“The great educator Charlotte Mason says that when we put children in direct contact with great ideas and get out of the way, “Teachers shall teach less and scholars shall learn more.” Any homeschooling parent who has observed her own children for any length of time will know this to be true. Real learning happens when our children wrestle directly with great ideas- not as a result of our repackaging those great ideas, but when they interact with the ideas themselves.”

Children’s Book Reviews
“We can best help children learn, not by deciding what we think they should learn and thinking of ingenious ways to teach it to them, but by making the world, as far as we can, accessible to them, paying serious attention to what they do, answering their questions — if they have any — and helping them explore the things they are most interested in.”
“The key to a successful education is not remembering the sequence of battles in World War I or getting an A on the geometry test. A robust education is the ability to make meaningful use of any and all information.”
Hello ! My name is Eva and I am a Bulgarian Muslim homeschooling mum of 5 children. We live in the South West of England, together with my husband and not to forget my Burmese cat ( Bagira aka my sixth child). Most of the time , I am sleep deprived, so coffee truly is one of my best friends. I am also a big Parenting Book “junkie “, so you will definitely find something on here related to this, whether it’s gentle discipline or siblings rivalry.
