Why Rich Kids Are So Good at the Marshmallow Test - The Atlantic - Pocket
"Ultimately, the new study finds limited support for the idea that being able to delay gratification leads to better outcomes. Instead, it suggests that the capacity to hold out for a second marshmallow is shaped in large part by a child’s social and economic background—and, in turn, that that background, not the ability to delay gratification, is what’s behind kids’ long-term success."

Learning about ACES was such an "aha" moment in my career.

Edit 1: As my post seemed to gain some traction I just want to clarify that my above comment did not list all of the ACEs screened in the test. Please go here to take the test and read up more on ACES.

Edit 2: Fixed some of the ACEs that were worded weirdly as pointed out by u/fatalrip (sexual neglect)"

I hope to live up to my comments:

"The biggest thing I've noticed is that parents want to act like assholes and have their children turn out like angels.
It always comes from the top... everywhere. At home, in society, at work...
Be a leader and model the behavior you want to see. Everything else will take care of itself."
