No as long as the child is guided it does not harm

Children sometimes from wealth families do not look at their future and do not attend school which harms their development

I suppose it would depend upon the definition of wealthy.

Ooh interesting.

Why do you think it would harm development? And in what way? Health, education? Surely being wealthy your parents would provide you with the best of everything as far as they could. This would not harm development…are we talking about more social aspects of development then? Then surely with wealth comes responsibility and the responsibility to teach your children that not everyone is as fortunate in some respects as you and to appreciate what you have and help those in need. I would like to point out too that money doesn’t necessarily make you happy, it helps but it is not always necessary for happiness or ’good’ development in any area of your life.

I don’t think it harms your development but think there is the potential for wealth to provide so much shelter that it limits or slows down some areas of development. Wealthy children are often more protected and have more done for them by others but may be exposed to more cultural experiences such as theatre or music. Whilst you can teach children that others are not as fortunate I think that many wealthy children find that hard to understand unless they experience the reality for themselves.

As so often it depends on the parenting…
(Martin UK at November 9, 2017 8:24 pm)
It does not because it increases and improves wider aspects of a child’s well-being

Rich or poor , parents have to guide our children into becoming generous with their time and attitude. All children need to learn the importance of hard work and trying to improve all around them. Extremes of wealth and poverty are more unusual and most of us are somewhere in the middle. Maybe one day we will live in a world where life is more equal and fair.

Money in early childhood makes most difference to cognitive outcomes, while in later childhood and adolescence it makes more difference to social and behavioural outcomes.

Its not the wealth that is the problem its the parenting and teaching of morals to go with the wealth.

Being wealthy as a child can often lead to children behaving badly, and can sometimes even lead to substance abuse as a teen and young adult.

You are right Harry but also being too too poor can have the same affect that you need drugs to help you to cope up with the situations
