His wife, Augusta, in fact, had hatred for him considering him useless not worthy of holding down a job, meaning that raising the children was a tall order for him. Augusta accepted the fact that raising the children in accordance with her beliefs as well as ensuring that the family is stable financially was her responsibility (Aggrawal, 2010). Her efforts to ensure that her children are kept off from the evils and immoralities of the city went to an extent that she decided to relocate to the rural areas of the country.

However, her desire to keep her children away from the outside world was not that successful as they needed to go to school. The performance by Eddie in school was not that bad, especially in reading whereby he excelled (Aggrawal, 2010). Nevertheless, we find that his reading of the books of adventure is what had some great stimulation in his imagination, consequently enabling him to transitorily enter his own world. Aggrawal, (2010) asserts that Augusta was determined to protect her children from corrupting the influences of the immoral, godless people that were all over.

However, until her death thirty nine years later, she had complete dominance over her son and this resulted in the development of a serious and strong love-hate connection or bond between son and mother. This kind of relationship perhaps brought about the horrendous personality disorder that led Gein to commit dreadful crimes. As Gein grew up, we find that his mother did not let him have any friends of his own. Any time that he appeared to be trying to make friends or even just coming close to some individuals deemed to be his friends, his mother would ensure that it is brought to an abrupt end by finding fault with the particular individual or even their family, and she was always successful.

Augusta saw evil everywhere besides the fact that it was her responsibility to ensure that her sons were safe and well protected by trying hard to see that they are effectively isolated from the world that she considered wicked.
