hi im in a family of 6 and i think is good to grow up in a big family because it teaches you how to shear and do things in groups and of course youve always got someone there what about you???

me!!!!!!!! i have a big family, and i mean, BIG... i have 12 siblings!! isnt it cool.? im not joking n i think this is because my parents bring the genetics of big family. my dad have 10 siblings n my mom have 11. see the pattern.? i really love my family. everytime i get far from them, i could not stand to see them. i always wanted to see everyone right in front of my face, n hear their voices, their laughter. it just great.

I am the youngest of 7 kids in my family. There are three boys and four girls. Us four girls were adopted into the family. Plus i have two other siblings from my biological parents side. I am glad i was raised in a big family because it has taught me how to be very independent and take care of myself. I have done it for years and then i met my husband and he gets so mad at me because i wont let him do things for me because i am to stubborn to let others help me. My dad has always said that i was so stubborn when i was growing up too.

I come from a family of six too. I have two younger sisters and a younger brother who is the youngest. At my hometown, there should be a boy in a family and this is the reason why there are so many children in my family. Growing up in a big family is fun, but it is also hard. I had to work when I was very young. I had to do the farm work; I had to take care of my sisters and brother; I had to study hard to set a good example for my sisters and brother; I had to be beaten first when there was something wrong... But I could get new clothes sometimes while my sisters had to wear what I had left; I could sometimes assign my sisters to work for me. :) And there were a lot of things to remember in a big family.

i know someone that has 9 kids and while i think it is good to grow up in a big family, i wouldnt want to be the parents. i also wonder if the kids get much one on one time with mom and dad?!
