    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.

    Matt says, “We did collect a lot of information on how to raise children, but essentially it was just this feeling about what was right.”

    Talking about their friends and family and their shocking reactions, Adele said, “People we know criticize our parenting style, but it’s only because they have been conditioned to the conventional way of thinking.”

    Matt says, “We did collect a lot of information on how to raise children, but essentially it was just this feeling about what was right.”

    According to her, “Breastfeeding is as natural as a hug and I’m not willing to tell Ulysses to stop until he makes the decision that he is ready. It’s comforting.”

    Both of their babies were born at home, and according to Adele, “Matt taught me lots of breathing exercises that helped manage the pain. It’s all about listening to your body, and I knew my body could handle childbirth without medical help.” To increase the family bond, they all sleep in the same room.

    According to her, “Breastfeeding is as natural as a hug and I’m not willing to tell Ulysses to stop until he makes the decision that he is ready. It’s comforting.”

    Adele likes to treat any sort of illness with natural, safe and effective methods.

    As a toddler, Ulysses had minor asthma attacks, which she treated with a mix of steam from the shower and eucalyptus oil. She's also used her breast milk to treat her children's eye infections, and lemon juice for their colds.

    Despite being home-schooled, she takes her son for a weekly meeting where he connects with other children.

    She points out that, “Ulysses makes friends so easily because he is out and about all day, interacting with people of all ages and not stuck in a classroom. Our lifestyle might seem unusual, but I truly think our children are healthier and happier because of it.”

    Last year, the couple was heavily trolled when their daughter, Ostara, urinated on the live show, "This Morning."

    Defending her daughter, Adele wrote on Facebook, “Well done to Ulysses and Ostara for putting up with the media chaos today... and Ostara did have a nappy on the show, but shock and horror, sometimes they leak!! #herecomethetrolls."

    The couple now wants to move to Costa Rica, in order to achieve their ambition of self-sustainability.

    They are asking people to donate £100,000 for them so that their dream can be realized. If you'd like to adopt the couple's way of raising their kids, you're in luck. Adele shares her opinions and thoughts of raising her kids in an unconventional manner on her Facebook page, The Unconventional Parenting.

  • How To Organize Your Fridge Like Martha Stewart On Steroids.

    Our health is one of the most important things in life, and undoubtedly, it depends on the food we eat. We often ignore the simple measures that should be taken to stay healthy. The food we eat can either be the safest and the most powerful form of medicine, or the slowest form of poison. So, it's important to take simple steps like cleaning our fridge to ensure a healthy level of hygiene. Here are some hacks that are pretty simple yet effective in sanitizing your refrigerator.

    Make separate compartments for fruits and vegetables.

    If you want these products to stay fresh in your fridge a lot longer, then it’s important to store ethylene-sensitive vegetables alone in a high-humidity drawer. On the other hand, ethylene-producing fruits should be stored in a separate drawer with the low-humidity setting on.

    Don’t store milk on the side of your fridge door.

    As the fridge door opens, the temperature of the products drop and the constant fluctuation results in the milk spoiling faster. Therefore, dairy products should always be kept on a shelf in the main compartment of your fridge.

    Put water containers in your freezer.

    Fill empty containers with water and keep them in your freezer. It helps them run more efficiently and maintain ideal temperatures when full.

    Use transparent boxes more often to store food in your fridge.

    Don’t use opaque plastic tubs. The see-through ones help you to know what you have in your fridge and what needs to be used first.

    Make sure and limit the amount of air that's trapped inside your food containers.

    Products like eggs, asparagus, beets, mushrooms, carrots, celery, cucumbers, zucchini, berries, etc. last longer in an airtight container.

    When it comes to veggies, try to remove the green parts from the roots.

    The green parts of the vegetables, like radish, beets, carrots, etc., suck the moisture out of the edible roots, making them limp and chewy. So remember to trim them off before storing your veggies in the refrigerator.

    Next time you vacuum your carpet, stop for a moment, and used it in the back of your refrigerator.

    This might not sound like a great idea, but dust particles accumulate behind the refrigerator and settle on the condenser coils. Cleaning them will help the heat from the refrigerator dissipate quicker.

    It's always a good idea to cover every item that you store in your refrigerator.

    When food is left uncovered, it releases moisture in the air, which won't be entirely removed by the compressor and could make your fridge start to smell. So cover your food whenever possible.

    Create a homemade cleaner that will work wonders for your refrigerator and won't make it smell like chemicals.

    Take some lemon and some rosemary and turn it into a cleaning solution. Not only will this prevent mold and mildew from forming inside the fridge, but it will make it look and smell like new.

