Wow! Really strongly stated opinion. How do you know this to be true? For my own part, I have known some really great parents who had kids that were determined to get into drugs, drop out of school and finance their bad habits by doing things that got them into trouble with the law. It is not necessarily a corollary that bad kids reflect bad parents. With bad dogs you might be able to get by with that statement. Kids have free will and some of them exercise it in detrimental ways.
