>I can see that, good word, although I was talking about parenting (which seems different than milieu), and you addressed it well in your post.
I can't really see separating out parenting from extended family, from social circle and even reading and entertainment habits regarding rearing children. (Milieu is not "neighborhood" either.) They all go together, and even in less than desirable neighborhoods you'll find some families that keep apart from the bad or idle influences around them. And in some well to do neighborhoods drugs and other bad stuff creeps in.
