On a UK morning show, This Morning, hosts Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes interviewed self described “Off-grid” parents about their parenting techniques when their youngest child wandered off to wee on the studio floor, whilst live on air.
“Off-grid parents” Matt and Adele Allen were being interviewed by hosts about their decision to refuse schooling, refuse vaccinations and traditional medicine and how they also have an extremely relaxed approach in regards to rules for their two children.
The footage has left some viewers reeling with many taking to social media to express disgust at the behaviour of the children and the fact that their child is allowed to pee on the floor.
I think when your kid pisses live on TV and then jumps on the couch you probably have to rethink your parenting strategies #offgridparenting

If you don’t set children rules in the home, how do you expect them to abide by the rules of society? Quite dangerous #offgridparenting
