DO you think that people who have children back to back (more than 2) miss out? Not the parents, but the kids? Are they able to reach their full potential because of the amount of time mom and dad have to spread out of a lot of kids?
Personal example: I used to live next door to a very sweet woman who had 4 (all 5 and under). Her daughter (3) seemed to suffer the most neglect. She is now 4 and still can not spell her name, know her numbers, or letters. Not because she is incapable, but because the mother said they just don't have the time to sit with her and teach her. She has also worn the same outfit for a week straight and allowed to eat mayo for dinner (yes, just mayo, in a cup, with a spoon). This is not the direct result of having alot of kids very quickly, but the mother said she didn't have a lot of time to spend with each one so they all suffer to some degree. What do you think? Do you have several close in age?
