Super Parents Raise Kids Who Become the 1%

In my five-year study of the habits of the rich and poor (http://richhabits.net/rich-habits-study-background-on-methodology/) one of the most profound discoveries I made was the vast difference in the habits the rich and the poor learned from their parents. Parents who raised children who became rich and successful in life taught them very specific success habits that they took with them into their adult lives. These unique daily habits provided a foundation of success that enabled their kids to excel and succeed in life.

Conversely, those who experienced poverty in their adult lives were unintentionally taught specific Poverty Habits by their parents which created a foundation of poverty that followed them into their adult lives, creating a generational cycle of poverty.

My research uncovered one overriding fact: Parents are responsible for poverty, the wealth gap and income inequality in America.
Not Wall Street, not the economy, not the 1%, not government policies, not your life’s circumstances – Parents!

In my book Rich Kids – How to Raise Our Children to be Happy and Successful in Life (http://richhabits.net/rich-habits-books/) I set out to list the hundreds of habits, behaviors, choices and thinking that the rich and the poor learned from their parents. My objective is simple: to end the cycle of generational poverty and enable kids to live the life they were intended to live. Let me share with you some of the habits, behaviors, choices and thinking prevalent in Super Parent households:

  • Super Parents make their kids read every day for self-education. Thirty minutes or more of self-education reading was the minimum.
  • Super Parents enroll their kids in mentoring groups such as: The Boys or Girls Club, Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts, Big Brother or Big Sister.
  • Super Parents withhold 50% or more of any money their children receive and put this money into savings.
  • Super Parents review their kids homework. They become their child’s Accountability Partner.
  • Super Parents limit the consumption of T.V., use of Internet and video game playtime to one hour or less every day.
  • Super Parents make their kids exercise aerobically for 30 minutes, four days a week.
  • Super Parents punish their kids for losing their temper.
  • Super Parents punish their kids for saying inappropriate things.
  • Super Parents attend every Parent-Teacher conference.
  • Super Parents instill in their children individual responsibility for their life circumstances. Excuses or blaming others for life’s circumstances were not allowed.
  • Super Parents instill in their kids a positive mental outlook. They embrace the American Dream, positivity and embolden their kids with a sense that life has unlimited opportunity, irrespective of current circumstances. Consequently, their kids are positive, optimistic and enthusiastic about life.
  • Super Parents teach their kids the importance of goal-setting, creating a vision for their life and pursing their dreams.
  • Super Parents teach their kids that they create their own good luck in life.
  • Super Parents continuously expose their kids to different activities in order to help them uncover hidden talents and passions.

Super Parents are loving, caring mentors to their children. They provide a foundation for success that gives their kids a head start in life. Consequently, their kids enter the adult world with confidence and an optimistic mindset, both of which are critical to success.

Thomas C. Corley About Thomas C. Corley

Tom Corley understands the difference between being rich and poor: at age nine, his family went from being multi-millionaires to broke in just one night, due to a catastrophic fire that destroyed his Dad's thriving business. For fourteen years they struggled with poverty. There were eleven in Tom's family, and they lived in constant fear of losing their home.

Driven by the desire to unlock the secrets to success and failure, Tom spent five years studying the daily activities of 233 rich people and 128 poor people. He discovered there was an immense difference between the habits of the rich and the poor. During his research he identified over 300 daily activities that separated the “haves” from the “have nots.” Tom decided to write a book to share what he learned. That book, Rich Habits: The Daily Success Habits of Wealthy Individuals (1st Edition), went on to become an Amazon Bestseller in the United States forty times over a three year period. To give you some perspective, in order to be a true Amazon Bestseller in the United States, where you actually receive a specific Bestseller designation from Amazon, you need to be in the top 100 of all books sold by Amazon in the United States in a given day. Rich Habits did that for nearly thirty straight days, rising as high as #7, eclipsing such Bestselling authors such as Stephen Covey, Robert Kiyosaki and J.K. Rowlings. Imagine that - an unknown, first-time, self-published author selling more books than J.K. Rowlings!

Tom now travels the world, sharing his Rich Habits and motivating audiences at industry conferences, corporate events, universities, multi-level marketing group events, and global sales organizations’ presentations and finance conferences. He has even spoken on the same stage with famous entrepreneurs and personal development experts, such as Sir Richard Branson, Robin Sharma, Dr. Daniel Amen, and many others.

Tom has shared his insights on various national and international network, cable, and Internet television programs such as CBS Evening News, NBC News, Yahoo Financially Fit, Money.com, India TV, News.com Australia, and a host of others. He has been interviewed on many prestigious nationally syndicated radio shows, including the Dave Ramsey Show, Marketplace Money, and WABC.

Tom has been featured in numerous print magazines—such as Money magazine, Inc. Magazine, SUCCESS Magazine, Entrepreneur magazine, Fast Company magazine, More magazine, Epoca Magazine (Brazil’s largest weekly) and Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine—and various online publications, including USA Today, CNN, MSN Money, SUCCESS.com, Inc.com, and the Huffington Post. Tom is a frequent contributor to Business Insider, Credit.com, Bankrate.com and a few other media outlets.

National publicity has garnered international media attention for Tom and his Rich Habits research spanning 23 countries. Broadcast media, online publications, and television throughout Asia, the South Pacific, Europe, the United Kingdom, and Central and South America have shared his powerful message.

In an effort to help parents, grandparents, teachers and adults become success mentors to the younger generation, Tom released his second book, Rich Kids: How to Raise Our Children to be Happy and Successful in Life in 2014. This book was the self-help category winner of the 2015 New York Book Festival and Runner-up in the prestigious 2015 Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards Contest. In 2016 Tom released his third book, Change Your Habits, Change Your Life. This book provides the latest science on habit change as well as more of Tom's unique research on the specific habits that helped transform 177 ordinary individuals into self-made millionaires.

Besides being an author, Tom is also a CPA, CFP, and hold a master’s degree in taxation. As president of Cerefice and Company, CPAs, Tom heads one of the premier financial firms in New Jersey.
