A rich family does not necessarily raise a grateful person

His father said on the show:

“Everyone gives in to her, including her brother.Don’t let her. She really hits you. You know how headstrong she is.”

This kind of coddling, tolerating and responding will only give her the illusion that the world should revolve around her, and will naturally produce a self-centered, selfish and spoiled child who lacks empathy.

Parents' attitude towards money affects their children's whole life

Rich raising may not raise a grateful child. One day, when the parents’ ability fails to satisfy the child’s desire, the child may even complain and retaliate against the parents.

Wang spends 200, 300, 000 yuan a year studying in Japan for five years. He spends more than 1.5 million yuan studying abroad, all of which is supported by his mother’s income of 7,000 yuan a month.

On April 1, 2011, he stabbed his mother nine times in the airport because he couldn’t get money from her.


Wang mother in order to borrow money, but finally in exchange for his son’s 9 knife stabbed.


The money education that pays blindly so, can let a child become utilitarian cold-blooded only, obtain ceaselessly to parents, turn a blind eye to the hardship of parents.

Only through careful education can children truly understand that they can enjoy a lot of happiness even if they are not rich.
