AfterCast: An Audio Companion for the Classical, Charlotte Mason Mama

For many years now, Afterthoughts has been a sort of intellectual watering hole for all of you classical, Charlotte Mason homeschooling mamas out there – I like to call you Afterthinkers. You are thinking people – idea people – who never let a good book go to waste. You keep yourselves intellectually agile by reading books, often old books, seeking out the best that has been thought and said, and mixing it into your everyday lives of laundry and dishes and dinner and long division. At Afterthoughts, we have spent over a decade nourishing our minds on theology, educational philosophy, and a million other books and subjects thrown in – all the while bringing these ideas into a direct collision course with our daily lives. Because what good is an idea if we don’t use it – live it, breathe it? As an audio companion, this podcast is a chance to hear Afterthoughts blog posts rather than read them. Couple that with some bonus content focused on books and interviews, and you’ve got AfterCast.

In today’s episode, I have a bit of debate with a chapter in Clark and Jain’s book, The Liberal Arts Tradition. I love what they said in terms of philosophy, but I don’t think they took the practical implementation of their philosophy nearly far enough. I tried to provide what I think is a helpful push in the right direction.

If you feel like you’re messing up your Charlotte Mason homeschool, the first thing you need to know is that you’re not alone. Returning to our basic principles – and remembering that principles and practices are not always the same thing – can help us focus on what matters most.

Homeschooling has a lot of side-benefits, as you probably know. These benefits aren’t reasons to homeschool, but they are good things nonetheless. We could talk about how children are able to get more sleep or have more free time. But are these the BEST kept secret? Nope. The best kept secret benefits US – the teachers – not the children. What is it? Keep listening and you’ll find out.
