Some Unconsidered Aspects of Physical Training - Chapter 10 

Here are a couple of interesting things that I came across in my pre-reading of the chapter (read the entire chapter online here). A thought provoking quote, considering the day and age we live in:
"'Ye are your own,' is perhaps the unspoken thought of most young persons––your own, and free to do what you like with your own. Therefore, excess in sports, excess in easy-going pleasure, excess in study, excess in desultory reading, excess of carelessness in regard to health, any excess that we have a mind to, is lawful to us if only it is expedient. This loose morality with regard to our physical debts, without touching actual vice, which is probably on the decline, is the reason why the world does not get all that it should out of such splendid material."     Charlotte Mason, v3 p103
A list of pertinent ideas to think over (read the entire chapter online here):

  • Greek games and Greek heroes.
  • How a child may be trained to his physical responsibilities.
  • The vocation of the body.
  • 'Innocent' excesses.
  • Unlawful and lawful home discipline.
  • The heroic impulse.
  • The training afforded by games.
  • Athletics, their use and abuse.
  • Parental authority in physical matters.
  • The right uses of self-denial.
  • The government, management, and training of the body.
  • The duty of health.

(List quoted from v3 p105)
