I've heard that family life as well as the life of children was drastically different from what we're used to seeing today. For instance, back in the day, both men and women would usually get married in their teens-early twenties whereas today, we see people get married in their late twenties-early thirties.

What I've read is that children used to not receive as much affection from their parents and corporeal punishment was a major thing for parents to do back in the day. There was also the new concept called "Scientific Parenting"

Moreover, I heard that parents having more than 4-5 children back in the 1910s and 1920s was commonplace even in the cities.

I want to know if any of this is true or not.

Let me know in the comments below.

EDIT: I should've phrased the question better. I meant to ask what family life was like back in 1910s-1920s America and most of Western Europe (U.K, France, Spain, Germany, etc.) Can anyone answer this?
