The Charlotte Mason method is based on Charlotte’s firm belief that the child is a person and we must educate that whole person, not just his mind.
Charlotte Mason's Student Motto:
"I am, I can, I ought, I will."
"I am, I can, I ought, I will." This was the motto she gave us.

Franklin, one of Charlotte Mason's students
