Teaching Rich Kids

Rich kids are very hard to bring under your thumb. Be it a parent or a tutor, somewhere rich kids leave them behind. Their attitudes are very different from that of other kids their age. They come about as more world-wise, sophisticated and experienced beyond their age. Maybe it’s the money that makes them think that they are better than the rest of the world. Maybe it’s the exposure to high flying things that comprises of their parents’ lifestyle.

The standoffish and better than thou attitude that they treat everybody with right from the hired help to kids their age who are not as privileged as them is sometimes funny and at most times nerve-racking. These kids need to be handled very gently to be able to bring them around to face the realities of life and to make nice and down to earth human beings out of them.

A TV show that deals with the sense and sensibilities of handling rich kids is ‘Privileged’. It has Joanna Garcia, Ashley Newbrough and Lucy Hale in the lead. This is one show to look out for.
