Pursuing wealth may not be good for your kids says Pyschology Today:
the pursuit of status and material wealth by high-earning families
(say, $120,000 and above) tends to leave skid marks on the kids, but in
ways you might not have expected. Affluent suburban high schoolers not
only smoke more, drink more and use more hard drugs than typical high
schoolers doâ€”they do so more than a comparison group of inner-city
kids. In addition, they have much higher rates of anxiety and, in
general, higher rates of depression.
Although once again, one of the strongest predictors of success was family dinners together!
