To start with, children raised in households that are not in possession of a good fortune will learn to be self-controlled and self-restrained in their early years. These individuals learn from their infancy onward that not everything they want will become theirs automatically. From time to time their wishes go beyond their parents’ means and they have to accept rejection. But these children will interpret menial first jobs as an integral part of life rather than a devastating experience. Hence they end up be better able to manage stress in their adult years and less likely to panic when problem occurs.
Apart from that, children brought up by parents of low or middle economic status often grow up to be physically, mentally and professionally more independent that children brought up by well-to-do parents. They know how to get the most our of a modest allowance. And they understand that more often than not they must put forth great effort before their desire is fulfilled so they will be unrelenting in pursing their dreams.
Finally, parents who do not have a large fortune typically have higher aspirations for their children. They are less likely to spoil their kids. These adults would have high behavioral, educational and occupational expectations for their children. Children raised in such rigorous environments will have good problem-solving skills and apparently better than children raised otherwise.
In conclusion, I maintain that children raised in not so well-off family are more than likely to become elites in their future years than children raised in households of large fortune.
