    In the U.K., the gap between the rich and poor is growing ever wider. The country's impoverished children are the most vulnerable victims of this divide. The documentary Poor Kids profiles the daily lives and observations of a handful of these children, and sheds light on an escalating epidemic of poverty that afflicts million more kids just like them/10(6).   America’s New Great Society: Rich Kids vs. Poor Kids J , Spencer Irvine, 2 Comments Robert Putnam, a professor of public policy at Harvard’s Kennedy School and a noted social science author, spoke about the growing opportunity gap .

      That’s the biggest political economic event of our lifetimes: the unprecedented fall of a rich country, once the world’s richest, to become a poor one. It simply hasn’t happened in modern history, which is usually about poor countries becoming richer ones, like South Korea and China. Use these sort stories to enrich your family life: they'll help you to be a better parent, your children to be better kids, and your baby to develop healthy at emotional and intelectual levels.
