    Reading Hamlet with my Daughters: A Guest Post from Silvia Cachia

    May 19, 2014 by Brandy Vencel

    Well, it is sort of a guest post. I am, once again, sending you elsewhere to do some reading. It’ll be worth your while, for sure. One of my goals in this series is to highlight how our own personal study not only enhances our own lives, but results in overflow that is truly beneficial for our children.

    In her post, Silvia touches on her CM journey thus far, what the early years looked like, and some insecurities she faces.

    And she wraps up with some thoughts on Hamlet.

    What’s not to like?

    Here’s a snippet to whet your appetite:

    Charlotte Mason’s talks about Mother Culture, about atmosphere, discipline, life, about children as persons. It all resurfaced in my head in a new light. I “got it”. I had to become that learner myself first and foremost, with no ulterior or hidden motives, just for the profound communion of falling in love with knowledge and restoring that order of affections in me. It had to become my life. And then, my girls will follow, in their time and fashion, and I was not to judge when, how, how much, or what. I was only to gently offer them this feast, lay it at their feet. I was to demand certain attitude, their attention, their trust, and the rest will happen by the force of knowledge, by the love that it all encompasses, because it is in our nature to praise Him, to learn about His created world and man. And this is a perpetual fire that helps you live through burn outs and low times.
