4.0 out of 5 stars This will be an important part of the education of the future
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on May 6, 2019
Don't be put off this book, nor CM education philosophy, by the strong Christian basis. As an atheist, I've found a wealth of information in this book which is a personal review of CM and how it has worked for the author and her communities. It covers the major principles of CM as a whole in review (it is not a curriculum). I've found Waldorf education lacking in some aspects which CM has the answers to- Waldorf too airy fairy for you? CM offers the practical real life living education that works in a family. I devoured this book in a couple of nights and it has really crystallised 'how' I want to present an education and what I want to include (a distinct lack of fairies and gnomes for instance). A great book for HE families but also those with children in school- if parenting is strong at home then you can balance the negative effects from schools. Highly recommend for all parents.
