Los Angeles: After years of homeschooling, 'King of Pop' Michael Jackson's three children are enjoying going to school for the first time and learning to live without their father, says their aunt La Toya.

"For the first time they have gone to school and they really like it, so I'm very happy for them. It's taught something totally different about people and life. They're just enjoying themselves" said La Toya.

Prince Michael I, 14, Paris, 13, and nine-year-old Prince Michael II, also known as 'Blanket', are now in the custody of their grandmother Katherine Jackson following the pop icon's death in 2009.

La Toya added, "And they go shopping, they do things of that nature, but they're with security of course. And they enjoy themselves, they have fun.”

Toya admired all the three children and said that she is so proud of them for the way they have coped with their father's shock death and their strength has helped her deal with her grief too.

She said, "They're doing very well, children are so resilient, I'm so proud of them, I'm just very happy. They help me a great deal with my brother. I couldn't listen to the music, I couldn't listen to the songs, and if they can get over it then I have to too."
