     Potpourri 4240  "Raising Kids? A Case Example"
     For the fun of it, let's suppose we're at a Family and Child Care Conference.
     The audience consists of many parents and also about 100 Child Care Professionals,
     including Social Workers, Teachers, Psychologists, Nurses, Youth Workers,
     Child Psychiatrists, Police and other concerned counseling professionals.
     A "Keynote Speaker" starts the proceedings off as follows:
     "Good morning....My topic is 'Family Structure.'
      Our first Case for discussion involves a very complicated Family Structure.
     First of all, there are five children in this family...3 boys and 2 girls.
     Some are now adults. They range in age from 10 to 39.
     The father who sired them is and was "a workaholic."
     He was seldom home to help with the child rearing.
     But when he was home, his word was "Law" and he ruled the roost.
     Their mother? Well these offspring actually come from three different mothers.
     The oldest 3 are from the first mother. The others each had 1 child.
     The father, who is now 70, divorced his first two wives.
     His third wife, the mother of the 10 year old, is only 45,
     just 6 years older than his oldest son.
     Neither the father or the mothers have any history of alcohol or drug abuse.
     Here is a task for you:
     I want you to write down on a piece of paper your prediction regarding:
     1. Would that Family's Structure likely lead to 'Success' or 'Disaster' for the children?
     2. Would the kids be unruly as teenagers in school or as adults in the workplace?
     3. What chance do these kids have of growing up to be emotionally
         well-balanced adults?"

     Under "normal circumstances" most Child Care Professionals
     and experts on Family Living would believe that just the
     "Structure" of this family constellation would predict
     all sorts of "dysfunction" and "emotional problems" for those kids.
     It is not the ideal "Leave it to Beaver" or "Father Knows Best"
     Two Parent Family Structure that Dr. Benjamin Spock or other family experts
     would have ever suggested in counseling or books.
     The prognosis for well-being, solid emotional adjustment, and success would be poor.
     Of course, you know better.
     You probably realized right off the bat that this is the family of
     President Donald Trump
     The five Trump children are Donald Jr., Ivanka, Eric, Tiffany and Baron.
     His present wife is the First Lady Melania Trump.
     From what I've seen, and I know that "All that glitters is not gold,"
     these Trump heirs seem remarkably "well-adjusted" considering
     the amount of emotional bonding disruption that they must have grown
     up with in their "formative years."
     The vicious internet rumors about the youngest being autistic are totally false.
     They are all fairly bright, articulate, polished, confident, clear thinking and
     have "more class and poise" than their father.
     Work related, they all seem industrious and have their heads screwed on pretty straight.
     Donald Trump may have done a lot of wild and crazy things in his life,
     but he and certainly the 3 mothers seem to have achieved excellent
     results in raising those kids.
     Yeah, yeah, I know money solves a lot of problems and for sure those
     kids were raised with "silver spoons in their mouths."
     But whether you like or loathe Trump, "Let's give credit where credit is due."
     In spite of the unusual Family Structure, from what we know of them so far:
     "A good job of child raising is evident in how they've turned out!"
