Life Without School is collecting stories on “Why we homeschool.”

Life Without School, LWOS, ( www.lifewithoutschool.typepad.com ) is collecting stories on “Why We Homeschool.” We would love to hear your stories about why you homeschool. How does homeschooling benefit your children, your family, you as a parent. We are interested in all stories that celebrate finding your own way with your child(ren) and that are personally real and non-judgmental in nature as possible.

The stories do not need to be of length; in fact, a paragraph will work best for this project. A collection of personal vignettes will be used to create a web page called Real Stories: Real Lives:

Send your story (short vignette) and name as you would like to see it in print(or specify anonymous) to:

editor-lwos@comcast.net

(questions welcomed)
