I might say that kids need to learn the value of hard work and long hours (that's generally what leads one to financial success in most modern, industrialized places).

This is not true and was never true. Hard work and long hours were always reserved for the ones on the lower end of society. Success is either determined by ingenious thoughts or (more likely) by money of your family.

That's irrelevant.  My point was the the criteria are too subjective, and can be cherry picked to give just about any result one wants to see.
