An Atmosphere, a Discipline, a Life

We know well that "Education is an atmosphere, a discipline, a life." In other words, we know that parents and teachers should know how to make sensible use of a child's circumstances (atmosphere) to forward his sound education; should train him in the discipline of the habits of the good life; and should nourish his life with ideas, the food upon which personality waxes strong.
Charlotte Mason, Volume 3, p. 182

This sums up what we are called upon to do.
