    Life was probaly hard for the men and children because they had to be trained to be a warrior. the women probaly had a good life they were stay at home moms and had to take care of there children and train for they olympics.

    I bet living in Sparta would be awesome.You'd fight alot,everyone would be occupied all the time,the kids got training,if they were strong.This civilization could kick the Athenians butts.There hardcore.Even people of the non civilazation,would be entertained.

    Life in Sparta was probably hard, the reason it was probably hard was the children was took at the age of 7 to be trained for war but they was returned at 15. The men had to stay home, the women had to hunt, train to fight,  and keep food on the table.

    Life in Sparta was uncivilized. Their whole world revolved around fighting and war. Men who were citizens were at the top of the food chain. They ruled Sparta. Women who were citizens had rights and were treated almost as an equal. They were expected to provide food and hunt just as a man. They were not educated. Spartan children were taken from their parents at age 7 to begin training to be a solider. Non citizens and slaves were not treated very kindly.

    I'd have to say life in Sparta was hard for everyone, especially for the children. I mean, could you imagine growing up and never seeing your parents until you were fifteen. Not to mention that the treatment of slaves was terrible, though only plus side to thier civilization was the almost equal treatment of women.
