    Why is it that kids out of wealth seem to idolize the kids who have wealth? Why is it that kids who don’t really have money never realize the dark side of parent(s) never being around or at anything for their children becuse of money? Why is it that kids out of wealth will never understand?

    First of all, there are negligent and uncaring parents in all classes, just as there are loving, available parents in all classes. It’s true that money can’t compensate for a neglegent parent, but it can relieve you from a lot of chronic stress that poor kids face every day. I’m not a kid, but as a very low income adult, I can tell you that wealth gives people many more options – not just bling and nice clothes, but the ability to live in safer areas and afford better health care.

    From Gossip Girl to the late Dirty, Sexy Money and any number of lame reality shows about dating, marrying or becoming millionaires, kids are bombarded with the message that being rich is glamorous and not being rich makes you a loser. Based on the lousy economy though more studios are looking to reinvent blue collar and working class vehicles of the sort that used to reign on TV (Roseanne, All In The Family, etc.). So maybe we’ll start to see a new realization that most of us aren’t wealthy, will never be rich and should work harder on being good, creative and kind people rather than the monied cardboard cut outs we see on television.
