I was wondering how the concept of money for a growing child affects their outlook on life and overall perception of happiness.
Does the perceived need for money distort someone's view on the world? Do one start to believe that money is a requirement for all objects and activities? If money was never present in a childhood, does the person see the world clearer? Money might not be present in childhood if the child is growing up in a very wealthy situation where all needs are met and money is never discussed. Money would also not enter the lives of child who lives in a barter society or an impoverished society.
Does money act as a dividing screen from reality? Instead of seeing the object or the world as it is, does the money that object is worth, obstruct their vision of reality?
