Jeanette said,“One night when I was almost ten, I was awakened by someone running his hands over my private parts,” (Walls 103). The actions of her parents cause Jeannette’s trust in her parents to deteriorate. According to The Future of Children, poverty has many physical effects, but mental effects play a larger role in the lifestyle of a person. Jeanne Brooks-Gunn states, “Emotional outcomes are often grouped along two dimensions: externalizing behaviors including aggression, fighting, and acting out, and internalizing behaviors such as anxiety, social withdrawal, and depression” (Brooks-Gunn 62).

Many families, particularly low income families, need to work in order to feed their family, as a result, they leave their child home alone, or pick them up late from school.

On the other hand, if the child is living in a abusive or violent household it can have a huge psychological impact on the child. In the article titled "Youth Violence: Do Parents and Families Make a Difference?"

When the parents lost their jobs the responsibility the parent once held was put on the children of the families to contribute to the income of the home. Because of this in the great depression “two-fifths of children were employed in part time jobs” (Elder 65). In Glen Elder’s book Children of the Great Depression: Social Change in Life Experience he discusses how the depression affected those children in their later lives.
Tragedy can spread. In Death of a Salesman, Willy Loman is the protagonist, however he not the only person in the play who’s story ends tragically. His view on life spreads to those close to him.

Throughout the play, the Loman family evolves differently.
While his leg is being reset for the second time, some of his bone marrow seeps into his bloodstream, leading to his demise (Knowles). As many adolescents know, death is not an easy experience, and many will deal with the hard occurrence at some point in their process of growing up. Decease is a difficult tribulation, but especially during adolescent years and when the person has a close relationship with the deceased. For example, Phineas is Gene’s best friend through the novel, so it is an awful adolescence experience for Gene to watch his best friend pass on because of the break he causes in the first place. Gene becomes very upset when he learns about the death of his friend, and it takes him a long time to overcome the adolescent tribulation of death, as it is emotionally scarring.
