Children who are brought up in families that do not have a lot of money are better prepared to deal with problems when they become adults than children who are brought up by wealthy parents. Children brought up in families with less money are better prepared. Do you agree or disagree with this statement?
Children brought up in families with less money are better prepared
In these days, there is a considerable improvement in people’s concern about child education. Also, people have realized the influence of family environment on the nature of children. Some people now feel that a child who has grown up in a poor family tends to be better prepared to deal with problems. However, in my opinion, family financial status alone does not much influence a child’s ability to solve problems.
A child who is born in a poor family will have more situations where they have to solve a problem or make a decision on their own. This is because in most unfortunate families, both parents are usually working and children are put into situations where they have to take care of themselves. However, rich children too have chances to learn to deal with problems. To illustrate, due to their wealth, rich children can experience and learn things that unfortunate children cannot. For example, they usually go to the best schools and receive higher education there, which prepares them for solving problems in their life.
Admittedly, few would disagree with the fact that each individual is different. That is, problem-solving skills come from both life experience and personality. The more experience people have in life, the more they can use these experience to adjust, to adapt and to solve problems they encounter. Personality also can be a factor in dealing with problems. A person who is optimistic, outgoing, confident and open-minded can look at and solve problems more effectively.
As Discussed above, nature and nurture have equal influence on a child’s ability to face challenges. Parents should spare no effort to figure out how they can help their children o be independent.
