When a child born in to a poor family there is a 100% chance that they will grow up poor too like their own parents. Many factors affected the child's bright future. Could be because lack of financial resources to give proper education to the child. Lack of better employment choices when they grow up and most of all they were easily discouraged because for them life is already a matter of survival. When a child born in to a rich family mostly of this children become successful and wealthy like their parents. They have access to the good and proper education...can have many influential connections to help them obtaining high paying salary and above all they have the confidence to attract money because they are born that way. Now not all poor children ended poor in their adult lives but some become millionaires...but it seldom happens. Does it proves that many poor people are multiplying but only few rich people were in the midst of our world population. Do you have any idea how to change the life of this poor people? Or maybe poor people must start the change with in their selves? Please share and have a nice day.

of course the lack of education and circumstances come into play when people grow up rich and poor. but the real reason this happens is because of the different ways people think, act, and react to what they are going through. how the think, act, and react to subjects like money. a child born into poor families are taught to be poor. like a child born into rich families are taught to be rich. so their blueprint, their way of thinking is so different. there are poor children who grow up to be rich because they think they can! so it's about what you want, and how strong you and how much be believe you can be and have.

their are lots of things to do to change the lifistyle of a poor people. you have to go to school so that you will have stable job. or many poor people does not have an education,so they have to work at a very young age so that they can feed theirselves and their family. but most poor people just go with the flow of their poornessthats why poor people remains poor.while rich people can do and get what they want in life, go the best school. and in most cases rich people remains rich because they are grabbing all the chances in life so that they will remain as rich as they are,

Hello lyz!! Being poor and rich could be a very big factor for someone to be successful. Rich kids get successful because all they need to do is study and get honors. They have time to go out and be with friends. The poor ones got lots of things to do. Help find money to help there parents, look for money to pay for project, they need to work and study at the same time.

Hello lyzabelle: Hmmp... The fact is. It is the beginning of the struggle my friend for it is clear that nowadays that the poor will become the more poorer and the rich will become the more richer... it is the system of Satan well implemented in our world. Nothing we can do about it............. but the truth is this system is so widespread because of us. huhuhu, it is true that Evil things succeed when good people don't act. it is so shameful.....

Well on the rich end of the spectrum, unless someone really bungles up the finances and loses everything, then they will stay rich. The children will be rich and their children, moving on down the list bit by bit. It is just the set of cards that life will has dealt. It is doable to go from rich to poor in a heartbeat but it is not as common as one might think. The thing is that most fortunes start with a single penny. You never know when the right opportunity will present itself. Why not now? Why wait? Poor people could start out poor and rise themselves a bit above the line of being poor. All it takes is a little bit of hard work and some patience. Granted, there are some people who are just doomed but you do not really have to roll over and accept it. You can try and work to better yourself and maybe generations down the line, that family will be in a bit better place.

The idea of poor and rich is propagated by the rich. The poor really don't care until this rich people make them poor as they are. But if you see, when these people are poor and strive to it, they become much richer that the rich. It just tells us that rich and lousy and lazy.

I agree that most of the child born will live and die being poor just like of thier parents and same with the child born rich. The poor multiply so easily because of most of the parents that comes from this status they keep on getting pregnant. As you could observe most of the family they have 5- 7 kids. How can they afford to support those kids with there low income. Whereas the rich family they manage to control and maintain to have 1-3 kids only. Because they know that's the only amount of family they can afford to support. To stop this I guess family planning, for poor family. Then need to be educated on how to control or plan their family.

i remember one of my professors discussing about that... if i remember correctly, as the poor family raises their kids in satisfaction of sending them to school, offering them a shelter and food, the kids would then grow up keeping in their minds that it would be well and good as long as you can give the very same ones your parents gave you.. they would even tell the kids, "it's ok as long as we're happy and together.." while on the other hand, the rich ones.. they never get satisfied. they are always out of sight because of work and the kids always recognize that. the time they grow up, they know for a fact that if they could not give at least an offering equal to what their parents gave them, their family won't be a happy one...

Government should give quality of education to both the children's of rich and poor so that the talent of the child matters not the money of their parents.

Not all people born poor stay poor. My dad came from a poor family, but he worked hard and now makes about 100k a year and has his PhD. Rich kids can often stay rich by doing absolutely nothing and just living off of their family's money. I wouldn't define that as success. Unfortunately, a lot of people born into poor families really have the right mindset. They're told they won't amount to anything and not giving the same opportunities as richer children. This, then, prevents them from getting further in life.

The gap between the rich and the poor is widening enough and it's almost impossible to stop poor families from producing poor children too. I think the government should give more education in the health reproductive of the women in general because they are the ones who bears a child. There should be a limit in how many kids the family can have. First thing that a marriage couple should know is can they be able to give a bright future for their children if they have more than they can afford to raise. Somehow the government should emphasize in educating the women about population control. I'm sorry if I offended anyone...not meant for that to happen just my opinion. Peace.

It is true that when your poor, you need to do the best to achieve what you wanted in life, it will be hard life, not easy as the rich people do because they have the money, the power and influence. But education is needed to be improve her in my country so that poor people can have the benefit to educate themselves because if they will be given a chance to study, then at least it can help them get good job. Poverty is really vast in third world countries and corruption is also the same thing that help increase getting people more poorer. But we can do something about it if we do help each other. If people can be empowered through proper education and given a job, i think that it can eradicate poverty in the nation.

We are living in a world which we cannot understand the logic behind.Yes - some are rich and some are poor. This is all created by the Creator,with what understanding he has created he only knows. We believe that every one takes birth in this world according to his past karma s.Hence we are advised by elders to do good in this life so that we may at least enjo9y the basic benefits min the following birth. It is highly impossible to change the fate of poor people. They have to suffer and there is no other go. A single person like you and me cannot do any change.Because the whole contains heavy poor population. But one thing we can do is to pray for their well being everyday.

You're wrong. Not most of kids that're born rich become rich as well. Because they're born rich, they don't have enough determination in becoming rich. And poor children aren't discouraged. The fact that they lived striving for life gives them enough determination to become rich.

It is true that most poor people stays poor and rich people stays rich. Since it is a reality that it happens that way, most poor people are discouraged to work their way out of that. Some reason is simply because people looked down upon them. The way they dressed, the way they act. But nowadays, Governments gives bursaries and other Financial Assistance to those poor people to aid them in their lives to encourage them. Those poor people must also help themselves to just not to be afraid and overcome all those difficulties to be able to earn a living and become rich.

Fist of all.. nice topic belle . Yes i agree with you about 95 % of the poor stay poor and rich stay rich . Rich earning more will definitely increase our per captia income but not the development . As the gap between poor and rich is rising and rising . The poverty level also rises simultaneously .The government should kindly take some steps to avoid such increase of poverty levels .The rich people exploit the poor people . Yes, I have seen many poor people becoming richer than me. The reason is that they got education . So the government should focus on providing education for the poor so that the gap between the rich and poor decreases . Our future that is India's future really depends on this .
