A MUM has revealed that her daughter doesn’t have a bedtime, and she can stay up to 5am if she wants.
TikTok user @treeeflower uploaded a video with the title “unconventional (and controversial) ways I’m raising my 10 year old.”
She continued: “No bedtimes, or wake up times, (sometimes that means going to sleep at 5am and waking up at 4pm).
“Has never been to school. Chooses what she wants to learn and when she wants to learn it.”
The mum added she also puts no limit on screen times for her daughter and she is free to make her own choices.
Another one of her “rules” is “no sleepovers”, and this applies to family members too.
She added that her daughter still sleeps in the same bedroom as her.
Finally, she said she is raising her daughter to “speak her own mind” and she is “encouraged to be opinionated”.
The mum shared how she is a “crunchy mum”, and according to Kidspot.au, this means a mum who would prefer to use natural options if they can.
They wrote: "Crunchy mums usually choose the natural option instead of the mass-produced or medicated one.
"So that’s a natural (drug-free) home birth, placenta encapsulating, breastfeeding (not just for the 6 month recommended WHO minimum, but until the child weans themselves), anti-vaccination, anti-circumcision, baby-wearing, co-sleeping, bed sharing, cloth nappies or elimination communication, attachment parenting, natural medicine, organic eating, and (sometimes) homeschooling or unschooling."
The mum’s video has been viewed over 700,000 times, and divided opinion.
One person wrote: “You’re basically creating a child who will be dependent on you for life bc she lacks a basic education.”
Another added: “How can she be opinionated when she’s exposed to nothing?”
However, one supported the parenting method, and said: “Raising a child authentically away from society’s standard is nothing to be ashamed of.”
Meanwhile, a sleep guru reveals you can put kids to bed at 5.30pm & get them to sleep through & it’s a lifesaver for worn out parents.
And this is the exact time children should go to bed according to their age, teacher reveals.
Previously, we shared how a crunchy mum has banned her kids from sleepovers and won’t teach them about Santa.
