We are Aussie, Kiwi, New Guinea and nearby region families, using Charlotte Mason-inspired, living books, literature-rich, 'wholehearted child', and 'lifestyle of learning' approaches.
Some of us are more eclectic in approach than others, and if you are after a "pure" CM approach, you might be more comfortable on some other lists such as CMason,Ambleside,or CMSeries. However, if you love living books and use some of CM's ideas in education, or are trying to create a lifestyle of learning, and want to share experiences and resources relevant to our home surroundings, you'll probably be comfortable here. We try as much as possible to keep "on topic" - if you consider CM methods, a lifestyle of learning, and living books to be the "heart" of our email discussions, it will help in that direction!
Please note that this list has no affiliation to a particular religion. However, as many Christian homeschoolers use a CM or living books approach, this may be reflected in some posts. On the other hand, we understand that families who do not homeschool for religious reasons, also find such approaches beneficial. We ask for tolerance from all, and note that there is absolutely NO room for theological debate on this list.
ALSO PLEASE NOTE that posts and files remain the property of the CMandFriends group and must not be forwarded from the list, posted on the internet, or used in any public manner. We try hard to protect members' privacy and group projects, and ask that this is strictly respected.
We look forward to having you join us!
