How would you describe family life as a child?

They didn't have hospital facilities and so on, everyone was born at home. The eldest, whoever was the eldest would look after the younger ones until they got to an age where they could actually go and work for themselves. Mother made all the food, the eldest went, the ones that were old enough went to work and all the other smaller children would be looked after at home either by the mother or the next oldest adult/child.
