Recently, I read “Smooth and easy days with Charlotte Mason“, a free e-book written by Sonya Shafer and I was encouraged to do more to help my girl develops good habits in her life that may last a lifetime.

Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it. Proverbs 22:6

Now we have to be intentional in building good habits into our daughter’s life which will take many weeks, months and years to inculcate. We need perseverance, oh Lord!

These are the habits listed in the e-book – quite a handful! Take your pick!
