Laying Down the Rails

Oh! Before I go, I've got to tell you about a new resource I just got that I'm TOTALLY excited about. It's called "Laying Down the Rails." It is a huge book from the awsome site Simply Charlotte Mason on habits-training for children. It is a compilation of Charlotte Mason's thoughts and advice on habits-training. It's pricey, and a little overwhelming at first. But an incredible resource. It has already brought fresh ideas and clarity to my parenting. (Goodness knows I need all of that I can get!!)

There is a wonderful categorized checklist at the back for each habit. Even if I don't actually check things off as I go, it helps to organize my wandering thoughts and gives me courage to expect more of my kids - and myself. Ouch.

See what you think: Laying Down the Rails
The mother who takes pains to endow her children with good habits secures for herself smooth and easy days.—Charlotte Mason

Sarah, I'm glad to hear from someone who has this book. I've been debating on whether to purchase it. I believe I shall go ahead and purchase it. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on it.

I love Charlotte Mason. I've been trying to incorporate more of her ideas into our school day. I'll have to check out this book, I have never heard of it. Thanks for another great resource. Every time I read your blog I go away encouraged!

Can't wait to read this book...I'm always looking for a new, good book to read! And a good one on parenting (since I am decidedly, NOT a Pearl fan! lol!)

I found your blog through Julia's. You and I haven't met, but maybe you have heard my name; I get you girls confused, but I, of course, know that you are Mr. W's daughter. Are you next to the oldest? You may know my name from being involved with music and recording via Take One, my brother's studio. (Keith B.)

Anyway, I saw that you listed "The Well Educated Mind" on your list of favorite books; that first got my attention, since I just purchased the book in March. I have used "The Well Trained Mind" and "Story of the World" CDs/books. I value Susan Wise Bauer's input. As I read several of the other items on your blog, I realized we must be kindred spirits! "Laying Down the Rails" sounds like a terrific resource. I read through the sample download and learned something new even from that!

Thanks for the recommendation. I will continue to enjoy your blog as a valuable resource.

I do not create many responses, but i did a few searching and wound up
here "Laying Down the Rails". And I actually
do have a couple of questions for you if it's
allright. Could it be simply me or does it look like a few of the comments come across like
left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting at other online
social sites, I'd like to keep up with anything new you have to post.
Could you make a list of all of all your public sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
