Did children have to work as well (CH)?
People in prehistory did not get very old, meaning one had to grow up much earlier. There was less time to remain a child than nowadays. Besides this, life was very hard. The complete family, the children as well had to help out to ensure. There were no schools as we know them, meaning as soon as it was physically possible, children were engaged into the working world. In spite of this all, children surely found time to play.
Die Menschen in der Urzeit wurden nicht sehr alt, d.h. man musste viel früher erwachsen werden. Es blieb also weniger Zeit Kind zu bleiben als heute. Zudem war das Leben sehr hart. Die ganze Familie, auch die Kinder mussten mithelfen, um das Überleben zu sichern. Da es auch keine Schulen in unserem Sinne gab, wurden die Kinder, sobald es körperlich möglich war, in die Arbeitswelt aufgenommen. Trotzdem hatten die Kinder sicher auch Zeit zum Spielen.
