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.
