Affluence

Teach your kids to be more than book-smart;

Teach your kids to think.

Teach your kids to place value on things that aren’t material—

                friendships

                                intelligence

                                                experiences

 

Because in the long run,

               when they’re drowning in luxury—

               when they’re drowning in credit card bills—

   when they’ve produced identical copies of themselves—copies who place more

               value on social status, clothes, and the number of “likes” they get—

 

               ...what do they really have?
