Of course not. They got a chance and made it on their own. No silver spoons for them. And look what they contributed in their lifetimes.

Plenty of rich people simply outsource their parenting duties to hired help, which in itself can be damaging to a child (ie. making the child feel unwanted by its own parents, pawned off onto servants, etc.).
Agreed being wealthy doesn't imply great parenting abilities. And being poor doesn't imply your going to abuse/neglect your child.

Side note: I don't know if I've ever met someone who hasn't been somewhat damaged by their childhood.
