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.

Hot Topics

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.

Sounds like he learned more from watching movies than I did from two years of formal study. That's awesome! But I'm with you on the Spiderman thing, that could be nerve-wracking :)

Jackie Chan :-)

You mean, Rowan hasn't yet tried the Superman stints? What a loss! :-)...


Yeah - I'd be scared of Spiderman and a few others - if only because my mom was once babysitting a young cousin who had just watched "Peter Pan". Cousin disappeared into the bathroom, and roused by the "it's been too quiet in there for too long" mom-alarm - my mom went into the bathroom to find cousin vigorously shaking "Comet" cleanser everywhere (it's pixie dust, dontcha know - I mean, c'mon, it IS called COMET for corn sake ;-) and repeatedly jumping off the toilet saying "I can FLY! I can FLY!" Hee.

I love Jackie Chan, and Drunken Master is my absolute favorite... although, I really like the destruction scene in The Tuxedo, also. hehe.


Ah! What a great story! I was introduced to Jackie Chan by my husband - and now we're all fans! :)

    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
