“Parents in their highest function – as revealers of God to their children.” Parents’ Review Vol 2 “Parents and Children: Parents as Inspirers” by Charlotte Mason 1891/92 pgs 221-227
In the midst of all our responsibility, it is a great thing to be reminded of our foremost responsibility: to lead our children to God.
The Parents’ Review article goes on to say:
“To bring the human race, family by family, child by child, out of the savage and inhuman desolation where He is not, into the light and warmth and comfort of the presence of God, is, no doubt, the chief thing we have to do in the world.”
This article was truly inspirational. If you’d like to read further, you can find it here.
It includes this great quote by Erasmus:
“The master must not omit to set as an exercise the reproduction of what he has given to the class. It involves time and trouble to the teacher, I know well but it is essential. A literal reproduction of the matter taught is, of course, not required – but the substance of it presented in the pupil’s own way.”
Hope you enjoy the article!
