    How is family size influential regarding parental rearing  and discipline of children?

    I come from a family with 7 children. Speaking from experience, parenting spread through that many children is extremely difficult, especially if the parents both work for a living. There just aren't enough hours in the day to give each child the attention they deserve. I had a brother and a sister who were especially challenging, so more often than not, they got more attention in general than the rest of us did. I was told I was a very cooperative child, and due to this I really didn't get hardly as much attention as my brother, for example.

    I personally don't recommend large families unless the parents don't work for a living. Again, this is just my opinion.

      You are correct in your assessment of the situation.   Your answer is intelligent and realistic indeed.  At least, you are not in denial.   Children from large families do come to a quite negative outcome in all areas of life.
