A Charlotte Mason Moment

“The habits of the child produce the character of the man, because certain mental habitudes once set up, their nature is to go on forever unless they should be displaced by other habits. Here is an end to the easy philosophy of, ‘It doesn’t matter,’  ‘Oh, he’ll grow out of it,’  ‘He’ll know better by-and-by,’  ‘He’s so young, what can we expect?’ and so on. Every day, every hour, the parents are either passively or actively forming those habits in their children upon which, more than upon anything else, future character and conduct depend.” (Home Education by Charlotte M. Mason Vol. 1, p. 118)
