The Sacredness of Personality
.
“These principles are limited by the respect due to the personality of children, which must not be encroached upon whether by the direct use of fear or love, suggestion or influence, or by undue play upon any one natural desire.” Vol. 6, p.80

Become like children.
.
|| Have we considered that in the Divine estimate the child's estate is higher than ours; that it is ours to "become as little children," rather than theirs become as grown men and women... || Charlotte Mason
.
We often complicate things, but as it is written, "Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children..."

"If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world." - C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

Reading and Learning Along
.
|| I think part of the reason why Charlotte Mason works is because an Idea-packed feast not only nourishes the student but the Parent-Educator as well. Teachers are not meant to “teach” in a CM education, but present. And because of this, we learn along with our students instead of being the source of knowledge. That simply changes everything. The excitement from learning is seen in our eyes and heard in our voices, and that is an atmosphere that does wonders in a child’s learning environment. ||

Nth time around with this book. This time with bunso and my niece 👧🏻👧🏻 I have never looked at a mud wasp the same way since I read this years ago 💚
.
I think it is the perfect introductory book for natural history. Gentle yet engaging for The Early Years.
.
This reprint from the 1895 edition is available at OurLivingLearning Shop (Temporary link up in profile ⬆️ ) or at The Learning Basket ☺️
Into the woods.
.
6km of nature, mud, and a bit of rain. Quite proud that the kids only started whining tail end of the hike 👊🏻

'Thinking Love' --
.
|| God has given to the child all the faculties of our nature, but the grand point remains undecided — how shall this heart, this head, these hands be employed? to whose service shall they be dedicated? A question the answer to which involves a futurity of happiness or misery to a life so dear to thee. Maternal love is the first agent in education. ||
