Working, Homeschooling, Single Parenting and Why Charlotte Mason is the Perfect Fit
Are you a working mom, single parent, parent of multiples, or perhaps all of the above, and feeling completely overwhelmed by the sheer preparation and work homeschooling requires?
Fear not. In this workshop, we will discuss how the Charlotte Mason philosophy can completely change your perspective, transform your homeschool, and help you rest in knowing your children are capable of doing the job of learning on their own.
“The children, not the teachers, are the responsible persons; they do the work by self-effort. The teachers give sympathy and occasionally elucidate, sum up or enlarge, but the actual work is done by the scholars.”
– A Philosophy of Education, p. 6
Following her philosophy of self-effort, self-education and a broad, diverse curriculum that encourages them to explore new subjects and ideas. Learning becomes the desire and responsibility of the learner, and takes much off the pressure off the teacher.
Honoring the Child as a Person: How to Promote Vital Growth and Movement of a Living Being
There is a difference between catering to our children’s needs and respecting their personhood. In Volume 1, Charlotte Mason said:
“A parent may be willing to undergo any definite labours for his child’s sake; but to be always catering for his behoof, always contriving that circumstances shall play upon him for his good, is the part of a god and not of a man!”
In this session, we will discuss how the first three of Charlotte Mason’s 20 Principles, play a huge role on the development of living beings we have been called to raise in this current age of oversensitivity.

How To Set-Up A Charlotte Mason Co-Op
Many of us have kids that thrive in learning along with a group of peers, and a homeschool co-op would not just benefit the kids, but YOU as well! But what do you do when your community doesn’t have an established homeschool co-op?
In this session you’ll get the tools you need to get started.
How To Do All-The-Things The Charlotte Mason Way
Doing all-the-things isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, but it’s something we moms try to do anyway. We take care of the kids, the laundry, the dishes, the bills. We aim to please our families, and stay in good standing with the boss. We want to work hard for our clients, and serve well in all our ministries.
It’s no different when it comes to homeschooling. Especially if you have a type-A personality like I do. More tasks to complete, more boxes to check. Then you throw in what Mason called the Feast of Subjects, and you’re in real trouble.
In this workshop we’ll discuss why doing everything is just not an option and how we can do less without cheating ourselves and our children.
Planning Your Year in 4 Simple Steps
Planning your year incorporating the vast feast of subjects can be intimidating. In this workshop you’ll learn how to plan without becoming overwhelmed, how to easily follow and adjust your plan, and how to create opportunities for self-guided exploration.
FOSTERING A CHARLOTTE MASON COMMUNITY
Miss Mason said: “All other bodies of workers, whether of hand or brain, enjoy the help and profit of association; commonly, of cooperation. Thus the wisdom, the experience, the information of each is made profitable for all; enthusiasm is generated by the union of many for the advance of a cause, and every member is cheered by the sympathy of his fellow workers.” –
Charlotte Mason understood the importance of community, not only for the child, but for the parent as well.
In this workshop, you’ll be encouraged to join and even lead real-life Charlotte Mason communities in your area, because true connections are crucial for your parental support and development, as much as they are for your children.
