A family who were advocating off-grid parenting on This Morning have been slammed for the behaviour of their children.
Matt and Adele Allen from Brighton spoke to Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford to speak about their alternative lifestyle.
Adele told the hosts that son Ulysses, 5, was still breastfeeding, and would stop only when he’s ready.
She said: “We prefer to go the more free-range natural route.”
The restless child and his 1-year-old sister Ostara climbed over the sofa, as Ruth asked whether they imposed any rules or discipline at home.
Adele said: “We do have rules, he would do as we ask.
“We speak to him respectfully knowing he’s an equal human being to us.
“He is a highly sensitive child in nature and gets overwhelmed very easily.
“It’s important to him to not have strong, authoritative discipline as he doesn’t react well to that.”
The parents confirmed that their children don’t attend school.
“We do unschooling. It’s home education away from the curriculum.
“Whatever he’s interested in, we provide the opportunities for him to learn about it at that time.”
