Why do children in large/very large families(6 or more children per family) have no
sense of self, low self-confidence, and/or little or no self-esteem?
I'm sorry but I grew up in a town where having 12 kids was the norm and those kids... I have no words, but most of them were up to something, doing increasingly crazy stunts, mostly for attention I think. In any event I don't think playing with flame throwers yels low self confidence! (And no, I am not saying they actually had flame throwers but some of the things they did they may as well have!!)
I think it has less to do with the size of the family, and more to do with how the children are raised. One of my classmates had 6 kids in her family, and they were all well-adjusted. I know of another case where a couple had only 2 kids, and they were dumped in foster care. The family was rife with abuse and mental illness.
Large families may be more prone to abuse and neglect because of ignorance, but some couples willingly choose to have lots of kids, and plan responsibly for them. I live in Hawaii, where large families are common. Children are valued in Hawaii; as a result, though the kids may be more bratty, they're less prone to gang violence.

Do you believe that poorer and/or less educated people have more children whom they can't support?Do you know any ill effects to the child(ren) born to these families and society? If so, what are they?

(6 or more children per household) in the postmodern, 21st century United States, being fully cognizant of the fact that they will be subjecting their children to an extremely rudimentary and primitive socioeconomic living standard, even socioeconomic penury and poverty? Countless studies...

Why is it irresponsible, immoral, unintelligent, even illogical to have large/very largefamilies( 6 children or more per family), especially in this postmodern day and age when advanced contraceptive technologies are very accessible and available?
