No child should have to struggle. I see nothing wrong with parents(if they can afford it) to provide their children w/opportunities and advantages. I believe that parents of large families are putting their children at a socioeconomic disadvantage.
gmwilliams, the problem with your assertion is that struggling creates massive opportunity for growth, and if you take away the vast majority of things that would normally cause a child to struggle you are going to raise adults who can't deal overall
So you're suggesting that children should grow up in socioeconomic poverty &want? You're suggesting that parents SHOULDN'T give their children opportunities? That's what parenting is all about at least for middle/upper middle/upper class parents.
That's not what I said. Reread my original answer where I said (paraphrased) family size was more correlation than causation, that it is the circumstances of large families and not the large family itself.
