Isn’t nice to see that Roman parents had the same problems as us? Although, I would hate it if anyone ever described me as pushy.
Don’t you ever wonder which children had/have the best childhood. Is it the Roman child who did not have the ‘luxury’ of an x-box but was taught literature, taught to question and discuss or is it the child of today who has freedom but prefers the quick fix of a video game to a good book?
However, I did find it funny – and sad – to read of the Roman difficulties when it came to contraception.
