In fact, there is a disadvantage to having things come too easily

It’s called not learning how to work hard for things. Those whose fortunes are gone before they hit adulthood are worse off then the lower middle class child who has to work to find a way to go to school or get a good job. They grow up believing that everything is owed to them, much as the generational poverty family does. The difference is that the rich child believes that the family owes it to them and the poor believes that the government owes it to them. Believe me, I interview these generational poor children and they really do believe that the government owes their family a way to get by. It’s really sad.
