Do any of you ladies feel that your income or status effects the way you raise your children? In my sociology course i am reading a chapter that is a little offensive but may very well prove true. They state that parents of lower incomes teach their children more conformity were as parents with more dispensible income teach their children about creativity. Does parenting really have anything to do with the kind of money we make?? Cause if so we're screwed..LOL! I just wanted your intake on this.Answer Question

Well, I can understand that, actually. Having more money can open up a lot more opportunities for children- music lessons, sports, art lessons... When you're going from paycheck to paycheck and still in debt up to your ears, you're not going to have the extra money to send your kids to learn the piano or how to oil paint. So I wouldn't necessarily consider it "teaching conformity" or "creativity", but I would definitely consider it a difference in opportunity that can lead to different paths in life.