    Designate a special place to store foods that should be eaten right away.

    Leftovers are pretty common, especially in a big household, or if you have the habit of over ordering takeout. So some people work on the principle of out of sight, out of mind and forget all about it until it rots. So to prevent wasting good food, label your containers, so you'll know what you've got.

    Having a sibling is one topsy-turvy ride. On one hand, you hate sharing your stuff with them, but on the other, they're the rock that keeps you steady during difficult times. Granted, the arguing between two siblings can be annoying, even though everyone else finds it entertaining. But very few people realize or appreciate the depth of the bond siblings share. But what happens when both of them are in danger at the same time? Well, let's just say that the situation can be heartwarming.

    Two tiny felines were found on the streets alone, and their mother nowhere to be found.

    The life journey for these kittens, Banes and Ines, had a rather bumpy start. They had no one but each other, and this was the only thing that made the two hopeful of a better future, assuming they survived the odds.

    The kittens were holding on to each other tightly for dear life.

    When they were found by the rescuers, they were taken off the street and immediately given another chance at a happy life.

    The kittens were merely 5 weeks old at the time they weren't in the best shape.

    In fact, they were petrified with fear, which is understandable under the circumstances. They were also very thin, and infested with fleas on the outside and parasites on the inside.

    Banes and Ines were then taken to Chatons Orphelins Montreal, a rescue center, which gave the kittens everything that was missing in their young lives.

    Founded in 2015, Chatons Orphelins Montreal has worked hard towards the care of abandoned cats. After sterilizing the cats, they find responsible and caring families to adopt them. The kittens were certainly no exception to this process. They were given immediate medical attention, and they soon showed remarkable improvement in their health.

    With loads of love showering them, the kittens began socializing with other cats and humans in their foster home.

    Although their early beginnings on Earth had been rough, the kitties definitely appreciated the welcome change that came with a stable and loving environment.

    The siblings were inseparable, and no one wanted to separate them.

    It was evident from the start that the kittens relied on each other for emotional support and just couldn’t stand being away from each other for even a minute. So, it was decided that the two would be adopted as a pair only and not as individual cats.

  • ‘Elephant Guardian’ Delivers Water To Thirsty Animals, But It's A Difficult Job.

    cdn.lifebuzz.com_images_189669_lifebuzz-e48e91bf8617653c59f8e7db6455cadb-thumb_800

    Kenya’s Tsavo West National Park has been right in the middle of a terrible drought for quite some time now. When it doesn’t rain there isn't enough water generated for the wild animals that live there. This is a major problem that you really can’t do much about. After all, you can’t just MAKE it rain. Patrick Mwalua has come up with a solution though.

    When he found out about the problem he decided to take action. Every single day he rents a truck, fills it with clean water and drives hours out to the park. He fills up the bone dry watering holes with the water to the delight of all of the wild animals that live nearby.

    The animals have come to know the sound of his truck and now on many days there are hundreds of animals waiting for him when he gets there. They flock to him like little kids to an ice cream truck.

    Since Patrick does this on his own it’s a pretty expensive venture. The rental of the truck every day can get quite expensive pretty quickly. A Go Fund Me page has been set up to help him out. So far a good amount of money has been raised but he still needs more help. He’d like to purchase his own truck to bring the expenses down a bit. Not many people deserve the money more than Patrick does.

    Patrick Mwalua goes out of his way every day to help animals get water.

    Patrick drives several hours each day to bring water to the animals. The thirsty animals are always happy to see him.

    He rents a water truck every day so they can get what they need.

    He rents a truck every day to bring the water. he said, “If we don’t help them, they will die.”

    Patrick is a pea farmer with a good heart.

    He is a pea farmer that rents a truck each day to deliver the water. The watering holes need to be filled so he took it upon himself to do it.

    The animals are very grateful and sometimes even waiting for him.

    The animals understand exactly what he is doing for them. Sometimes when he arrives there are hundreds of them waiting for him.

    There has been a very bad drought that Patrick is trying to help them through.

    There has been a bad drought in the area and the animals are suffering. Now when he pulls up each day the elephants, buffalo, antelope and zebras all come running, happy to see him.

    The animals come running whenever he arrives.

    They know he is bringing the water and they trust him. He said, "When I arrived they could smell the water. The buffalo were so keen and coming close to us."

    They have come to know the sound of his truck.

    The animals at Kenya's Tsavo West National Park now know the sound of his truck. When they hear him coming they all gather around the empty watering hole.

    Patrick would like to get his own truck to help them.

