On Habit

Of course, our study of Character Traits will bring us quite naturally to Habit ... we pray.

This is an interesting quote from Charlotte Mason regarding Habit (and just to note, she has MUCH more to say regarding habit, so this quote is just a tiny tidbit. Please read her books, available online for free or they can be purchased.)

“...the education of habit is successful in so far as it enables the mother to let her children alone, not teasing them with perpetual commands and directions - a running fire of Do and Don’t ; but letting them go their own way and grow, having first secured that they will go the right way and grow to fruitful purpose.”
