Friday Talks with Donna

Now you can listen to the series of free talks Donna recorded on her old facebook group. Each talk is about 20 minutes long – please remember that the point of FB talks is their informality and spontaneity -and that the audio quality is quite rough due to use of a laptop’s camera/mic which is not very clear! Click on a title to play it.

  • Food

    Here I speak a little about food and mealtime as the  heart of the family, as the place where children come into  the social realm and where all the most important life lessons–sharing, waiting one’s turn, listening and speaking, gratitude–find their expression.

    The kitchen is an important part of any homeschooler’s life and features throughout the Christopherus curriculum as a place where many lessons unfold, from early years through the grades–and beyond!

  • No Computers for Children
