Mom Practices “Free Range” Parenting – Breastfeeds 5-Year-Old And Won’t Enforce Discipline And Rules

    The world is full of “perfect parents”. Everybody has an opinion on how they would raise your kids better than you…

    Generally, most parents are able to figure out some kind of strategy that ensures their kids stick to the straight and narrow but still manage to have fun. There’s no right way of doing it!

    However, on the odd occasion, a parenting method will be widely dismissed by most people as ineffective or even kind of crazy. And the parents that practice these more niche approaches tend to meet pretty heavy criticism.

    This certainly seems to have been the experience of “Free Range” parent Adele Allan. But (and all credit to her!) she’s sticking by her guns on this one!

    Her “Free Range” kids are homeschooled, unvaccinated and do not have rules or discipline enforced on them. How the heck does this woman keep them from becoming little brats who won’t put on their freakin’ shoes in the morning?!

    Oh wait… the kids don’t wear shoes. Their parents want them to experience the world through their feet.

    “It’s a great way for her to feet alive and feel the sensations beneath her feet,” says dad, Matt.

    Okay, so to average joes like you and I, this does seem kind of extreme…

    I can’t say I’m totally crazy about not vaccinating your babies… Adele argues that breast milk can cure certain diseases like conjunctivitis and she wouldn’t want anything “foreign” entering her children’s bodies.

    It should come as no surprise that Adele had extremely minimal medical intervention during her pregnancy. She was keen for everything to be done “au naturale”.

    The Allen’s children do not attend school. Instead, their parents prefer to teach them about the world from their home, allowing the children’s interests to dictate their lessons.
