    What YOU have succinctly stated is so true. Parents cannot be possibly involved in large families. Oldest children are THE ONES raising younger ones. Of course, OLDEST CHILDREN don't do well in school, THEY HAVE NO LIFE outside of raising siblings.

    I know. An overwhelming majority of large families fit the abovementioned description.One CAN distinguish children from large families from that of small families by such behavioral mechanisms.Children from small families are better behaved overall.

    Parents of large families are LESS INVOLVED. How could THEY be anything else. There are more children per household that they can effectively give attention to. OLDEST CHILDREN in such families are THE TRUE PARENTS.
