Oftentimes parental expectations in our formative years influence what we eventually become and achieve for good or ill. Many times children, regardless of their original socioeconomic and sociocultural background, are unsuccessful in life because of negative and/or low parental reinforcement and expectations whereas many children, regardless of original socioeconomic and sociocultural background, achieve GREAT heights because of positive and/or high parental reinforcement and expectations. What ONE'S parents think and believe about HIM/HER, HE/SHE eventually becomes.

Not accepting responsibility
Not praising any good work when it is known
Not speaking highly of those that do achieve
