    You make some huge assumptions in your questions. What evidence do you have that lower middle class parents do not have high academic and financial aspirations for their children?

      Typical  lower middle income parents exist in the security mode and nothing higher.They are concerned about lifestyles that provide security/stability. They see higher goals as an utter waste of time, imbuing their children in such a premise!

    2. Lower middle class parents use harsher forms of corrective discipline, including regular use of corporal punishment.  Solidly middle & upper middle class parents use more intellectual forms of correction & punishment.

    4. Lower middle class parents stress job security while solidly middle & upper middle class parents stress job mobility & advancement. Upper middle class parents particularly stress career fulfillment.
    5. Lower middle class parents believe in more practical, technical, & vocational forms of education.  They view college & other advanced forms of education to be an utter waste of time.  Solidly middle & particularly upper middle class parents stress the importance of a college & even more advanced forms of education as they see it necessary to get a decent job.
    6. Lower middle class parents teach their children that they can only achieve within certain limits.  They discourage their children from having lofty ambitions for they contend that such is impractical.  Their motto is to get a REAL job.  Solidly middle & upper middle class parents tell their children that they can go as far as their ambition, intelligence, & talent will take them.
    7.Lower middle class parents tell their children not to dream "too big" or have "too lofty" goals.  Solidly middle & upper middle class parents encourage, even expect their children to have high goals.  In fact, upper middle class parents contend that there is no such thing as too high goals.
    8. Lower middle class parents imbue their children with a fatalistic, negative, & passive mindset, mentality, & philosophy.  Solidly middle & upper middle class parents imbue their children with a pro-active & positive mindset, mentality & philosophy. 
    9. Lower middle class parents inculcate their children that they are powerless while solidly middle & upper middle class parents inculcate their children that they are......POWERFUL!
    10. Lower middle class parents teach their children that life is one, uphill, constant struggle while solidly middle & upper middle class parents teach their children that life is pretty much what one makes it for either better or worse!
