Have you been looking for a group of like-minded home schooling parents using Charlotte Mason's home schooling philosophy in a secular manner? Welcome.
This list is is for those of us who would like to discuss and share ideas for using Charlotte Mason's ideas secularly, whether or not our home schooling is faith-based. Topics might include adapting the information found on the Ambleside Online website, finding "living books" on particular subjects, or including some aspects of the Charlotte Mason philosophy in another type of home schooling (say, unschooling or WTM).
We have no expectations that you are of any particular faith, or any faith at all, nor that you have read (and digested) in full the collected and/or abridged and/or modernized works of Charlotte Mason; dabblers and dilettantes are welcomed and encouraged. We do, however, expect tolerance, respect, civility, a general open-mindedness, a genial sense of humor, and a willingness to share information and resources (especially whenever you hear of twaddle-free literature on sale).
WE ALSO EXPECT that everyone here will abide by the accepted rules of etiquette and netiquette, which include NO FLAMING and NO HARVESTING OF EMAILS. Those who break these rules WILL BE REMOVED from the list forthwith.
