The reason for a lower basicity of hydroxides of alkaline earth metals than alkali metals is : 

1. Alkali metals form ionic compounds.

2. The bond strength of oxygen is more for alkali metals.

3. The electropositivity of alkali metals is more than alkaline earth metals.

4. The electropositivity of alkali metals is less than alkaline earth metals.
