Before heading on to the things that only the kids belonging to middle-class families have to face, it is very important to clear that ‘Nobody was born to be poor or chooses to be one of them’. In fact, ‘There’s nothing known as rich or poor, Rich is simply a poor man with money’. Moreover, we all are born and created equal with equal rights.

However, there is a thin difference and that comes in the form of lifestyle that people of different classes live. The necessities and luxuries speak up about middle-class and upper-class families. While a guy grown up in rich family continues to aspire for the moon, a kid born in middle-class is only stuck in meeting his necessities.

So, here we have come up with all those genuine things that the kids born in the middle-class family can only relate to.

There are always a certain set of rules or I must say, code of conduct that everybody has to follow. However, sadly, children are the ones who have to bear the thunder of rules much more than adults and if the children belong to a middle-class family, then the rules take the shape of laws. Well, one of them is to stop themselves from removing plastic covers attached to the seats of a new car, which somehow becomes irresistible for them. *laugh*

5. Adding water in shampoo bottle...

The choicest of snacks that are taken out from jars in order to serve the guests have always been the ones that kids of a middle-class family are hardly allowed to touch on a regular basis.

Well, there are two reasons why middle-class kids are bound to study hard- First, they have to fulfill their parents' dream of ‘Padh likh kar naam kaamega’ and of course ‘Paisa too’.
