TikTok mum Kayleigh said that she lets her children watch TV to keep them quiet and swears in front of them when she’s frustrated, but she insists that’s because she’s a real human being
A woman has hit back at internet trolls saying that she slips up sometimes and isn’t perfect – because she’s a ‘real mum’.
TikTok mum Kayleigh, @kayleighwilliams.x, uploaded a video where she lists her ‘faults’, saying that she lets her children watch TV to keep them quiet and that she swears in frustration sometimes.
She went on to say how she lets her children sleep in her bed on occasion, and that she isn’t ashamed – adding that she’s a ‘real mum’ and not a perfect social media image of a parent.
Now Kayleigh has been praised for her empowering video, as other TikTok users said that they parented in the same way and could see no problem with it.
