Reviews - What do our customers think?
wonderful thought provoking book  Aug 13, 2007
This book put into words what I could not express adequetly. It is a great book if your child is struggling and you want to know what you can do to help him/her. (It's not another worksheet that's going to help!) It was refreshing to read about the priority we parents should place on educating and loving the persons we are priviledged to call sons or daughters. They are indeed more than pocessions! Great book!
For your kids' sake, read this book first.  Jun 2, 2007
This book is #1 for all parents of school and pre-school age children, especially if you are even remotely considering education options outside of the public school system. There are hundreds of books on the subject out there. Read this one first.
Good guide  Jan 10, 2007
this gives a great outlook on how we should view our children. It also gives a great overview of the Charlotte Mason method.
Education of Children  Nov 6, 2006
I liked this book and would recommend it to others thinking of home schooling. I would not consider it "light" reading. It is thought provoking and took me sometime to complete even though it is not a long book. Read the book with open eyes and an open heart regarding the education of your children.
A Favorite Book of Mine  Jul 23, 2006
This book was worth my time this Sunday morning to sit here and write a review on it. I have my dog-eared copy on my bedside bookshelf, where only the most loved or currently read books may reside. This book falls into both categories.

Last night I picked up the book to read a snippet before falling asleep. I just let the book open where it may and it opened right where I needed it -- on a page that explains how a mother might discipline her unmotivated (lazy?) child without demeaning him. She should encourage him, saying, "I know you can do this. You did ___." (and there she gives an example of a time when he did something to completion).

As another reviewer mentioned, this book is not a book for only homeschoolers. It is written for teachers and for parents.

Some quotes that I underlined in my copy:

"Excellence is a habit." pg. 37

"The adult, whether teacher or parent, has to be able to enjoy and understand what he or she is reading with the children." pg. 39

"In the Bible, the result of wrongdoing was usually related to the offense." pg. 45

"If you expect what is good, and are not shocked by the reality of the faltering footsteps toward it, you will be well on the way to leading." pg. 51

"Children obey best when their lives are as fully satisfying as possible. If minds are interested, skills are being learned, loving relationships are enjoyed, creativity is encouraged, beauty in art, nature, and music are appreciated, hours are spent in free play - why these children will be well on their way to having their sinful natures put in the back seat!" pg. 55

(she goes on to say why -- it's because "sinful natures expand like a malignancy with boredom, loneliness, passivity, tiredness, etc.")

"Our first concern is to open the door to the knowledge of God." pg. 92
