Charlotte Mason


I have been reading, A Charlotte Mason Education and wanted to share this...

The Children's motto is "I am, I can, I ought, I will." Charlotte Mason chose this in 1891, She says every child can say "I am" because they are a child of God, a gift to their parents. " I can" stands for having the power God has given to us to do a thing. "I ought" has to do with duty. "I will" is different from I want. It is the child's decision to what is right.

The motto for the parents/educators is "Education is an atmosphere, a discipline, a life."
