After the Roaring Twenties, there was a horrific downturn which caused "The Great Depression". The unemployment rate raised and many had to sell their homes or what ever they had owned in order to get money to survive. The farming children suffered many diseases due to the of lack of food and other nutrients. The farmer families tried to keep life as normal as possible. These families would devise strategies to adopt a lower standard of living. making ends meet involved cover-cutting, "making do" and keeping up appearances. To cut corners, clothing could be sewn at home. To make do, a pot roast could be stretched to last in several creative meals.

For an example, the farmers in the 1920's weren't successful because of the huge impact that he World war I made which had cause overproduction. The supply was more of it demand and wasn't healthy for the soil because the soil needs nutrients ignorer for the crops to grow. In the 1930's they problem had worsend that affected their way of life. The farmers had little rainfall which later impacted the crop which then caused crop failure. Farmers had experienced crop failure because of then fact that they had to plant hoping that they can make money to pay back their credits ignorer to survive.
