The Struggle of Parenthood in the 1930's

Being a parent in Germany in the 1930's was a struggle. There were conflicts between the parent and children on values about Hitler. Parents had their own ideas about Hitler and his message; some agreed and some didn't. Most parents opposed what their children thought because they weren't brought up in the rein of Hitler. The children of Hitler Youth grew up thinking that Hitler was god and their parents were just another figure. The number one thing parents worry about when they have kids is being a good role model. 1930 German parents could not be a good role model because they didn't have control of their kids. Hitler was a child's role model. Hitler was the person every kid wanted to be. Last but not least, parents didn't have the pleasure of raising their kids to be outgoing and unique.
