About Us

  • The Life Without School Blog is an on-line publication and blogging community. We homeschool. We unschool. We live our lives without school. For some, life without school begins as a conscientious choice that is whole-heartedly embraced. For others, it begins as a quest for second chances and new opportunity.... Read more about us.

About Our Blogs

  • We support life without school, diversity of perspective, choice, the family and the child. No one blog, not even this LWOS blog, can possibly represent the opinions and lives of all who live life without school. Each blog does, however, in some small way represent one life, one family, once voice, one lifestyle out of many who choose to live life without school.

On Questions

  • The simplest questions are the most profound. Where were you born? Where is your home? Where are you going? What are you doing? Think about these once in awhile, and watch your answers change. -Richard Bach

Questions for Us

  • What are ways you prepare your children to survive in our society economically? How are you sure your children are learning enough; what about holes in your child's education? Read more Questions for Us.

On Perspectives

  • A perspective does not tell me what is right for you. A persective shares a view into what is possibly right for me. No one perspective should hold a human being, especially a child, prisoner to its expectations.

My daughters and I recently went on a walk to take photos. The experience was so different for each of us. For my three year old it was completely about the process. It was so fun to watch her just snap away over 200 photos. For my 9 yr old it was more about the product. She checked out her picture after she took it to make sure it was a keeper or not. She ended up with only 40 photos. This experience was such a great example of process vs. product for me. But I wonder if every next photo shoot will take her more to the product oriented end. Now that we have looked at and talked about the photos she took the first time. Maybe everytime we revisit something a little bit of the process is lost or changed?

I crochet hats. I'm addicted to buying yarns for hats to be made in the future. I love being able to crochet when I sometimes find myself with nothing to do.
When I'm waiting outdoors, I also take pictures.
I never thought of product/process before.

    From the Quote Vault:

    The wave of the future is not the conquest of the world by a single dogmatic creed but the liberation of the diverse energies of free nations and free men.~John F. Kennedy

Editor's Corner

  • It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power. ~Alan Cohen
