Happy 4th Anniversary to Do Life Right, Inc. Publishing!

This is when we transformed Do Life Right, Inc. into a full-fledged publishing company! What an exciting time! I am so very, very proud of all […]

The Educational Spectrum–VIDEO

When explaining the core differences between various types of education, I wanted a physical representation of them. I wanted to show how they related to each other, so that it would be visually easy to decide what type would work for different families. Since nothing like that existed, I created my Educational Spectrum. I talk […]

“Wright on Time” is Right on Time!–VIDEO

I love-love-love my Wright on Time series of children’s chapter books. After spending years trying to find kid fiction for my older daughter that she fully approved of (without much luck!), she brilliantly suggested that I write the perfect chapter book series. Here is a video of me talking about that process: This video was […]

Rules vs. Principles–VIDEO

One of my favorite things to talk about is Unschooling. I feel that it is the single most life-changing decision that I’ve ever made. Becoming an unschooling family has broadened my life in more ways than I could ever say. Because of this, I speak at homeschooing and unschooling conferences. I love sharing my experiences […]

Multiple Intelligences Simplified–VIDEO

In describing what Unschooling is to a non-homeschooling person, the first misconception that I usually hear is something along the lines of, “But… People learn best in school. Why would you not want your kids to be where people learn best?” To me, and all Unschoolers, school is not the best place for any person […]

Yesterday on TODAY

As many of you know by now, my family was on The Today Show yesterday, October 14, 2011. Many people have sent me private and public messages about our appearance. Some sent congratulatory messages, some wonder what kind of feedback we’re getting, some want to know our thoughts about the segment, some want our advice […]

The Socialization Myth and Teens

Quick:  Name a high school teen movie. Doesn’t matter when it was made. Okay, now name another, and another–again, it doesn’t matter when they were made. Now, what do they all have in common? Yes, they all have striking similarities, don’t they? The popular kids exist in them, being mean to the rest of the […]

Sunset Crater, Flagstaff, Arizona

Just north of Flagstaff, AZ, lies Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument. Yes, there is a real volcano (actually a bunch of volcanos) in Arizona. Here are a few photos of us (mostly on Lenox Crater, as the public isn’t allowed to climb Sunset Crater anymore):
