No as long as the child is guided it does not harm
(Julius(Uganda) at November 13, 2017 4:49 am)
Children sometimes from wealth families do not look at their future and do not attend school which harms their development
(Alex(Uganda) at November 13, 2017 5:10 am)
No it does not harm our development because you have each and everything you want
(Julius(Uganda) at November 27, 2017 2:50 pm)
it is realy harmful coz a child grows when he/she knows only one kind of life of spoon feeding
(elvis king(uganda) at November 30, 2017 10:55 am)
yes it affects the child because,he/she will not learn how to work and look for money,the child gets used to free money and everything is free and is being provided for that child.
(martin(uganda) at November 30, 2017 11:05 am)
Good discussion, bright ideas.
(Ivan( Ugandan) at November 30, 2017 11:51 am)
wealthy can only affect a child’s development if the parents use money as a solution to everything. (what you sow is what you reap). lets say if a child is expelled or suspended from school and parents what use money to bribe the teachers in that the child stays at school this affects the child because he or she has not learnt from his mistakes.

I think that wealth will only affect a child’s development if the parents raise them differently because of it. For example, if they are spoilt, or aren’t taught to properly value certain things in life, the children could experience problems, particularly in their teenage years.

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
(Dr. hope kenya at November 4, 2017 1:06 pm)
Being wealthy can not spoil a child if he/she knows how to use that wealth. if you are wealth used avoid being proud and you should use your wealth right and at the same time listen to advice from adults.

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

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.

knowledge from school is important but the born knowledge is so good. if you have wealth from childhood when time goes when you are growing you will be so proud of your self and at last you will lose everything
(elvis king(uganda) at November 30, 2017 11:07 am)
yes because it gives the child alot of pride because they know they have everything in life
(Frank (Uganda) at November 30, 2017 11:08 am)
Yes because the person starts to think that everything can be solved by money, money controls everything and yet that is not the case. like forexample if the child misbehaves at school then instead of punishment the parents thinks of money to solve the problem.
(ivan(uganda) at November 30, 2017 11:14 am)
yes because the child grows up to be too lazy, everything is being done for them with the money they have.
(amili(uganda) at November 30, 2017 11:16 am)
No because the child has to inherit the riches from the parents to live that good life of being rich but to some extent, the child can be forced to think of killing there parents for them to remain with those riches.
(julius(uganda) at November 30, 2017 11:20 am)
Yes because the child will be looking at the riches and even if he/she has studied /gone to school they will not want to work and yet it can happen that those riches can perish and it becomes hard for that person to survive.
(frank(uganda) at November 30, 2017 11:24 am)
Since all crimes and bad doings are connected with money then the child is free from the world of bad deeds because they already have money.

I read an article where Jay Z discusses this! He says that growing up wealthy means you have very different opportunities, but overall, it is all of the things money can’t buy that are the most important, and this comes from how you are brought up, not from your wealth. I think he’s right, but due to these opportunities i think people may take a lot of things for granted.

It affects because one can fail to go to school
(Alex Uganda at November 30, 2017 11:27 am)
Wow, Henry is it true that poverty makes it ok for you to steal and kill others? I think even if you are poor you can live by good moral behaviours and treat others the way you want to be treated. Poverty should not be an excuse to harm others.
(Gary UK at November 30, 2017 11:30 am)
Yes poverty leads to a state of despair to the extent that somebody is forced to do so many things, even killing and stealing depending on the condition.

It harms the child because he doesnt work so hard to get what to eat, he finds everything on the table. This doesnt promote hardwork.

Parents can be rich and still make their child work. It all depends on the parents attitude to money.
(Helen Canada at November 30, 2017 11:34 am)
Any parent who grows up with that heart of giving out money to his child from childhood to adulthood but when money disappears from the family and they become poor the family suffers even the children develop bad habits and even end up on the streets….
(Henry Uganda at November 30, 2017 11:49 am)
A child will go to the streets as the last resort of earning because he will be used to money so this affects the child and his development.
(Ivan Uganda at November 30, 2017 11:50 am)
a child growing up from a wealthy background means will be able to get a lot of connections in the future since the majority of people interact mostly with rich people.
(isabirye(uganda) at November 30, 2017 12:28 pm)
No Ivan because the parents will always teach their child to work hard so as to maintain the riches and also helps them learn how to work and be independent instead because they would not want to loose the riches and become poor in life.

Yes it does. It means we take things for granted. It means that we appreciate important things less such as love, family and sharing. Not being short of money can make us lazy as we dont realise we have to work for things or make an effort. It would be good if all people who are well off in terms of money and resources had to spend time living without those things either in their own country or abroad.
(Andrew UK at November 30, 2017 11:38 am)
being poor is a disease and this means wealth doesn’t affect a child’s development.
(Yusuf(uganda) at November 30, 2017 12:23 pm)
the child’s personality changes negatively by bragging around and not respecting elders and this is because they don’t struggle to get this money.

(Katy Vose at November 9, 2017 8:22 pm)
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.
(Hannah UK at November 9, 2017 8:23 pm)
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.
(Lis UK at November 9, 2017 8:23 pm)
As so often it depends on the parenting…

It harms the child because he/she doesn’t get the chance to move around. For eg to shopping and get expenditure b’se everything is being provided at home.

I think it’s all to parenting and support regardless of wealth. I mean if you’re wealthy you may choose to give you kid everything on demand and let them be a brat or you may use your wealth to give them the best in a healthy way where they don’t take it for granted? I suppose it helps with good schools – affording to live in catchment areas for better schools and there fore has a knock on effect for education I think a lot comes down to taking things for granted or appreciating what you’ve got though

I think this primarily depends on the skills of parenting and how a child is brought up because being a teenager who is wealthy doesn’t mean that you have to steal or misbehave in anyway.

Answered on November 30, 2017 12:29 pm
Maybe the question is not what is normal but what is good or the best development for a child as a human being? Across various countries, cultures and religions I think there is a global common understanding about some of the factors we see as being ’good’. For example, kindness, sharing with others, respecting others, not harming others etc.

I think having money can help to ensure children access their children’s rights i.e. they can go to school, they can get enough food to eat, and they can sleep at night in a safe home. This is a positive thing which all children deserve. The issues we face are because of the inequality in our world – that some children don’t have access to enough wealth and thus cant access their rights and others have too much wealth so they dont learn to work hard and value what they have. The question is how can we create a fairer balance?
