What factors lead to the higher percentage of child abuse in medium large/large/very large families


(5 & more children per household) than there is in small/medium families(1-4 children per household)? What makes child abuse a normative, very common occurrence in medium large/large/very large families as opposed to small/medium families where parents use more constructive forms of discipline such as discussions & less harsher forms of punishments? There have been instances in child abuse in larger families e.g. the Jacksons & most recently, a family in Washington D.C. where parents were arrested for the abuse of their six children.
