Are parents of large families less intrusive and less involved parents?
Large families make less time for parenting though parents do try to equal out their tasks and make sure their children have everything required parenting can be less controlled
I don't know. I think you can have uninvolved parents in any sized family, but I can't see how it's possible to give a lot of children all the one on one attention and support they deserve. I only have 2 children who are 9 years apart and it's hard. I have a relative with 8 children and there is no way she gives them all what they need. The older ones are not doing well in school and are always saddled down taking care of the middle ones so she can take care of the babies. I think it's a sad situation where those kids' potential is being wasted.
What YOU have succinctly stated is so true. Parents cannot be possibly involved in large families. Oldest children are THE ONES raising younger ones. Of course, OLDEST CHILDREN don't do well in school, THEY HAVE NO LIFE outside of raising siblings.
i think so. Parents with kids that they can't handle, they do not focus much on the behavior and well being of their kids. Just let them run wild , get dirty and mischieves.
I know. An overwhelming majority of large families fit the abovementioned description.One CAN distinguish children from large families from that of small families by such behavioral mechanisms.Children from small families are better behaved overall.
