To psychologists, educators, & rational thinkers, why is individuality & a sense of ownership
regarding one's space & property disparaged, devalued, even denigrated, in large families(6 children & more per family)? Why are children in large families routinely informed that it is wrong to be an individual & to have one's own space & property which result in having to live out in the open so to speak? Children in large families do not have their own space nor things. Everything they have, they MUST share. Also they do not even have their own rooms. Any sense of individuality is STRONGLY DISCOURAGED in the large family environment. It is institutional living at its best.
Not just large families, but society as a whole is pushing back against the idea of personal/private property, in favor of a more socialistic approach. This is very troubling. This problem goes hand in hand with the "No Privacy" issue.
I was reading a book on the family 37 years ago which stated that large families are for socialism, even communism. The book further stated that they are more likely to be authoritarian. Yes, large families are against ownership, see it as selfish.
Large families can be authoritarian because it's easier. It's more difficult for parents of eight children to control their offspring than for parents of two. My biggest question for large families is this: Can you take good care your children?
Levi, parents DON'T raise their large brood. They enforce that task upon their OLDEST/OLDER children. OLDEST/OLDER children in large families are THE REAL parents. I have written hubs on the subject of large families.
True in a lot of cases, I'm sure. But generalizations are usually not helpful.
This ISN'T generalization at all. Parents of large families DON'T raise their children, they MAKE their OLDEST/OLDER children raise them. That is a normative large family lifestyle. That is where parentified kids come from.

The large family of 6 or more children is becoming outmoded. The large family usually have a diametrically different culture and milieu to that of the small family. Parental interaction is rare...
