    Many of the potential singers and dancers and even the athletes have proved their mettle despite poverty

      Nowadays, young people who are dancers, singers, actresses, & athletes come from at the lowest, solidly middle class homes.  No dancer, singer, actress, & athlete come from poor homes nowadays, WAKE UP.  Once born poor, DIE poor, NO EXCEPTION

    I would say those that manage success despite starting from poverty are exceptions. I'm also someone who believes luck is more important to becoming successful than talent or hard work. I'm sure there's plenty of talented and hard working people who aren't able to achieve as they want because they simply don't have the resources at their disposal.

      Luck is definitely an important ingredient of life , sometimes being at right place and that too at right time gives you an advantage over others.

      But in here is the underlying relevance of awareness that is created only out of education .

      90-99% of the time once a child is born in the lower socioeconomic echelons of society,there's very little to no chance that h/she'll leave his/her socioeconomically impoverished state. Poor children are in hell & will remain thus their ENTIRE li

    I shall be addressing & discussing the issue of socioeconomic poverty in the United States of America.  In the United States of America, 90-99% of the time, socioeconomic poverty is a very strong impediment to nurturing & flourishing talent.  Children born into socioeconomic poverty have a hell's chance of ever becoming phenomenally successful & using their utmost human potential.  In impoverished environments, the main emphasis is on survival & the lower basic human needs.  Education & high human needs are viewed & considered as very superfluous, even unnecessary. 

    Children born into socioeconomic poverty which should be considered from upper lower to solidly lower income oftentimes do not have the monetary resources to nurture their talents.  Cultural & intellectual activities costs money which is far beyond the reach of poor families. 
    Also, poor families don't have books in their homes which puts them academically behind their solidly middle, upper middle, & upper class counterparts who have books & other forms of intellectual stimulation in the homes.

    Poor children also aren't encouraged by their parents to use their talents.  Poor parents are quite dismissive of their children's talents.  All poor parents want is that their children work as early as they are able in order to supplement familial income.   Poor parents aren't like solidly middle, upper middle, & upper class parents who avidly encourage & nurture their children's talents & education.  It is very rare for poor children to complete secondary education, if that, they are oftentimes forced to drop out of school to work in order to support their parents & siblings thus forfeiting their talents & educational opportunities.

    To reiterate, being poor/impoverished in the United States of America severely impedes the use & flourishing of children's talents.  It also impedes their educational opportunities.  Poor/impoverished children in the United States of America DON'T go as far educationally as their counterparts from solidly middle, upper middle, & upper class homes who oftentimes have the highest educational levels.  By contrast, poor/impoverished children in the United States of America have the LOWEST educational levels.  All this should be a strong indicator as to why poor/impoverished people SHOULDN'T EVER have children because the latter will be condemned to a life of impoverishment, scarcity, struggle, & want.Yes, poor people should never think of having children for this reason.
