I came across a link to a well reviewed parenting book recently about not raising spoiled children.

From the reviews, it looked like the author had done a good job sharing a path (well off) parents might take to ensure their kids grew up grounded and fiscally responsible.

It made me wonder – is there a possibility that kids in a household will grow up to be grounded and fiscally responsible if their parents are not?

My guess is no.

And, if there isn’t any such path, perhaps that ought to be the simple premise of such a book – culture, after all, flows from leadership. And, it doesn’t matter what we say – our kids will take cues from what we do.
