When I was growing up and attending school, children from large families were often disadvantaged.

These children were disadvantaged socioeconomically and intellectually. They usually were low academic achievers and were often behavioral problems in school. I and my more affuent classmates were nonplussed at this e.g. there was one girl from a large family of 20 who had to be assisted by outside donations and charities. There was another girl from a family of 8 who regularly shook down children for monies because her family could not provide for her. The opposite occurred with us children from small families-we are more affluent and high achievers. Explain why?
