As always, we welcome any Charlotte Mason inspired blog posts! Bloggers vary widely in their gifts and experiences, which means, we can all learn from each other. We hope you'll share with us! You might even consider submitting the link for someone else's CM blog post you've run across and been encouraged by as well.
Below, you will find an optional topic, a thought provoking quote or two and several ideas for those who need a little writing prompt or who would like some direction for further study. :)
The optional topic for discussion during the month of March is:
Some Unconsidered Aspects of Moral Training - Chapter 12
Here are a couple of interesting things that I came across in my pre-reading of the chapter. There are many more potentially interesting ideas there as well. I'd encourage you to read the entire chapter online here.
A couple of thought provoking quotes and questions:
“Morals do not come by Nature. - No doubt every child is born with a conscience, that is, with a sense that he ought to choose the right and refuse wrong; but he is not born with the power to discern good and evil. An educated conscience is a far rarer possession than we imagine...” v3 p130
“It may be said that we neglect all additional ethical teaching because we have the Bible; but how far and how do we use it?” v3 p133
“A child's whole notion of religion is “being good.” v3 p136
To read these quotes and questions in their proper context and ponder over what Charlotte was getting at, read Ch 12 of School Education in its entirety here.
