Why are people from small families liberal, broadminded, & sophisticated in terms of culture & views
while people from large families are conservative, narrow-minded, insular/parochial, & backwards in terms of culture & views? Children from small families are exposed to cultural & intellectual activities where they meet a wide variety of children which broadens their perspectives.Children from large families AREN'T exposed to cultural & intellectual activities.They associate mainly w/siblings which cause them to be more backward, narrow-minded & insular in their perspectives as they don't friends like normal children do. Intelligent, analytical answers please.
I cannot say for sure if this is correct. The Kennedy's were a large family and considered extremely liberal. However my guess would be smaller families with two parents working in general have a higher probability of being more financially secure and have less stress from economic pressures.
Once one has their own needs met it's easier to take a broader view concerning societal issues. Rich people tend to donate more money to causes than struggling poor people. Oftentimes in larger families there's less to go around and therefore it encourages being conservative in most areas of their lives.
Oftentimes it's been stated that people with college degrees and the "well traveled" tend to be more liberal than others.
Typically, people from small families had parents who are highly educated & less religious. Such parents are also very liberal, supporting reproductive freedom & family planning. Because of their high level of education, they are cognizant of the fact that children need individualized parental time, love, & attention & that the more children in the household, the lower quality of parenting. Their high educational level opens them to exposing their children to cultural & intellectual activities which broadens the latter's perspective. Children from small families are widely exposed to cultural & intellectual activities which makes them advanced academically as well as socially, being exposed to a wide variety of people.
Conversely, people from large families had less educated & more religious parents. Such parents are also very traditional. They don't believe in reproductive freedom nor family planning, believe that both are somehow unnatural. Their lower educational level dictates that children are preordained by God. As a result of having a large number of children, poverty is commonplace which means there is little or no money for necessities, even that. Another aftereffect of poverty is feeling powerless & that the world is somehow against them. This fosters a us vs them philosophy. The average person from a large family is insular, never trusting outsiders & is content only associating w/their immediate family members. Since there is little money in the house, there is no exposure to intellectual nor cultural activities which would broaden a person's perspective on life. Because those in large families associate primarily w/each other, they oftentimes have very parochial outlooks on life.
