A woman ruffled a few feathers online after she revealed her controversial parenting methods.
In the clip, which racked up over 360,000 likes, she revealed she will never leave her daughter alone with a male, including family members such as her grandfather.
Elsewhere she said there will be ‘no sleepovers’ with friends or family and she said her little girl doesn’t have to respect people if they don’t respect her.
Starting the clip while doing her makeup she said: ‘No sleepovers, not even with family members. And she will never be left alone with a male. I don’t care if you’re the grandparent, the uncle or the cousin.’
Mother-of-two Aubrey, who lives in Phoenix, Arizona, ruffled a few feathers online after she revealed her controversial parenting methods
‘I won’t treat my daughter any differently to my son, for instance, me letting my son go out late but not my daughter because it’s too dangerous for a woman – I’m just going to treat them both the same.’
For her third rule she stated her children have to be open and honest with her no matter what.
She explained: ‘Secrets will not be kept from your parents. And if you’re one of those people now saying “I’ll give you candy when your mum’s not here, just don’t tell her”, that’s the quickest way to never see us again.
‘She doesn’t have to kiss you, hug you or sit on your lap just because you asked her to and because your a relative and haven’t seen her in a long time.
‘She doesn’t have to respect you if you don’t also respect her, as a child she still will have opinions and emotions and she is allowed to feel a certain way.’
Aubrey says her kids can have ‘mental health days’ when they need them and she’ll help them ‘regulate their emotions’.
She also revealed she will be doing things slightly different when it comes to school and medicine.
She said: ‘We’re not going to do a public school system that makes you sit at a desk for eight hours and not learn anything you really care about.
‘We will always use holistic methods before we resort to western medicine, and I’m not going to force [my daughter] to share or finish her plate of food.’
She continued: ‘I am teacher her to stand up for herself, set boundaries and say no.
‘I wont ever talk poorly about myself in front of her and I wont make comments about her appearance or body image.
‘I am teaching her she can always come to me and never has to hide anything. As a mom I will make mistakes and I will own up to it and apologise.

‘Nothing will ever be just because I said so, I will have legitimate reasons. I am also going to travel with her even when it’s hard with a toddler, it’s worth making all the memories and experiences with our family.
She concluded: ‘I want her to know her worth and never look to others for validation.’
The clip was captioned: ‘Controversial ways I’m raising my daughter. Call me crazy IDC.’
The views were mixed in the comments section, while many agreed with the mothers rules, some thought no sleepovers was a step too far.

Another said: ‘She won’t ever be allowed to have sleepovers with her friends? no judgement. just those were some of my best childhood memories’
While another agreed saying: ‘No sleep overs is wild, I hate that my mom never let me.’
However others praised Aubrey for her rules with many saying they actually do the same.
One person said: ‘So many things happened to me as a child AT A SLEEPOVER!! Good for you mama.’
Another wrote: ‘The no hugging thing! Thank you! I hated when my mom would force us to hug people I did not like. A lot of my relatives we’re mean to me as a child.’
While someone else said: ‘100% The school and medical one is my favorite. and the food 1. and the body image. ‘
