In 2012, a Georgetown University study was published indicating that only about 30 percent of those who grow up in an atheist household in the United States remain atheists as adults.[1]

A second generation atheist is one born and raised in an atheistic environment by parents who are both atheists. The term second generation atheist is used by atheists.[2]

In many secular countries intelligence is falling, while in many religious countries intelligence is increasing. See: Intelligence trends in religious countries and secular countries

Secular Europe's economic/societal decline and the Soviet Union's collapse offer excellent examples that atheistic households often produce progeny of lower quality than Christian households all other things remaining equal.

Furthermore, atheistic households have a greater propensity to domestic violence and other ill-behavior (see: Irreligion and domestic violence and Atheism and marriage and Moral failures of the atheist population).

Campus Crusade for Christ reported concerning Christian missionary families:[4]

Harry Conn, in Four Trojan Horses (pp. 17-18), makes reference to a study of the people listed in Who's Who of America. According to Conn, Who's Who in Who's Who showed that "it took 25,000 laboring families to produce one child that would be listed in Who's Who." That number dropped to 10,000 families of skilled craftsmen to produce one Who's Who. Among Baptist ministers the ratio was 6,000 in 1; Presbyterian ministers, 5,000 to 1; lawyers, 5,000 to 1; dentists, 2,500 to 1. Episcopal priests had the best... 1,200 to 1.

Oh. Except there was one more category. "For every seven Christian missionary families that sailed from the shores of the United States .... one of their children would be listed in Who's Who!"

...You want successful children? Perhaps the best you can do for them is take them to the mission field!.
