"I'm Not Their Slave:" Mom-Of-6 Lets Her Kids ‘Feast With Their Hands’ And Doesn’t Bathe Them If They Don’t Want To
As adults, we don’t have to rely on routine as much. But many children need to have a consistent shedule in their lives, especially in a large family.

Family routine helps them to learn healthy habits, teaches them self-control, and reduces stress. But not all parents think that routines are important.
A mom-of-6 from Australia revealed her controversial parenting techniques in an interview with Mamamia. Perth-based blogger Constance Hall shared that having a large family made her cut a few corners.
Hall claims that she gives baths to her 6 kids only three times a week, explaining that skipping it ‘won’t kill them.’
They don’t have to bath or shower every day. They can quite often skip that part of the routine if it’s getting everyone down. I’m like, ‘Fine, stinky, go to school and gross everyone out’.
Not only that, but she also has her own “feeding secret.” Constance shared that she instructs her kids to eat with their hands because she doesn’t like dishes.
She shared that she just puts 2 piles of food in front of her children and lets them ‘feast with their hands.’
