    Less educated lower middle, working, & lower classes tend to think in terms of job practicality & security while the highly educated solidly middle, upper middle, & upper classes tend to think in terms of job advancement & growth.   The lower classes don't care if their children advance socioeconomically but want them to be the same as they are.  Conversely the more affluent classes want, even push their children to advance socioeconomically.  They also want their children to have jobs that they love as opposed to the lower classes who want their children to just have a job, nothing more nothing less.

      Lower classes have a tendency to believe in job practicality & security …   

      Higher classes have a tendency to be concerned job advancement & growth …   

      Lower classes do not envision a life where their children can advance socioeconomically

      Conversely, the high classes EXPECT and guide their children toward socioeconomic advancement. They see the possibility that their children can have jobs they ENJOY doing ...

      As opposed to the lower classes who do not expect anything more for their children, other than just getting by ... with no joy of life in present tems.

    Some people work with the objective to enjoy it (the process of work) only for the sake of itself. Their work is their play, so to speak, but they may not have enough foresight to save for the future or work toward career advancement.

    Others work only for the fruits of their labor, without enjoying the process. They may be saving for a rainy day without enjoying the sunshine of today.

    Others work for the fruits of their labor while enjoying the process and maintaining a rosy view of future prospects.
    2 (prospects) possibilities, potential, promise, expectations, outlook.


    In the final analysis, what life path seems better?

    1. To enjoy one's job in terms of the present, only. 
    2. To put off enjoying one's life until one gets home from work.
    3. To find work one enjoys for the sake of itself and for the sake of future rewards such as socioeconomic advancement / having enough money for raising children, retirement, vacations,  donating to charities, etc.
     

    Obviously, the answer is # 3.


    … so why do the lower classes even exist?

    Joy of life must be allowed from birth on. A child can not be twenty when he is not twenty.
    Parents of today seem afraid to allow their children freedom. Yes, there are boundaries children must learn and parents must teach, but within those boundaries, parents must give their children LIBERTY.
    Especially the first six years!!!!!

    So in conclusion, love is based on allowing our children to enjoy the moment. The moment must be seized by our little ones. If they are not allowed this right of freedom (self) when they are small how are they to embrace it when they are big?
