Life AS A Child During The 1930's

       Do you know the struggles that children had to Face in the 1930’s? Do you know what families had to do during The Great Depression? Well in the Following paragraphs I will give to a clear Idea or understanding on what was doing on In the Children’s Right Movement, What was the movement about, and my opinion on this Subject.

       The Children’s movement is a historical and modern movement committed to the acknowledgment, expansion, and/or regression of the rights of children around the world. Children Rights are the Human rights of children with particular attention to the rights of special protection and care afforded to the young, including their right to association with both biological parents, Human Identify as well as the basic needs for food, universal state-paid education, health care and criminal laws appropriate for the age and development of the child Applications of children's rights range from allowing children to do whatever they wish to the enforcement of children being physically, mentally and emotionally free from  abuse.

        The child civil rights movement was a form of protest because children were dying in Factories because of Taberculosis and pneumonia, and industrialization.

         So Because of this President Hoover calls for a conference. In the achievement President Roosevelt started the Nation Recovery achievement and works to out law the child labor laws. In the outcome children under sixteen years old   cannot have jobs that wasn’t on a farm. Child labor law was passed across the world but only five states followed this law.

         Factories are finding ways around the law by forging children’s working papers (political), because there were only two inspectors through out the whole New York state. Factories are getting away with it during inspections because Factory owners are training children to hide and never to come out with the inspections is in play.

       The Lawrence Strike of 1912  (23,000 went on strike because factories speeded up the machines and lowered salaries). So Luis Hines (a photo journalist) traveled across the world and took pictures of child labor and used it to gain support for children. The leader of this strike was Camellia Teoil; she took action by talking to congress. Her method was successful because Lawrence mills offered better wedges; better working conditions and fewer workdays.

        I come to a conclusion that we, as children don’t take advantage of our education even though we should.  We laugh at the poor and the homeless because the are unfortunate, but you think that they would be on the streets if they got an education and pursued something in life. Children need to pay attention in school and take life seriously if not you too will be the joke of your laughter. Children should learn their history as far as Slavery and The Great Depression, so they can get a better understanding of the struggles children had to face to make a living for themselves and their families, it was like a matter of survival (a time of poverty and violence). learn your History so you can know that it wasn’t a choice to go to school and know why your ancestors fought for you to get and education. No one wants to lead the life of a gangbanger, that’s no life to pursued. So I think that we the children should take advantage of our education so we can have a wide rage of opportunities when we become older and begin to find our voice in society.