    Patrick loves helping the animals. He would like to get his own truck to perform the service that he does. This way he wouldn't have to rent one every day.

    A Go Fund Me page has been set up to help his quest.

    There has already been over $150,000 raised to help with the water deliveries. This is a big help but more is still needed. The daily rental and delivery is expensive.

    He also teaches local kids about wildlife.

    Patrick not only helps the animals and grows peas, he also teaches local children about wildlife. He also runs a group called Tsavo Volunteers.

    Here is a shot of Patrick next to the truck that he rents every day.

    See his shirt? Very good choice!

  • Pregnant Side Chick Texts The Wrong Person.

    cdn.lifebuzz.com_images_189778_lifebuzz-70af5dad4e473c1d3ed373ea3d7ee89c-thumb_800

    At one point or another we have all gotten a text or phone call from a wrong number. For the most part, it's a pretty quick clarification, with the caller and the receiver simply chuckling about the confusion.

    That is unless the wrong number texting you starts off with a pretty juicy and dramatic accusation, you can't just let it go. You have to address it and get as much information as possible, even if that means the person who started the text is not in on the fun you are having.

    One woman didn't ask to see if she was speaking to the appropriate person, she went straight to the point.

    She accused the receiver of getting pregnant by her boyfriend. Naturally shocked, she needed clarification. Hence, she asked which boyfriend the woman was referring to. Finally the woman reveals the name of her baby’s daddy; it’s Sam.

    One woman didn't ask to see if she was speaking to the appropriate person, she went straight to the point.

    OddOod / Imgur

    Unfortunately, the recipient knows more than one Sam.

    Maybe she is dating more than one with that name. First, she wanted to know if it was Sam Winchester, the character played by Jared Padalecki in the hit show Supernatural.

    Unfortunately, the recipient knows more than one Sam.

    OddOod / Imgur

    Or it could be the ever so loyal Sam from Lord of The Rings.

    Mind you his full name is Samwise Gamgee and he was played by Sean Astin. But we doubt this Hobbit is the baby’s father since he lives in the Shire.

    Or it could be the ever so loyal Sam from Lord of The Rings.

    OddOod / Imgur

    There is also Samwell Tarly, although he is more of a bookworm than a casanova.

    Plus, he has too much to worry about with the walkers endangering the future of his love Gilly and their boy Sam. We just don’t think this Game of Thrones character played by John Bradley is the Sam the woman is looking for.

    There is also Samwell Tarly, although he is more of a bookworm than a casanova.

    OddOod / Imgur

    Although, pretty impressive to come up with these famous Sams, the woman fails to see the humour.

    She asks the woman on the other end of the phone if she thinks she is funny? Without missing a beat, she admits she does think she is comical.

    Although, pretty impressive to come up with these famous Sams, the woman fails to see the humour.

    OddOod / Imgur

    Rather than end the conversation the woman unleashes her experience with her ex-lover.

    She goes on a rant about the type of guy she was dating, complaining he never took her to a nice dinner. Instead of admitting whether she knows where Sam is, the conversation turns into a grammar lesson.

    Rather than end the conversation the woman unleashes her experience with her ex-lover.

    Still, the recipient is not letting her off the hook.

    She suggested the date should have happened at McDonald's at the very least.

    The situation is escalating and emotions are running high for this poor pregnant woman.

    She is done playing games, demanding to have Sam.

    Clearly, the recipient is a huge Supernatural fan as she has the memes ready to send.

    Her text-enemy, however, comes to a sudden realization.

    She realizes she may have the wrong number.

    After her rant looking for Sam, she apologizes for the confusion.

    She realizes she may have the wrong number.

    But now with all this information about Sam's dalliances, what is the receiver to do?

    Of course continue to taunt and throw shade at the woman who texted to the wrong person.

    But now with all this information about Sam's dalliances, what is the receiver to do?

    OddOod / Imgur

    The moral of the story may be to triple check to ensure you are texting the right person.

    Or don't ever trust a guy named Sam!

    After discovering that they were expecting their third child, Tannin and Katie Pease made the conscious decision to keep the pregnancy a secret from Tannin’s mother for as long as possible.

    Keeping such a secret was no easy task, but it certainly didn’t hurt that Mom lived far away in Montana. Over the span of nine months, they had to get creative when it came to coming up with excuses as to why they couldn’t attend family events. The couple’s Facebook settings had to be changed to keep friends and family from tagging her in any surprise-ruining posts. The couple was able to keep the surprise going all the way until the day before Katie was expected to give birth!

    And of course, they knew they had to capture the joyous reveal on video.
