In the 21st century, the more affluent socioeconomic classes(solidly middle, upper middle, & upper socioeconomic classes) will thrive educationally & socioeconomically because they possess the tools to succeed in the postmodern, computerized society. They have the means to teach their children the intellectual & socioeconomic skills which will give their children a head advantage to succeed in school. They also have networking means to give their children an edge in future job markets. More affluent parents are also the most educated which means that their children will be academically prepared when they begin school.
Poorer parents(lower, working & the lower middle socioeconomic classes) will be at an disadvantage in the 21st century. First of all, these parents are the least educated, even uneducated. They don't possess the intellectual skills to teach their children how to thrive in school & later in their careers. Poorer children are at a distinct disadvantage when starting skills because their parents due to their lack of education don't have the capability to teach them. Besides that, poorer parents don't value education & socioeconomic achievement like their more affluent counterparts. Affluent children have the tools to thrive in the 21st century while poorer children don't. The affluent & poor have different, even divergent views in their mindset, outlook, philosophy, & psychology. While affluent classes are proactive, poorer classes are fatalistic & passive. Affluent parents care about the present & future welfare of their children while poorer parents could care less about their children's welfare period. Affluent, more educated parents have small families because they believe in giving their children the best quality of life beyond the rudiments while poorer parents lean towards large, even very large families, oftentimes struggling for the basics, even receiving outside aid to keep them afloat. Yes, affluent & poorer parents have very different values. Agree/disagree? Why? Why not?

When will some Americans come to the realization that if they want to live the good life socioeconomically, they must work for it? Why do some people believe that society & others owe them an affluent life? When do we stop such socioeconomic leeches who are liabilities?
