How might wealthy parents who don’t work model a work ethic for their kids?

They need to read a lot and thus they will show them a model of hard work. Children will see that reading, studying, gaining knowledge is important and will reach for education.
In case if parents are not highly intellectual, they still can be active in some occupations. It doesn't have to be a regular job. At least the can provide a clean hose, a tasty cooked food, a clean close. They are able to demonstrate a love for exercise and so on. It is all needed to instill a love for activity, not to be lazy.

If parents don't currently work, the best they can do is convey to their children how hard they worked for their wealth (if they did work hard for it). Wealthy people who weren't born wealthy likely faced many hardships before they obtained their wealth. For example, a doctor or lawyer makes bank and they can retire early, but during their schooling and shortly afterwards, they would've been swimming in debt and the hardships of being inexperienced and new at their work. A non-working, wealthy parent who hasn't worked hard for their wealth, like someone who inherited their wealth or won the lottery, can't effectively model a work ethic for their children.
