Two babies born on the same day Baby number one was a happy healthy baby that loved to learn. Baby number one went to school and learned and grew into a happy man. Baby number one had the support of his whole family and was loved and encoraged every step of his life. Baby number one did really good in school and went on to college. Baby number one got a good job and had a good marriage. All because of the love and support of his family. Baby number two was not loved from the minute the poor baby was brought home. No love and no support from the family. Baby number two grew up fast and was always in and out of jail and trouble. This baby did not have a chance in life. Dropped out of school...

Family life does make a huge difference but I also know people who overcame the way they were raised and went on to do great things and not let the way they grew up keep them up down.

@shaggin True enough! But not everyone has the determination, courage to make it through. Some sort of positive influence is required.

@Daljinder Even two siblings growing up in the same house and raised by the same parents can wind up very different. A lot of it is purely the person's personality.

@shaggin Again that is also true! If we are talking overall personality then parents, kid's own , the company they keep, their idols, entertainment etc... all play some role.

In general, things develop like this. But then, there are also fascinating exceptions. Well brought up children become criminals and neglected ones become balanced and even successful personalities.

Family life makes a huge difference in a child's life. Home is where the first foundation, support, education etc.. are imparted to a kid.
Science says parents of unsuccessful kids could have these 6 things in common.

Certainly the upbringing of a child has a whole lot to do with how they turn out.

It does with most children. Some are an exception to the rule.

@jstory07 That's true. Some rise well above whatever might have been expected of them.

and then there are #2s who don't get into trouble, aren't in and out of jail, have made the best out of the chances that we knew how to do (awkwardly so), and end up back in school....

Support from family on a constant basis does allow a child to become a successful adult. A shame so many do not have family that provide the care and love needed for success in life.

It's sometimes shameful how one child can be treated so differently from the other. The family should be about both.

A perfect example of how home life affects us all. Why have a baby if you don't want it.

I agree that support from the family is vital for each family. But a motivator can change the Baby number two and whole the scene.

Thankfully your beginning does not fix or determine your finish. Obstacles can be turned into stepping stones

Well, the first society in which we live after our birth, is the family. If we do not have the support of our parents, we obviously can not "go well" in the course of our lives. Then, when we grow up, begin the real trouble! Very bad!

Nothing replaces a stable and loving family in a child's development. Any child who has such a family has a head start in succeeding in his life. Even a single loving and supportive parent can keep a child on the right path if she succeeds in making her child feel secure, loved, and supported. Ben Carson proves that, as do many others who rose above the circumstances that seemed to be against them.

I think success in life is a mix of the first education received from the family and of personal inclinations, but it is indeed better to be born in a good family.

Most people make it with love and support. Environment plays a role and the peers too. However, there are others who make it despite the odds.
