  2. Hi brittany lasseigne,
    what do you need help with? There are many points of comparison you could consider jotting down. You could try to talk to grown ups who have lived through the 1800's as children.
    Here's some starting material for you (Please do not copy, this is only to be served as reference material):

    "Children were dressed like little adults and, in fact, treated like adults in that they were (in the lower classes) expected to go to work as early as 5 or 6. They were probably more serious than our children; working in a dangerous factory will knock lots of foolishness out of a child. There was no such thing as a teenager and no cult of children who need to be spoiled and entertained. Girls were often married at 15 or 16 and, in the middle to lower classes, boys were expected to decide at about 10 what trade they wanted to go into, so they could be apprenticed.
    There was no standard or requirement for literacy; the boys in the upper classes were fluent in Latin, Greek, often French, with some Italian. They were heavily versed in the literary classics. Their less fortunate peers went to school when they could and often taught themselves after work.
    Girls in the upper classes were literate and probably knowledgeable in light literature (poetry, novels, etc.) but were discouraged from learning anything more than "feminine accomplishments": playing the pianoforte, drawing, fine needlework.
    Poor girls were lucky to be able to read, but often knew something the "better" girls did not: how to run a household.
    These children were also raised with a greater presence of death. Dying in childbirth was fairly common and, since birth control was illegal and unreliable, childbirth was tough to avoid. It was rare for a mother, of any class, to raise all her children without one fatality."

    Hope I helped! Thanks :)

  3. Sorry, Joshua, but there's almost no one still alive who was born in the 1800s. Someone born in 1898 would be 110 years old.
