Advice and Support for Family-Run Businesses I Belfast I Familosophy

Dec 11

Consider the Following: What is the best way to communicate your family's wealth to small children? Where do you begin this process? How can you say 'no' and impose spending constraints on them when they respond, "but we can afford it"?

Affluenza and entitlement-itis are two of the newest 'diseases' afflicting the wealthy, and there's always the ubiquitous 'privilege' that practically everyone is now required to check.

Rachel Sherman, associate professor of sociology, interviewed 50 affluent parents in and around New York City for her book Uneasy Street: The Anxieties of Affluence.

They are divided between the stigma associated with riches and the competitive atmosphere in which they find themselves. While parents want to provide their children with the opportunities that come with affluence, they also want to keep them 'normal' and able to interact comfortably in (and be accepted by) broad social circles.

While 'tough love' is necessary to prevent pampering, it is equally necessary to teach children to be comfortable with money and to enjoy the benefits it brings. Accept it, but do not assume it.
