Join Cindy and David as they chat about Charlotte Mason's belief that "children are born persons," focusing, in particular, on the idea that children are not things to be "molded" or "shaped." How does literature and the way that great stories form the moral imagination play into this concept? What about discipline? Would Vigen Guroian's classic book, Tending the Heart of Virtue jive with Mason's ideas? And much more!
