Were the daily lives of Roman children just as it is described in books? The boys, as they neared adolescency, had to be brought to school by a paedogogue, thanks to men in the streets with obsessions for boys, and girls sometimes went to public schools, but they were usually taught at home by a tutor, as were some boys. Poor children really couldn't look forward to an education like this.
Children were not allowed to be lazy or slothful. They exercised in the gymnasium, read books, and tried to please their elders. Most of all, they imitated their parents and other older peers.
Children were thought to be a blessing, but don't you think they were sometimes ignored?
It probably wouldn't be much fun to be a Roman child, would it?
