Any young women who couldn’t bear children were seen as cursed by the gods.
As in many ancient cultures and some modern cultures as well, boys were favored over girls.
Babies were wrapped up in tight clothing until the age of two years old since it was believed that this is how children’s bones would stay strong and straight.
Both brothers and sisters played with their mother in the Gynaikon until they were about seven years old.
There weren’t any words in the language of the ancient Greeks that had the same meaning as the word “family.” The closest word to family is the word “oikos,” which means household.
Oikos means everything that is domestic and includes slaves and servants as well as the members of the family and their household items. All the women of the household would be present to ensure the labor was smooth and there may have been a female midwife as well.
The women and children generally lived upstairs in the women’s quarters, called the Gynaikon or Gynaikonitis.
Girls were educated at home by their mothers but they were not usually taught to read and write.
Their education consisted of how to take care of children and a home.
If a family had multiple daughters, it could get expensive since each daughter would have to begin her marriage with a dowry.
The dowry was property or money that was given to her husband upon their marriage.
