Charlotte Mason for REAL Moms: The Basics

The best way to simplify a complicated subject is to make an outline. The same is true when dealing with something as complicated as The Charlotte Mason Method.

So, in this video we will be discussing the basics in a list format (with some side-stepping for explanation and interest, of course).

Hopefully, this quick list will give you a good overview. In the next videos we will be taking each of these items and delving more deeply, with loads of practical ideas and perhaps even a few “visual aids” and physical examples.

Enjoy!

  1. Hi sherry! I am a young mama of soon to be 6 kids under 7, and probably more to come. I find so much encouragement and practical help from your blog, and am just so thankful for your willingness to share and be used of God.

    However, I do have some specific questions regarding babies, pregnancy, parenting with lots of littles that I don’t see answered on your blog, and certainly don’t find in real life, as I’m pretty much the odd one out in my circle, when it comes to having children. Is there a way I can email you these questions, or perhaps post them here, so you can look at them and possibly give me some answers?

    Thank you so much for your time!

    • Thank you for taking the time to comment, Joanna! If you look on my blog you will find a place called “contact.” I do check the messages left for me there and try to answer any questions in a timely manner. If your questions will take extensive answers, I will try and answer them in a video post so that other moms may benefit (with your personal information removed, of course).

  2. Your blog has been so helpful to me! Thank you so much for all your work sharing these things! You have pointed me to Christ, given practical tips and encouraged me so much! I am a mom of 7 and have homeschooled for 11 years and have one just starting Kindergarten, so we still have many years ahead, Lord willing!

    • That’s a great question, Jeanette! I have been teaching math for so long that I use parts of this and parts of that. I have come to the conclusion that math is sort of like everything else in childhood education; give children the tools and then allow them to branch out as they prefer. Some time (when real life slows down) I will be able to devote some extra thought into helping other moms narrow and simplify to demystify math. I’ll try and repost some of my former thoughts on this subject to see if it helps.
