disrespected, reviled, and even hated by their children? When I was growing up, attending elementary, high school and even college, many lower socioeconomic class children had very little or nothing good to say about their parents. They considered their parents to be losers, totally unworthy of their love and respect and oftentimes treated their parents accordingly.

Great, analytical answer. Poor parents are indeed uncaring, thoughtless, & quite selfish as far as their children are concerned. Children see this and return the favor to their parents. Why should they love such parents?
I am not rich but just solidly middle class. As a child/teen/young adult in school/college, I heard poor children speak derisively about their parents. They felt that their parents were losers and unworthy.
I knew many poor girls at my high school who indicated that their parents were totally subpar. They talked about their parents like dogs. They indicated to other classmates that they didn't care about them in the least.
I have seen such disrespect, even hatred first hand from a child until now. Many poor children view their parents as abject losers, quite unworthy of their respect. They call their parents everything but a child of God.
