    What are the 7 factors causing children in large/very large families to be the LEAST educated/

    economically successful in comparison to children in small families who're the MOST educated/economically successful? In small families, there's more monies allocated per child for education. As a result,children in small families can afford to pursue college & more advanced levels of education.In large/very large families,there's very little money allocated per child.Children have to start working very early,forfeiting secondary education in order to supplement parental income.In such families,1 or 2 children attain a secondary education or better & the rest fall by the wayside educationally.

    Poverty is the #1 contributing factor, and the other risk factors can be found in the following link: http://www.nccp.org/?src=logo   (the national center for children in poverty)

      You're right. Kids from large families tend to be impoverished & w/that, there is LESS opportunities all around. They are low academic achievers, there is LESS to go around especially in terms of educational & intellectual things.

    I think they have financial help for parents that cannot afford it I think 2 or 3 kids would be just as hard to pay for education

      Wrong, kids from smaller families ARE more likely to pursue tertiary levels of education. Kids from large families are lucky if they graduate from high school. The ODDS are so against them.

      There are MORE successful people from small families than there are from large families, get real.  Children from large families are THE LEAST educated & LEAST SUCCESSFUL.

    Parents of large/very large families have a FAR different mindset & psychology than parents of small families in terms of their children.  Parents of large/very large families really DON'T care about their children's socioeconomic & educational futures.  They are merely concerned w/immediate gratification & their wants w/o being concerned about the ramifications of their actions upon their existing family structure.  They have a mindset of poverty, scarcity, & want.   

    Parents of large/very large families emphasize survival instead of thriving.  To them, struggle & poverty are normative, even acceptable behavior. Anything beyond that is seen as abnormal in their eyes.  They struggle for even the rudiments, going w/o most of the time.  They see the premise of going w/o as somehow strengthening.  They imbue that philosophy & belief into their children.  They also do not value achievement & success as it goes against their poverty mindset, consciousness, & psychology.  They feel that achievement & success aren't important in their lives.  They have a make do mentality.  In fact, one can say that parents of large/very large families are extremely anti-achievement & anti-success.  They feel that such things take away from & even destroy the family unit.  Their motto is to suffer together & no one is to succeed at the price of the family.  It is the crab in the barrel mentality. 

    Also parents of large/very large families don't believe in education & other intellectual pursuits.  They take a very dim view of any type of intellectual stimulation, preferring street smarts & acumen over academia. In large/very large family homes, there are seldom any books or any other type of intellectual paraphernalia in the home.  Children in large/very large families aren't stressed the importance of academic achievement so they are low academic achievers.  They also have to work from childhood to supplement family income & when they're old enough, many are forced to drop out of school by their parents to contribute en force to the family income thus the poverty cycle continues for yet another generation.

      I take it you know all the large families and parents of large families?  Is this what happens when one runs out and gets a few little degrees under one's belt?  Thank God it didn't happen to me!  You write judgmentally, not empathetically.

    I wouldn't say that ALL children in large families tend to be impoverished and under educated. It really depends upon socioeconomic level of the parents, and the motivation of their children.
