I think children need a lot of one-on-one time and support/affection. People with three or more children always have something lacking, or a lot lacking in their parenting. I think it’s selfish to have that many. Usually people who have a lot do it so they can grow up and support them or sometimes because they’re trying for the other sex so they’ll have six girls and still try for a boy.
I think it’s uncivilised to have so many children. If a child ends up a drug dealer and comes from a large family, I can understand why. Or if a girl ends up a prostitute or a girl that ends up in trouble, gets knocked up in her teens or seems to have issues in other ways - it’s always due to the upbringing. It always goes back to something that happened in the early years. It’s a pattern and it’s been repeated to death.
I’ve seen the dynamics of such families. They tend to be immensely toxic and ridden with child abuse and neglect. Especially ethnic minority families with parents who grew up overseas in developing countries (particularly if they were rural)
And it tends to be worse for White children who are living in poverty with uneducated parents who spend all their government aid on drugs, alcohol and cigarettes so they go to school with torn shoes and the same old uniform they’ve been wearing for three years that is too small for them and hasn’t been washed in a year.
Responsible people understand how much time, money, attention and effort it takes to raise even a single human being to adulthood and give them a balanced social, psychological, emotional, financial and physical upbringing so they tend to have only one or two when they are completely ready. That’s why responsible people also seem to delay parenthood a little bit.
There is no need to have so many children. Especially when the world population is on the rise.
I would like to introduce the two child police globally. This means that each person can only replace themself and then have no more children. Two children per family MAX.
