A Charlotte Mason Moment

A Firm Home Rule

“Firmness on the mother’s part in enforcing promptness in the taking off and putting on of outdoor clothes, etc., and punctuality at meals, and in not allowing one occupation to overlap another, secures many a half-hour of pleasant leisure for the young people, and has the double advantage of also making them feel themselves under a firm home rule.” (Home Education by Charlotte M. Mason Vol. 5, pp. 195-196)

    That is so true, but so hard sometimes!!! A really good reminder.

    1. Meg, you are right – such a good reminder! I needed to be reminded of this today!
