    better adjusted than their counterparts in large families(6-more children per family)?

    I don't think there is any evidence for this so I can't think of ten.  Here, read about how there is very little difference.  Although, anecdotally, only children I know are weird.  Maybe I just deal with outliers. http://www.nytimes.com/books/98/06/14/r … child.html

    I find that two kids are easier to provide edequate food, education and needs

      Of COURSE, two children are easier to provide for & raise than six children.  In large families, some children will endure hell while others will endure bliss.

      In SOME large families, some will have it rough while others are pampered. Usually treatment is more equivalent, everyone is deprived/everyone is pampered. Family size rarely determines disparity of treatment among children therein.

      WRONG, Chris, in large families, there is NO such thing as equal treatment. C'mon now! Oldest/older children are cast aside or pressed into servitude while youngest/younger children are pampered, never having to assume any type of responsibility!

    Children in small families(1-2 children per household) are generally happier & more well-adjusted than their counterparts in large families(6-more children per household) in that the former receive more & individualized parental attention while their counterparts receive little or no parental attention.  In small families, parents raise children while in large families, children are left to their own devices.

    There is less socioeconomic stress in small families than there is in large families.  Children in small families have more than the rudiments, it is not unusual that they also have amenities whereas children in large families oftentimes have to do w/o even the basic rudiments.  It is not usual for children in large families to be malnourished & have little/no medical care.  Parents in small families do not have to worry about stretching monies whereas that is the primary worry of parents in large families.  Because of such stress, children in large families are oftentimes in quite precarious socioeconomic situations. 

    Children in small families are allowed, even encouraged to have a childhood/adolescence.  In small families, oldest children aren't pushed to grow up & raise younger siblings whereas in large families, oldest children have to forfeit their childhood/adolescence to be parents to younger siblings. They are pushed to grow up by assuming the brunt of the familial responsibilities. Oldest children in large families are parentified children. 

    Children in large families, as soon as they get older, are often cast aside & neglected while children in small families, even as they get older, always receive parental love & attention.  Many children in large families are attention starved/deprived, always being needy while children from small families, who receive attention, are content.

      That doesn't sound like most of the large families I've seen or read about. Usually a large group (inc. family) breeds more group cohesion and children are less likely to be cast aside.

      Wrong, in large families, oldest/older children are cast aside, left on their own in favor of younger/youngest children. In large families, parents do not really interact w/oldest/older children unless to press them into service.

    You can focus more on them and thier needs. As a result their health will be good. in point of view of a child, your love will not divide for them. And without the competition (as in big family normally we get to see).

      True, children in small families,for the most part, are well provided for.  Children in large families must work from childhood to get even the basic things Children in large families are actually the adults in the family, working, parenting others.
