Of all the elements that make up a Charlotte Mason education, habit training may be the one where there is the biggest gulf between theory and practice. It all sounds so good on paper. Just form some habits in my children and then family life will run on smooth and easy rails off into the sunset. But wait… how exactly do I do that again?

When it comes to the practical side of forming all those wonderful habits, there are a lot of places parents can turn to for tips — or hacks. There are some great new books, some neat testimonials, and some interesting advice floating around. Much of it is helpful, for sure.

René du Plessis is a contemporary homeschooling mother who wanted to bridge that gap between theory and practice. She decided to look an an interesting place for advice: Charlotte Mason’s own writings. There in the volumes she found the hacks she needed — three of them, in fact. And now she’s been kind enough to write them up and record them for us. Tune in to get some help in the form of three habit hacks drawn directly from the Home Education Series. Find it here.
