Want to Raise Financially Successful Children? A 30-Year Study Says Teach Them This 1 Thing
By in Inc.
A newly published study makes a strong link between a specific behavior set and future income.
We all worry, to some extent, about how financially successful we’ll be. But if you’re a parent, there’s an extension of that concern that gets talked about less often, which is the financial success of your children.
Of course, it’s not all about the money. Parents should do what they can to help enable a child’s happiness and raise them to be well-adjusted. But if you knew you could do something to increase the likelihood of your adult child becoming financially successful (without sacrificing their happiness/overall well-being), I’m betting you’d want to do it.
Well, now you can. A 30-year study published last month
in the Journal of American Medical Association Psychiatry
followed the lives of 2,850 6-year-old children. They found participants who went on to make less annual income between the ages of 33-35 all had one common trait demonstrated at a young age.

“Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers.
Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society.
Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears.
Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi
