Off-Grid Parents Caused A Storm Of Controversy With Their Parenting Style.

Raising kids is a hectic job, and just about everyone has a different approach on how to go about doing it. While many choose to raise their kids by easing up on the discipline and spoiling them, others prefer a stricter stance. However, there is one couple who decided to do away with society's conventional rules, and a chose a more natural way to raise their kids. But although some people may judge them for using such controversial techniques, these parents insist that they're doing what's best for their children.

Adele and Matt Allan adopted the natural approach when it came to bringing up their children.

The couple from Brighton is blessed with a son and a daughter, who are quite attached to them, especially to their mother. But that's probably because they are still breast fed, despite the children's ages.

Opting for a natural home birth for the kids, Adele didn’t even cut the umbilical cords; they fell off naturally.

The couple believes that most major childhood illnesses occur due to emotional distress, and they said, “We think most illnesses are caused by emotional problems so we want to get to the root of that rather than fill the body with medicines that will only serve to make the problem worse.”

Cited as Britain’s most unconventional parents, some might say that they took the road too far with their unorthodox parenting.

A writer by profession, Adele is comfortable with the decision to not send her children to mainstream schools. Talking about her son, she said, “Ulysses is home-schooled, but I haven’t tried to teach him numbers or the alphabet because I believe children naturally start decoding language around seven or eight. I’d much prefer it if he was outside enjoying nature.”

It's also a strict "No" from the couple when it comes to vaccinations and doctors.

About their "off the grid" parenting, Adele said, “We parent according to what we feel in our hearts. We don’t want our children to be institutionalized.” Adele further added, “Everything is natural. We never wake them up at a set time, we want them to be in tune with their bodies. We have a positive approach to discipline and don’t call them bad or naughty. That is too negative.”

To Adele, this concept of conventional living goes back to her twenties when she realized that coconut oil helped her lose weight where everything else had failed.

So, she along with her then Yoga teacher, Matt, started looking for alternative ways of living. The couple met in a cocktail bar where Adele worked and later got married on January 2010 in Goa, India in an intimate ceremony.
