We believe the evening hours should be a time when the family gently unwinds from the events of the day, not an occasion of tears, stress, or tension. Consequently, following Charlotte Mason’s lead, we do not assign homework.
If there is a genuine need for a child to do additional work at home, we believe:
- It should first be agreed upon with the parent.
- The work should be tailored to the academic need of the child.
- It should be carried out under the discretion of the parent. Only the parent knows what can be peacefully accomplished on a given night.
