Most of the time it is helpful to be an offspring that is weatlthy and powerful. A small percentage of the time it is drawback. Take for instance the recent dwi arrest of Alexandra Kerry. Her arrest would not have been news, but for the fact that she is the daughter of Senator John Kerry. The worst part of this is that she will always be remember as the daughter that was arrested for DWI despite the fact that she is presumed to be innocent.
This reminds me of the time that the Mayor of Houston, Bill White, had to deal with the same issue when his daughter was arrested in Houston, Texas for driving while intoxicated in 2006. Luckily, she was found not guilty by a jury the next year.
