Nicole Williams interviews Toni Onks, a mother who switched her house of 6 kids to Charlotte Mason. They had originally been following a Classical approach, but over time it felt like the soul of her home had gone missing. The focus had become checklists, tasks, and grading. There was no time spent outdoors and she had become their teacher and not their mother. After finding inspiration in For the Children's Sake, she made the bold move to completely change her approach to homeschooling. Since making the switch, she has noticed a huge improvement in her children and her own relationship with them.
In the podcast, she discusses many of the challenges she faced in making this transition, as well as the rewards of doing so.
