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.

Wow. You just described my life in jr. and sr. high. I was interested in art and music and foreign language but had to "choose" which one I would pursue. I was "encouraged" by my family to pursue music since I was so talented, but my true love was art. Here I am a 45yo homeschooling mom who has been discovering that it is OK to enjoy gourmet cooking and art and foreign cultures. My husband and I often wonder what we would have accomplished if we had been homeschooled. He is a musician and computer programmer.

I don't like Disney movies on the whole either, but when I watched this with my kids, I felt the exact same way. Why can't you be both a star basketball player and a singer? or baker?

It was inspiring to me. My girls love the music and dancing and were so excited when I bought it for them.

By the way, we are unschoolers too!

    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
