True, but it doesn't mean we shouldn't try.
I'm sure if we could measure this statistically then the good parents would have better odds of raising good kids, but there's always variables.
How do you even begin to quantify "goodness". I would seriously doubt any statistics on this subject.
True. I believe that it is a mixture of nature vs nurture. Raising good children also depends on that child's inner self, DNA, morals, thoughts, etc.
True. It doesn't matter how good or bad we were raised, we all must make our own choices in life. Good parents can have kids who rebel; bad parents can have kids who become great humanitarians. Parental teaching has an influence, but ultimately it’s up to the child on the direction he or she takes in life.
Very true. I have watched interviews with serial killers & other criminals who say that they had normal childhoods, with no abuse or anything by parents. Then there are people who everything going for them in terms of good background, & they turn around & kill their own parents in order to inherit the family assets. Sometimes a person just seems to be a "bad seed," & there's no known explanation.
Great observation! I've seen this one up close and personal. My Aunt is a sweet, hard working woman who scrubbed her kids, stuffed them into clean clothes and drug them to church every sunday, all their lives..and now they're worthless pieces of crap..every one of them.
Sad but true. Bad parents don't always raise bad kids as well.
True.. Because society have some share of raising the kids up.
This is quite often true, alas !
Something went wrong, somewhere. .. I still say it's the parenting.
FALSE!!! If your kid is evil its cause their parents are as evil as Satan himself......... I'm not serious I just had to go against the grain for a second.
That is very true. I had years of experience with that when I was a LEO.
some adopt evil babies
It does seem that good parents raise bad kids while bad parents raise good kids. <br />
Therefore, I say both true and false. <br />
Some good parents do raise bad kids but others do raise good kids too. <br />
The same thing goes with bad parents as well.
