I found this little article and I hope it helps: ''All armies in the Great War used kid soldiers. In the beginning of the war the enthusiasm to join the battle was so great… that young boys (and even girls) could hardly be stopped to enlist. Recruiting Officers in all countries closed their eyes when eager children clearly under the required age - 18 years old - showed up to join their armies. At the end of the war children were even more welcome in the ranks, as the Great Mincing Machine continued to require human bodies with an astonishing need. Hardly trained, the kids were send to the trenches in Belgium, France, Russia and Turkey, where they mingled and died with the older soldiers
the children in the first world war didnt really do anything because they were all evacuated to save them from getting hurt ^^^^ Evacuation procedures were not used in World… War 1. In World War 1, younger children would be kept hidden from the war by their mothers, to stop panic from the children. If you were over the age of around 7, you would probably go to work, or help out and fill the missing places of the men at war.
back in time, open up a page in the history book
The Children in World War 1 were exposed to the horror of war athome. The UK was unprepared for the air attacks from the GermanAirship, but quickly the public learned to seek …shelter. Childrenwere taught to use gas mask and were to seek shelter. The lessontaught in schools both in Britain and German reflected theircountries roles in the war.
The main problem would be that millions of European women lost their husbands or fiancees in the conflict. Especially in Britain, Germany and France there was a very serious d…earth of young manhood after the War. This meant that many women were widowed, as well as a great many more who never married, and widows usually did not re-marry as young men due to the millions of fatalites were greatly outnumbered by young women in that postwar generation. Millions of children were raised by lone, struggling mothers. This situation affected myriad people. It is hard for us to visualize the full extent of this problem as we have not experienced such a vast depletion of men since that time. The carnage of WW ONE was unprecendented and, so far at least, there has been nothing to equal its effects in Western Europe in the annals of modern history. Other men were affected with poisonous gas or lost their limbs in the constant artillery pummelling and could never function as healthy human beings again. This must have also had a serious effect on family life in the postwar years. Some children must have suffered by a degree of evacuation that apparently occurred, or just by the separation from the influence of a father in combat when this occurred during the formative years of children.
Children of World War II greatly suffered from physical and mental problems.. As for physical, obviously, since its a war, it would have been easy to get injured of hurt, but… as for mental, seeing such violence and blood at such a young age could damage your brain with shock and horror that you might go insane.. Also, some children, since all their parents were killed by the war, they had to raise themselves up, and also older kids had to take responsibility for their younger ones..
women worked in the places of where men used to work like in farming ,stoking the fire and so on . old children helped their siblings like looking after the baby and stuff
A: children were given figurines which were intended to encourage them to support the war. they were given English people (or as they called them Tommies) who were strong and …brave, then they gave the children Germans who were cowardly and ugly. many books were also read and mags. card and board games were made to add patriotism to the kids. x-ellaness-x B: They often played Cards. ~Jackson
There were many reasons to why the British Government decided to evacuate Children, all of these essentially in aid of the war effort and because of the threat of being bombed….. Firstly, the war effort demanded not only soldiers for the war front, but workers on the home front, supplying food, ammunition, weapons and other resources required to fight the war. Laborious jobs, and jobs in general, tended to be for men only, this rapidly changed, as most men were either fighting, injured, or dead, women were allowed to work in order to replace them and keep production going, who then were left to look after the children? Children were most likely to get in the way of their parents as they would have to look after them, or be worrying about them. The government did not want capable parents sitting at home caring for their children, they wanted them contributing towards the war effort in any way possible. Having children remain in the cities could potentially have slowed down industrial production, therefore jeopardising the war effort, which was critical considering British soldiers were fighting away on the western front, and supplies needed to reach them rapidly. Evacuating the children was the logical thing to do in order to solve this.. The Safety of the Children was paramount, they were after all the next generation, and so needed to be protected. Having parents worry about the safety of their children was also damaging towards the war effort, they needed to be focused on their jobs. Britain's major cities were ideal targets for bombings, as they were the most populated; most lighted up and therefore easiest to see from the sky, and were the c entre of Industrial production. Leaving the children in them would put them at risk, and so evacuating them to the countryside - an unlikely bombing target - was the rational thing to do. This meant that the children were much safer, and it left their parents and siblings, who would have most likely been working, to carry on doing so, unworried about their children being bombed and having to look after them.. Propaganda was an extremely important part of the war effort, for both the home front and the war front, Radio, Theatres, and Posters such as the " The Hun and Home", and "Daddy what did you do in the Great war?" Were used to raise the morale of workers and soldiers. These posters were essentially used to encourage men to enlist in the army, to protect their families, for pride, and also to encourage workers to work hard. The deaths of their children would certainly contradict these propaganda posters and lower the morale of both the Soldiers, and workers. This would be counterproductive - if soldiers lost their lost their children, what would they have left to fight for? If workers lost their children, what would they have left to work for?
Children mostly ate ready to eat meals, WW1 was also the time of rationing so anything their parents could buy from rations
well let's see it varied from 0-18 generally hmm strange huh
They worked on their own farms and in bakeries, factories, and grocery stores.
Italy was being invaded by Austria-Hungary. Children in the north were sent to Britain for safety's sake.
lots of radiation, babies were killed, and the parents to the babies were killed so they had no parents to take care of the so obviously that babies all died in the end.
