Child Consumerism Documentaries
'Kids + Money'

Growing up in Los Angeles, a child quickly learns the difference between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have nots,’ and where his or her family stands in that paradigm. A child also quickly learns how crucial a role consumerism plays in his or her social life; this microcosm of materialism is what Lauren Greenfield explores in her documentary ‘Kids + Money.’

‘Kids + Money’ is currently showing on HBO, and Lauren Greenfield examines the relationship that 13 Los Angeles children have with money.

As you might imagine, the documentary’s findings are astounding, but the children aren’t all at fault. Although the teens of ‘Kids + Money’ certainly feed off of each other’s materialism, their parents certainly enable their behavior and reinforce their belief in the power of wealth.
