If I may interject one more thought on this topic, Charlotte Mason said she believed that one third of education is atmosphere
as she so beautifully stated:

"Ideas are held in that thought environment which surrounds the child as an atmosphere,
in which he breathes in unconscioius ideas of right living emanating from his parents.
Every look of gentleness, and tone of reverence, every word of kindness and act of help,
passes into the thought-environment, the very atmoshphere which the child breathes;
he does not think of these things, may never think of them, but all his life long they
excite that vague appetency (relationship) towards somthing out of which most of his
actions spring.

Food for thought from a women that was ahead of her time!

That is a fantastic thought. :) I pray that I remember those words when I am in the thick of it all. Thanks for that beautiful reminder.
