How are children in small families(1-2 children per household) MORE RESPECTED, CHERISHED,


& TREATED WITH DIGNITY by their parents than children in large/very large families(6 & more children per household) who are oftentimes DISRESPECTED, DISCARDED, UNLOVED & TREATED VERY HARSHLY, even INHUMANELY by their parents? What are the effects of the aforementioned parental treatment on the children involved? In small family environments, children are treated w/love & dignity. In contrast, in large family environments, children are seen as.....merely numbers & are depersonalized, even seen as non-persons.

    Thank you for your reply. It is really not a horrible question come to think about it, it is a reasonable question.

    This is not necessarily so. What about Laura Ingalls Wilder of Little House on the Prairie fame? Her family had 4 kids. Or the Walton's, who had 7 kids? Compare them to Sybil, the woman with 16 personalities, who was an only child.
