I know a family that has 4 children. 3 of them are fine upstanding citizens. The other one is in jail for life. My aunt and uncle had 3 sons. All went to Catholic school and were Boy Scouts. All felons, 1 dead. My screwed-up parents have my sister and I and we're doing fine. My wife was allowed to run mostly free by her drunk parents. My wife is fine. Sometimes I don't think it matters much how you raise them.
