Roxy Jacenko has once again been forced to defend her parenting style.
The PR Queen was slammed by a fan after she allowed son Hunter, 3, to stay up until almost 10pm playing on his iPad.
In an image shared to Instagram, the 37-year-old is shown curled up in bed with her son, she wrote, ‘No wonder he tells me I’m the best mummy in the world – 9.40pm and we are still ‘working’ on his iPad started at 7pm !!’
‘Poor child’ commented one Instagram user, to which Roxy clapped back: ‘poor child????? I think more likely a very lucky child to have someone who cares so much to sit, spend time to be with him rather than shut him in his room and let him’.
In a statement to Daily Mail Australia, Roxy explained: ‘As any parent would know – bedtimes can be challenging – kids don’t want to go to bed in fear of missing out on the fun!
‘Hunter and Pixie are no different – at 3 years old if Hunty wants to spend time with me and practice his reading on reading eggs then so be it.
‘It’s not like he has a board meeting the next day that he needs to be up and at it at 6am! The more time I can spend with him as a working mum the better I say!’
While it is recommended toddlers need 10-12 hours sleep a day, little Hunter may well have had a big arvo nap. Who knows?!
It is not something we would suggest you do regularly but some days you just gotta do whatever works!
Do your kids have a strict bedtime routine or are you fairly relaxed with it?
