Daily Life

Daily life is the sum of efforts by family members settled in one place, in order to survive by mutually fulfilling their responsibilities.

Daily life in Anatolia concerns one fixed period, beginning with the rising of the sun and continuing till sunset.

Within this period, the duties of parents and children were shaped by conformity, customs, traditions and conventions that are the legacies of former times. On the other hand, due to changes in social and economic conditions, we can observe some changes in the way individuals carry out their duties, even if their contents stay the same.
