No Really, How Rich Are You? Find Out.
American Society, your children are whining for toys and candy in Walmart. This is a stark contrast to the children that I’ve observed in much poorer countries: (i.e. Cambodia). I’ve visited 14 other countries as well and I have yet to see children as misbehaved as I do in America. I will venture a guess that the way children behave in public is a reflection of how the adults behave in private. (Are you selfish. Do you frequently talk about the things you wish you could have? Are you angry when other people have bigger TVs than you? Your children pick up on this). I’m not saying that well behaved children aren’t out there, and I’m not saying that it isn’t the worst behaved children that catch my eye either. What I am saying is teach your children to appreciate what they do have. You, yourselves, appreciate what you have. Most likely you are in the top 10% in the world. Take the quiz and find out. Also, check out these happy children below, none of them have air-conditioning, some don’t have parents (these were taken in an orphanage), and one of them doesn’t even have a house (he’s living on that boat).
