Despite the common belief that too much screen time is bad for children’s development, this mother still permits her kids to spend some leisurely hours with their devices – but only after they finish all of their homework and duties. This parenting technique may not be favored by many, as it goes against traditional wisdom; however, she refuses to allow any sleepovers at friends’ houses regardless.
Huck’s third opinion on parenting, which is followed by many other parents as well, states that she wouldn’t give her kids any supplementary food if they decline to eat what she prepared for them. Contrary to the two preceding statements of hers, this idea isn’t unpopular at all.
“Unpopular parenting opinions: I don’t allow sleepovers, as long as school and chores are done, I don’t limit screen time, [and] if they don’t eat what I eat, they don’t eat,” Tara stated.
In response to the sheer volume of criticism directed toward her less-than-conventional parenting views, Huck uploaded a follow up video on social media in order to clarify her motives and address viewers’ comments.
“People are coming for me, I mean making troll accounts left and right, sending me nasty messages, wishing death upon me, all because I don’t allow sleepovers,” she stated.

“You don’t know what’s going to happen, and it has nothing to do with me not trusting my kids,” Huck stated. “It has nothing to do with me not wanting my kids to have fun. It has nothing to do with anything besides the fact that you can not be positive that something won’t happen to your children at somebody else’s house. Even if you trust those people, they could have older siblings, parents, and friends staying over. There are a million other factors. There are too many other factors that I’m not willing to risk my children’s safety for them to have a sleepover.”
