    Misunderstood the context of the questioin. Yes, it is GREAT to have friendships but it is wise to for children from affluent socioeconomic background have such friendships w/similarly affuent children who have something in commonality.

    And it assumes that wealthy means better and it most certainly does not.

    Note this can be of friends/associations of different socio/economic backgrounds not just lower ones

    Social class determines so much.Children from affluent socioecnomic classes have a different perspective on life than those from lower socioecnomic backgrounds.Affluent children are raised/inculcated differently than children from the lower class.

    Not necessary, children from socioecnomically affluent backgrounds have a different mindset than children from lower socioeconomic backgrounds who are taught VERY DIFFERENT things in terms of achievemen, education, & success!
