ABOUT

This website is dedicated to the educational philosophies of Charlotte Mason, a British educator from the last century.  Her methods and philosophies have recently experienced a resurgence, especially among American homeschooling families. Mason’s emphasis on children developing a lifetime love of learning was in stark contrast to the nearly anti-child climate of her time period.

The mission of A Charlotte Mason Home is to bring Charlotte Mason’s ideals and methods to modern families. Believing that Mason’s teachings are timeless, we’re not afraid to move those ideas out of the past into the modern age. While we enjoy Victorian decor as much as the next person, we believe Charlotte Mason would’ve made use of every modern convenience, development and scientific method available. She was considered a bit avant garde in her day … and surely would’ve today, as well.

Articles on this site — unless otherwise noted — are written by Deborah Taylor-Hough. Debi was the long-time editor of The Charlotte Mason Monthly eNewsletter and is the author of several popular books including Frugal Living for Dummies and the bestselling Frozen Assets cookbook series.

  1. Our family is moving to Washington State in July, we’re homeschoolers in NV. How difficult is it to teach Charlotte Mason in WA? I’ve read all the laws, etc. I need help with a starting point!

  5. Hi Ladies! I wanted to let you know how thankful I am for your site. I visit often and always find something I can use. I highlighted you two, and your site on my blog today in a post about bloggers I’m thankful for. So, THANK YOU!

    • Hi, Mary! Thanks so much for the kind posting on your blog. I think it’s important to express gratitude … it’s such a blessing to both parties (the one giving and the one receiving). 🙂 ~Debi

  6. Good Morning!

    I am also amazed to find sites like yours is out here, I love the concept of learning through literature! I was surprised to hear about the Charlotte Mason method of homeschooling, I have been homeschooling my boys for 3+ years now. And I am always looking for new and more natural ways to teach them.

    I also have a site that I was hoping that you could add to your resource page, it is called HomeschoolLiterature.com. HomeschoolLiterature.com is a website/blog for homeschoolers ABOUT homeschoolers. It focuses on children’s fiction with homeschoolers as the protagonist or at least in key roles in the story. Not only are there reviews of each of these books, but many of the pages include lessons plans and teaching supplements for creating a whole teaching “unit” out of the literature. In addition to the books and teaching resources, the site also includes author interviews and information about books written BY homeschoolers, too.

    HomeschoolLiterature.com – literature about homeschoolers.
    Just because I started out as an “accidental homeschooler”, doesn’t mean I stayed that way!

So, what do you think?
