    Do you contend that many poor people in America don't become socioeconomically successful

    because of the negative, often soul destroying, inculcations of their parents, relatives, &/or other adult authoritative figures?  Many poor people in America DON'T become socioeconomically successful because as children, they're inculcated to think small by their parents, relatives, & other adult figures in their immediate environment. They're inadvertently told that poor people DON'T achieve & to "stay in their place" by parents, relatives, even teachers. Those who DO achieve ignored such negative teachings & conditionings, believing that their beginnings DOESN'T preclude their success.

    Probably most poor people don't become economically successful , not however because of poor parental  "programming ",  we have to face the fact that intelligence plays the major part in the continuum of lifestyle . In America  , anyone has the chance to acquire success .  Entrepreneurial tendency comes from ALL classes .  Probably at no time in history have those in  poverty have more chance for the  poor to gain economic success .  AND , just how do you describe socioeconomic success ?  The garbage truck driver that's more than  content simply and happily making a  decent living .  or are you of the mentality that everyone that's rich  must be happier  than those in the lower income bracket ?

    What we are taught or not taught at home has lasting effects and a significant number of people will never change their mindset because that is what they see as the norm. It's not uncommon for people to avoid changing because doing so takes effort and a conscious acknowledgement that the family or friends' "norm" doesn't have to be theirs.
    Acknowledgement and change takes effort, a lot of it in some cases and there are real life stories of people being verbally and even physically abused by their so called family, friends and colleagues for even attempting to better themselves and likely outshine those around them who are content to be less than their true potential. Self confidence and the desire to try and not be afraid to fail is more valuable than many people understand.
    Not buying into the belief that where one started is where they will end up is very important, no matter where one began in life. This is true no matter what economic situation one grew up in. Nevertheless, parents need to be parents or not have any children at all. Too many do not respect this job that they choose and their lackluster or negligent efforts can color the lives of those they bring into the world. I am in agreement with you as usual.
