Do you believe that parents of single children infantilize their children & EXTREMELY involved


their lives & parents of large families force their children to be ADULTS & are non-involved in their lives?There was an answer given which stated that parents of single children are overprotective, even micromanaging their children, depriving them of normal childhood & adolescent lives which is a false statement. There are more parents of large families who deprive their children, esp. oldest children of normal childhood & adolescent lives because the latter have to assume ADULT responsibilities in childhood such as working part-time to supplement income & parenting younger siblings.

    You're so right, SPOT ON on this. Parents of only children DO believe that their children are precious & treat them as such while parents of large families DON'T see their children as precious at all but somewhat herd-like.
