I think it means when you worry about money and work really hard, you don’t give time/love to your kids, then they will raise themselves and loose affection towards their parents!

What does this even mean?

They probably just want you to have kids and will tell you whatever they think will convince you to have them. Don’t have kids unless you are financially prepared and are willing to make huge sacrifices for them. Once you being life into this world, they come first.

I’ve gone to private schools all my life, so been around a lot of wealthy families. From my view (smallish sample size) there’s seems to be a correlation between wealth and issues with the kids/family (drug addiction, alcoholism, poor family relationships). I think the parents never being around may be a factor.
