When a child is seen behaving badly and is going off the course beyond the norm, the question/response that is generally aired is
"The child has been brought up very badly. The parents are to blame. What were they doing?"

However, when a child is shaping up nicely with no major problems or issues, the response almost always is 
"Such a nice, pleasant and good natured child". All compliments are for the child. And the poor parents who brought him/her to be what he/she is, is nowhere in the picture. In these instances,
How is it that it is very rare that one ever hears of 
"That kid is great. The parents have done a great job raising him/her" ?
