In the article “Just whom is this Divorce good for? By Marquart she explains, “We found that children of so- called “good” divorces often do worse even than children of unhappy low- conflict marriages. They say more often, that family life was stressful and they had to grow up to soon. They are themselves more likely to divorce and children of divorce feel like divided selves”.

The rapid growth of industrialisation and collectivisation led to a dramatic decrease in births in the early 1930’s. The government tried to implement measures to bring the birth rate back up.

Children who lack friends tend to feel isolated, suffer insecurities and usually withdraw themselves more. They may struggle to communicate, share and understand the needs and feelings of others.

Their carer may be the person they see the most in the day.
Husbands, brothers, and fathers had died in pretty much every family and household. There were many things that women were expected to do during the war, such as working, volunteering, and having kids to keep the population up. However, the role of women did not remain this way after the war. Once the war was over and the men began to return home, women were expected to return to the kitchens and hearths as before, and women in the army lost their

Depression is when you are experiencing one of those feelings that won’t go away. Having this feeling will affect your day to day life, school, work, sleep, social life etc. Most commonly people can’t control their negative thoughts, which makes there depression get even worse as they get even more negative thoughts.

Spanking is intolerable Spanking is surrounding the world. It’s like a disease and made the kids scared of their parent. When the children did something wrong, parents thought they should spank the kids and let the kids remember what get them into trouble? Is it a good idea? Of course not, all people know that fighting can’t solve anything, and sometimes it would make the problem worse.
Spanking your child without telling your child what they did wrong or why they are being punished can leave a child feeling unloved and undeseable. Some parents have been known to torment their child for every little thing they have done wrong, instead of using spanking as a form of discipline. Parents that have not been properly taught by other parents before them on the proper way to spank, can spank their child too much and have a child becoming violent and non good person for the society. A spanking should be a last recur. A parent should first explain to their child what he/she did wrong.
