What are the factors which makes parents of smaller families(1-4 children per family more
concerned, vested, & caring in regards to their children's innate talents, educational, & career future as opposed to parents of large//very large families(6-more children per family) who are more lackadaisical, less involved, not vested, & totally unconcerned about their children's innate talents, educational & career future in other words, if they succeed, fine and if they do not, who cares?
That's a pretty generalized blanket statement, and I'm not sure what it's based on. There are all sorts of families, big and small, that do either one of these things.
I believe the 'large' families you are referring to, are those whose parents are, or were poorly educated, financially stressed, and were likely also raised in similar circumstances. It is difficult for many people to give, or 'provide' their children with what they never received themselves. Additionally, people tend to 'carry' their childhoods into adulthood.. that 'excess baggage' we so often hear about. Though the scenarios you describe may 'appear' to be divided between large and small families, one must recognize that most of our parenting 'factors' are learned, that is, developed via our own childhood experiences.
Parents of smaller families have less children per household so they have more emotional resources to become more vested, concerned, & interactive w/ their children. They are further able to spend MORE TIME w/ each child as a result of the small number of children. They also have more access to their children & vice versa. In smaller families, children normally receive the utmost care, time, & attention from their parents. Parents of small families have the resources to insure that their children have the best opportunities, particularly educationally & socioeconomically. There is more monies allotted to children in smaller families so they are able to pursue educational, cultural, & intellectual activities. Parents of smaller families are educated & successful themselves so they want the same for their children & guide them towards achieving their highest educational & career goals.
Parents of large/very large families have more children per household so they have less emotional resources which result in being less vested, concerned, & interactive w/ their children. It is humanly impossible for parents to devote the necessary time to a large number of children. In large/very large families, it is normal for the oldest/older children to be neglected, even waysided in favor of the younger/youngest children who need more parental time, care, & attention. In large/very large families, resources are very few to non-existent. There is very little monies allotted to each child. Poverty & struggle are de rigueur for large/very large families. Children must do the best they can. Parents of large/very large families have other concerns. It is unlikely for children of large/very large families to become educated & successful. Many must forgo their education in order to work to supplement family income. Thus the cycle of poverty & struggle continues yet again....& again.
