A mum has revealed that her daughter has no bedtime and can stay up until 5am if she wants.
TikTok user @treeeflower uploaded a video titled “Unconventional (and controversial) ways of raising my 10-year-old.”
She continued: “No bedtime, no wake up time (sometimes that means going to sleep at 5am and waking up at 4pm).
“Never been to school. Chooses what she wants to learn and when she wants to learn it.
The mother added that she places no limits on screen time for her daughter and is free to make her own choices.
Another one of his “rules” is “no slumber parties”, and this also applies to family members.
She added that her daughter always sleeps in the same room as her.
Finally, she said she was raising her daughter to “speak her mind” and was “encouraged to have opinions.”
The mum explained that she is a ‘crispy mum’, and according to Kidspot.au that means a mum who would rather use natural options if she can.
They wrote: “Crusty moms usually choose the natural option over the mass-produced or medicated one.”
Typically, this may include drug-free home births, encapsulation of the placenta, breastfeeding until a child is weaned, co-sleeping, bonding parenting, and may include teaching to residence.
The mom’s video has been viewed over 700,000 times and opinions are mixed.
One person wrote: “Basically you are creating a child who will depend on you for life because he lacks a basic education.”
Another added: ‘How can she have an opinion when she’s not exposed to anything?
However, one supported the parenting method and said, “There is nothing shameful in raising a child authentically away from societal norms.”
Meanwhile, a sleep guru reveals you can put the kids to bed at 5.30pm and get them to sleep and it’s a lifesaver for exhausted parents.
And that’s the exact time children should go to bed according to their age, the teacher reveals.
