    No they can't. People of large families CAN'T give individualized time to each child. Some children will be neglected, cast aside, & waylaided while only a few will receive the needed love & attention. Small families are BEST for children.

    Parents only have so many hours in a day. When you have three times as many children, each child gets on average a third as much time.

    They have as much love and attention but subdivided among more kids; whether siblings make up for this is opinion.
