It is well known that peer relationships are crucial to tween’s development of a positive self-image, and that economic resources can be an important mean to attract friends and to avoid bullying. However, the questions if and how children actually perceive economic resources as a mean to attract friends have not been sufficiently answered. This is one of the issues that the present study attempts to approach. In order to fully understand the social consequences of not being able to consume to the same extent as peers, in a society where everyday life is strongly influenced by consumption, we must know more about how the mechanisms of economic resources and social inclusion are viewed through the eyes of children.
