True wealth is often different than the illusion of wealth. As adults, we might know what things cost and why we choose to spend our money on some things instead of other things. For kids, there are certain items that equal wealth, and they aren’t always things that are super expensive.

Perhaps you can relate to this idea. When you were a kid was there anything that the “rich” kids had that indicated that they were rich? Maybe it was something at their house. Maybe it was something they wore. Maybe you were considered a rich kid and there was something you had that you thought meant you were wealthy.

Sometimes kids end up setting life goals to own certain things because they think owning those items means you have made it in life. Some of these items might in fact be luxury items, but others really aren’t. It’s certainly interesting to see the world through the eyes of a child.
