    What are the qualities that makes people from small families(1-2 kids) be very loving, nurturing, &

    attentive parents as opposed to people from large families(6 or more kids) who are more perfunctory, less attentive/nurturing, more distant & less involved parents?

    I think parents can demonstrate love for their children regardless of how many children they were blessed with. Fewer children are more simple to raise. More one on one time is spent with each child. Yet a family with many children can enjoy the richness of lessons taught through birth order. An older child can teach and aid with the younger ones, learning leadership along the way. And they may grow with life-long family companions. Both kinds of families are equally valuable, as every child is important. If a couple is unable to have children, they too can learn to be continent or even adopt a child in need. 

    "Children are a blessing and a gift from the Lord". (- Psalm 127:3)

      No they can't.  People of large families CAN'T give individualized time to each child. Some children will be neglected, cast aside, & waylaided while only a few will receive the needed love & attention.  Small families are BEST for children.

      VERY VERY FEW.  Most children from large families end up impoverished as their parents have.  Children from large families are THE LEAST educated & successful.  It is children from small families who are THE MOST successful. Nice try though!

    Love is the greatest feeling or an indescribable thing felt by someone to have a fulfilling happy family.

    This means beyond family feud and misunderstanding. Love answers those troubles at the end. Feel it. Embrace it.

    People from small families(1-2 children per family) make the most loving, attentive, and nurturing parents because they received such individualized care from their parents as children.  They see parenting as a spiritual, warm experience.  They put into parenthood what they received- time and individual care towards thei9r children.  They are also good at motivating their children to be the best people they can be and have the socioeconomic wherewithal to make it so.  They believe in being INVOLVED parents, not mere perfunctory parents.

    People from large families(6 or more children per family) are hands off parents.  At best, they are perfunctory parents.  They do not have the capability of being involved parents because their own parents were seldom, if involved, in their childhoods.  They are of the school that children raise/teach themselves and it is not the parents' jobs to teach/raise/guide their children.  They leave their children to their own devises as their own parents have done to them.  They somehow believe that their children learn by osmosis.  They seldom, if ever, have any type of communication, discussion, and/or other forms of parent-child time.  They let their children raise themselves.  Even if they have small families, their children are left on their own and must either swim or sink.

      Parents only have so many hours in a day. When you have three times as many children, each child gets on average a third as much time.
      They have as much love and attention but subdivided among more kids; whether siblings make up for this is opinion.

      WELL SAID, parents CAN'T give INDIVIDUAL TIME to a large number of children.  IT'S HUMANLY IMPOSSIBLE. Some are going to neglected & waylaided. Neglect is common in multichild families, believe it or not!
