The April Q&A episode discusses the usual variety of questions: Did
Charlotte Mason use textbooks? Is her parenting advice valid? How
can we get more rest? Plus, strategies for lesson planning.
"Education, said Charlotte Mason, is an "atmosphere, a discipline, and a life." Habit formation, the discipline, is fundamental to our function as persons. Miss Mason offers descriptions of habit formation as well as counsel on habit training. Emily, Liz, and Nicole discuss the essentials for building those habits that make for "the good life."
It is not an exaggeration to say that understanding the ideas in this Charlotte Mason podcast is the most important piece of knowledge you can gain as a teacher and parent. Liz, Emily, and Nicole focus on Miss Mason's use of method rather than system in education. It is a way of seeing the child, his education, and discipleship that brings life rather than fixed results.
