For children growing up during the Great Depression life was constant turmoil and grief They rarely had food or were nourished or protected as the average child today is Around 250000 children became homeless wandering the streets with no place to go and no families to care for them Rummaging through the garbage was a main source of food for them During the harsh and horrid winters children went without shoes without clothing or shelter Education for children Ceased in several areas of the United States This put a load of children into the gruesome life of being a childteen without an education As time passed their lack of an education was only a downfall in their searching for a decent job and their position when it came to social status These facts connect directly to what is being taught in History Classes around the US Life for children was radically different during the depression than ever before in US history Children were forced to take on more responsibilities at younger ages and too many children lost the opportunity to go to school to either working or because the school had to close down due to lack of money Children began bringing home incomes to their parents which put a slight reverse on the normal way of Parents provide for children There was no choice so the children set out to find abnormal jobs tying loose ends and doing things their parents couldnt Children were abandoned and some were left wandering the streets searching for work The Great Depression took an enormous toll on the quality of life for not only adults and parents but children as well Children were forced to grow up before their time and work in attempts to support their families
