An article posted on Little Things about Adele Allan and her husband who raise their children as what many title “free-range” kids, is causing a stir on the internet.

Their kids don’t get vaccinated, don’t go to school and there aren’t any rules in their home!

Adele also wants to continue to breastfeed her 5-year-old son and 1-year-old daughter. She believes that by raising her kids out of “the system,” and letting them do what they please they’ll be more in tune with nature and themselves.

She does not believe it’s necessary to teach her son to read and write just now and says it can wait until he’s older. For now, he is given a few bins with arts, crafts, and toys to stimulate him intellectually.

According to the article, she told Barcroft last year. “Traditional parenting methods rub me the wrong way. The cry out method for the young babies… the baby has still got that in their DNA from when they used to be hunter-gatherers and they need to feel safe,”

The Mom believes that all ailments can be treated naturally, without the use of medication. Conjunctivitis, for example – she believes can be cured with the enzymes from breastmilk. She also says that if she were to have cancer, she wouldn’t seek medical intervention.

She says that the kids will often pick leaves from a tree and eat them and that their youngest does not wear shoes at all as it allows her to experience life better.

The family says they are criticized for their unusual lifestyle, often out of concern for the safety of their children. The couple however feel very strongly that they are doing what’s best for their children.
