We Should Take Into Account the Educational Value of His/Her Natural Home Atmosphere

“By the saying, EDUCATION IS AN ATMOSPHERE, it is not meant that a child should be isolated in what may be called a ‘child environment,’ especially adapted and prepared; but that we should take into account the educational value of his natural home atmosphere, both as regards persons and things, and should let him live freely among his proper conditions. It stultifies a child to bring down his world to the ‘child’s’ level.” (Home Education by Charlotte M. Mason Vol. 5, preface pp. 5-6)
