I believe that's how it works for the most part, yes. I mean in my experience I grew up pretty poor. I remember working (mowing yards) from the age of like 5 just to afford food and to help my mom with the bills. Wasn't spoiled and I value a dollar more than most kids now.0

In a sense, of course. But in another view, no. Richer families give their children a lot of material garbage and a lot of children who grew up rich become materialistic (which comes with the territory), greedy, and selfish. They had everything handed to them. So they really know no other way of living.
Poor families do try to spoil their children. Most of them can't afford much of anything but will save all year long just to supply their children with that one big item they've been asking for. Poor families have a different way of spoiling their kids. They spoil them with love and attention. Which is better than any material thing that I can think of.
I grew up middle class. I had what I needed and most of what I wanted. I was slightly greedy at one point. No doubt about that. Until I got older and watched the struggle that my mother went through just to supply us with material things that were just going to end up broken within a few months. It was at that point that I started working as well (9 years old) to help my mother make up for my fathers absence. I found that with my mother and I both working we were able to bring the family closer together as well.0
