Description: The Abnormal Personality Development And Life Span Of Adolph Hitler
Covering his childhood and environmental climate and upbringing to his demise and Death.

Adolph Hitler suffered psychological distress partly brought on by an unhappy childhood. His father was a domineering and cruel man, and his mother was an over indulgent mother. Hitler regarded woman for man's downfall and he condemned them for their disloyalty. This attitude is probably the outcome of his early experiences with his mother who seduced him into a love relationship.

In secondary school he only completed three years; he had to repeat two of the years twice. He was then expelled and he eventually dropped out of school altogether at the age of 16, I think Hitler did so poorly in school because of his family life. He was a confused child and did not know whether to love his mother or be in love with his mother. (Stokes, 2004).

The outcome of these early experiences probably left him feeling very much alone in a hostile world. Hitler hated his father for the beatings that he used to endure as a child; because of his confusion with his mother he distrusted her and probably thought of himself to be a week man. When his father and mother both passed away Hitler was left with no relatives willing or able to care for him at the age of 19 . (Stokes, 2004).
