2. A/ P. S. of course.

The Roosevelts Kennedys and Rockefellers were all supremely wealthy families. They were raised with a sense of respect for their privilege, often redeeming their fathers. So ironic that George Romney, who came up the hard way and seemed a decent man, raised a over-privileged son with no empathy for others. But then. as both a parent and a teacher, I've seen this many times on a smaller, local scale. It pretty much comes down to the fact that you were raising kids with love, but with nonetheless understanding that somehow you can produce an alien child, allowing all the freedom given, and love to be rejected. You can handle this in all the right, or all the wrong ways. I'm blessed to have never had this happen, but know that it does happen to very caring parents, YES, the above famous families have produced many kids who have screwed up. Bound to Happen. The jerks among these families, however, have not played the role as viable world leader.
