I am successful today because I grew up eating well, always having a safe bed to sleep in, a quality education that was provided to me, and healthcare when I needed it. Due to these gifts I have a Master’s degree and my own business. My aim is to provide these same gifts to my children so they also can be successful. In the U.S. (which is the wealthiest country in the world) everyone should have these basics that are the ingredients for success. If a parent struggles, the child should still be able to have what they need to be successful.
