get richer and the poor have children. There's a lot of truth in this. Also you have idiots insisting on large families for religious reasons.

      A+ answer, Rod!  Couldn't have agreed with you more.  Large families are detrimental to all around esp. the children. They have little/no parental involvement They have to raise themselves/each other. One word describes them-DEPRIVED!

    Without casting aspersion on large families, I will say that in smaller ones the kids are more likely to have greater freedom of personal space, and will be less likely to be confronted by limitations on bathroom time, closet space, sleeping arrangements and in having to share things such as toys and clothing.

    I can see no one is going to answer your question properly by listing 10 ways, so I'll come to your rescue.
    1. kids in small families are more likely to get their own bedrooms and privacy
    2. kids in small families are more likely to take family vacations
    3. kids in small families are more likely to have their own cars as teens
    4. '' '' ...get to attend private high school/receive better educations
    5. '' ''...get their college paid for by parents
    6. '' ''...get more freedom as children (not have to help out as much with chores etc.)
    7. '' ''...more personal attention from parents
    8. '' '' ...not have to have a job as students
    9. " "...always get their own new clothes
    10. " "...receive the necessary medical treatment

      Well said, children from small families have freedom to have a fun-filled childhood/adolescence & are allowed to develop fully & freely.  They are also emotionally/psychologically healthier & DON'T have issues as children in larger famili

    All responses were excellent.  Children in small-medium sized families have more freedom to be a child & adolescent than their counterparts from larger families who aren't allowed the luxury of a normative childhood & adolescence.  Children in small-medium sized families are allowed to be children longer whereas children from larger families have to assume adult responsibilities during childhood e.g. raising siblings & working p/t & weekend jobs in order to supplement family income. 

    Children in small-medium sized families have the freedom to explore their childhood & adolescent environment.  They also have more opportunities available to them to enhance their childhood/adolescence.  They also are freer to be themselves than their counterparts in larger families.  If they are tired or need to get away, they CAN while children in larger families do not have the luxury to be themselves & CAN'T get away.  If they are tired, they must go on regardless.  There is NO such thing as private time in larger families-a child lives in the open so to speak.
