Please read Ezekiel 18. According to the prophet, there is no such thing as collective guilt or generational curses. If the young generation doesn't continue in the sins of their forefathers, then God regards the young generation as innocent of those sins. God also doesn't blame a parent for the sins of the adult offspring. Some people are perfectly good parents, and their children still make bad choices later.
