Do you think children who are born into wealth learn values?

You hear of so many people who are born into wealth and fame that just can't "get themselves together". Paris, Nicole Ritchie, Lois and Britney. Money truly does not bring happiness. Choices bring happiness.

I don't think the money aspect really has anything to do with it. It's how the parent's raise the kid. If they use the money they have to do nothing but spoil the kids and don't teach them standards and morals because they think they're so much better than everyone else and that because they have money, they believe they don't need to have morals and standards then of course the kids aren't going to learn anything. They'll just go through life thinking that money means happiness, and money means never having to pay for what you do.

A lot depends on the parents, I think. Hilton's mother has made statements that indicate she thinks Paris is a girl who will make mistakes, etc., but she is really a 25 year old woman. Linday Lohan's father is a drunk and a convicted criminal, and her mother seems to like the party life. It's no wonder some of these celebs turn out so messed up. I'm sure there are plenty of people who grow up wealthy who have good values, but you don't hear about them because they're not crashing their cars into trees or getting arrested, they're just leading normal lives.
