    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 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!

    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!
