As an adult, we all can proudly say, "My Life. My rules." But when we were kids, well not so much. Our parents tell us, what to do and what not do. For some children, their dreams have come true.
The experiment - let kids set the rules
Recently, an experiment was conducted by The Guardian. Parents were asked to let their kiddos do whatever they want, for a day. They can sleep and eat whenever they like with no scolding from anyone.

Naturally, the little ones denied baths, had an hourly food fight, endlessly watched TV, and swear as they would. The children had sweets and sleepovers with their friends with no restrictions.

The conclusion of this test was very interesting. The parents, after a long time, had a break and it was quite good for them to relax. On the other hand, the kids woke up tired, grumpy, and hungry the next morning.
Parents of 7 who have no restriction on their kids
The controversial Rawnsley family was on a documentary series called 'Feral Families'. This family from Yorkshire is unbelievably cool.
They raise their kids without rules, choose not to send them to school, and allow them to shave their heads. In addition to this, the mother, Gemma regularly dyes her seven-year-old daughter's hair purple. And the kids can even get tattoos if they want.
The father, Lewis had decided right from the start that conventional parenting was not for them. They claim that their children are more well-behaved and moral than normal kids living with rules.
However, some people declared this method of parenting unrealistic and irresponsible, while others appreciated it.
Why children need discipline and rules?
Sadly, this way of parenting may be tempting but is not practical. Don't be the villain to enforce rules though. Setting limits is vital for teaching kids self-control. It also helps the child feel secure.

According to experts, the disciplines are the ones that control the consequences of kid's actions. This ultimately keeps him safe. Helping little ones to stick to the rules will make him pleasant to have around and be around. Sure, yeah! and less noise too!
