What causes some children of privileged backgrounds with every conceivable


opportunity, parental influence & encouragement to be ........QUITE UNSUCCESSFUL in life in terms of education, achievement, & career attainment? One would expect children from affluent backgrounds to attain immeasurable success in terms of education, achievement, & careers. It is sad that some of such children sorely miss that mark......even becoming abject failures.

    This. Exactly this - I know so many "privileged" kids like this, most of them end up alleviating their boredom with drugs and I suspect that's a factor too.
