Drugs and parties are a big part of it. I have seen wealthy areas where all the teens live in huge houses on acres of land. Drugs, sex and parties becomes a culture. Some can still excel while participating in all of that, but others become lazy, stay high all the time, and just stop caring. Since their mom and dad are wealthy, they ride it out. Some parents have so much love for them that they never put them out. Even to the point of giving them riches and expensive cars. They have the attitude, " it's still my kid". As long as I'm here, I will provide for them. They even leave them millions of dollars.
