To some degree. My parents were very strict with us yet gave us a strict life. My three sisters and I all are very successful in life and have done well. Our brother is in and out of jail and constantly in trouble. My parents with my brother always made excuses and were not as strict with him. They bailed him out all the time and still do. My brother did not learn like we did there were consequences for actions and is paying for that now. My mom and dad on the surface looked like fabulous parents to us all. They failed my brother in allowing him to get away with everything. Abuse is bad and harms children and can cause them to be bad people later in life. Giving a child a sense of entitlement and never disciplining can do the same thing. Parents do shape their kids what the kid does as an adult with that is on them.
