  1. 1. Economic Status from Childhood and Adulthood <br />Khalilah Peters<br />
  2. 2. Instroduction<br />Growing up poor or rich can have no effect on adult success. Success can mean a lot of different things. Accomplishing a small or large goal can mean success, winning your first reward, and be a personal short term or a long term achievement. Whatever you define as success doesn’t depend on what your economic status was as a child. The decision to stay successful could be because you had a mentor, you were left it buy family or, you just have a strong mental state and want to accomplish personal goals, not on economic status as a child. This paper will explain how childhood economic status doesn’t determine success in adulthood.<br />

  4. 4. With the right mentoring program or mentoring adult a child from a lower economic status can still be successful<br />Early childhood interventions demonstrate positive effects on children in their health and future well-being. The impact of childhood intervention is very important, because the first five years of life are so important. What children learn in their first five years can impact the next thirty years of their lives. This includes better reproductive health and birth outcomes, higher cognitive skills, school achievement and performance, higher school attainment, higher earnings capacity, and lower rates of delinquency and crime. <br /> Preschool programs for mostly at risk three and four year olds provide center-based educational enrichment and family services, and they have experienced the largest growth in public funding. Although such programs can promote health and well-being, several limitations in the knowledge base are evident. One is that there is only a small amount of evidence that large-scale public programs have long term effects into adulthood<br />
  5. 5. Children from a rich economic status don’t always become rich adults.<br />The United States spends more on education than any other country this isn’t because the weekly schoolyard massacres keep classroom sizes down. These figures come from the start of term, for example, U.S. primary schools spend $5,300 per pupil, compared with an average for member nations of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development of $3,033. Quebec spends about $4,550 Canadian per pupil.<br />So what does the U.S. get in return for this investment in the future? America gets students who are now statistically not the smartest in the world. According to the most recent surveys, they're just about holding their own with Cyprus. For those readers who are American college graduates, Cyprus is a small island in the Mediterranean, population 745,000, principal crops grain, grapes, carobs, citrus fruits and olives.<br />
  6. 6. If you have a strong and driven mental state you can beat any economic odds and become successful.<br />Economic status is a composite measure that combines annual family income and ownership of stocks and bonds with subjective assessments of financial well-being and reports of past financial problems with rent and mortgage payments, medical care, and saving money for the future. There is considerable group variation on these indicators of living standards. In objective terms, Asian Americans enjoy significant material advantages over Latinos and African Americans. Although a majority of African Americans (66%) and Latinos (63%) report annual family incomes of less than $40,000, a majority of Asian Americans (52%) indicate yearly family incomes greater than $40,000. A majority of Asian Americans (51%) own stocks, bonds,<br />Or mutual funds, whereas a majority of African Americans (66%) and Latinos (67%) do not.9<br />When asked to describe their personal financial situations, 64% of Asian Americans, and 53% of Latinos report that their financial state is either excellent or good, but a majority (51%) of African Americans say their financial situation is either poor or “not so good.” African Americans and Latinos are also more likely than Asian Americans to report they have experienced difficulty paying mortgages or rents, getting medical care, or saving money for future needs. (Chong D., Kim. D., 2006)<br />
  7. 7. Objections<br />Socioeconomic status and health status are directly related across the world. Children with<br />low-socioeconomic status not only experience greater health problems in childhood but also aspects of their socioeconomic status become biologically incorporated through both critical periods of development and cumulative effects, leading to poor health outcomes as adults. We explore 3 main influences related to child’s socioeconomic status that impact long-term health: the material environment, the social environment, and the structural or community environment. These influences illustrate the importance of clinical innovations, health services research, and public policies that address the socioeconomic determinants of these distal health outcomes <br />
  8. 8. Conclusion<br /> In conclusion I conclude that growing up poor or rich can have a no effect on adult success. Success does mean a lot of different things. Accomplishing a small or large goal can mean success, winning your first reward, and be a personal short term or a long term achievement. Whatever you define as success doesn’t depend on what your economic status was as a child. The decision to stay successful isn’t based on personal goals, not on economic status as a child. This paper will explain how childhood economic status doesn’t determine success in adulthood.<br /> <br />
