What makes people from large families (6 or more children per family) adopt a callous, harsh, even


ruthless attitude towards raising, disciplining, and "nurturing" their children? People from small famlies tend to be more loving, thoughtful, and concerned parents. They believe in working and sacrificing for their children. However, such is not the case for people from large families as parents. They don't believe in making the necessary sacrifices for their children. They believe that their children should be on their own from a very early age and make their own way without their assistance.

    Of course, parents have a greater chance of being good parents to a small families. The small family environment is not as financially, emotionally, & psychologically tenuous as the large family environment. Good answer, austinstar!

    Also, my parents were not overly harsh, critical, rude or ruthless.

    Though I can see what you are trying to say, I think that the quality of parents has nothing to do with how many children they have. The worst parents I've ever met had only 2 children who they neglected completely (and they were very undernourished)
