    Many children from large families become quite materialistic as adults as a result of NOT having anything as children. It is an overcompensation of sorts.One person I knew from a large family always talked about her new upper middle class lifestyle..

    You have proven what I have said & what others know.Kids from large & very large families have little or no parental training.They raise themselves & each other.They're the wild children so to speak,rough around the edges.Written hubs on

    It DOES NOT have benefits. In such families,children aren't valued as much.You're not individuals, but A GROUP.You aren't seen as special by your parents.Again, GROUP!Children in such families are A MASS,nothing more.They have issues, deep issues!

    It is normal for children of large and very large families to live on top of each other & in crowded environments. The concept of privacy & space is nonexistent in large families. They live in the open so to speak. How sad, very, very sad!
