Selfish? Off-grid family hit with wave of backlash for not vaccinating their kids

Adele and Matt Allen have been hit by a wave of backlash following their appearance on This Morning. The parents opened up about their ‘off-grid’ parenting techniques.

One thing that really ticked viewers off was the fact that the parents don’t believe in modern medicine and refuse to vaccinate their children.

Adele and Matt have three-children together-two-month-old daughter Kai Autumn, three-year-old Ostara and seven-year-old Ulysses.

Viewers took to Twitter to express their disgust at the parent’s decision with many claiming they are selfish.

One user wrote: “I literally hate parents that don't vaccinate their kids. You're exposing your kids to diseases that were supposed to be gone. You're just being selfish.”

“I can not stress enough how important it is to vaccinate your children if it is medically possible. If you choose not to vaccinate you are endangering your child and every other child and vulnerable adult they come into contact with,” another stressed.

“Hate being judgemental but those parents who choose not to vaccinate their kids are selfish to other children,” another said.

One user expressed her shock over their decision: “I can't stand parents who don't vaccinate their children because they've 'done their research'. A few books and Internet articles don't come close to years of university, medical school and placements. Homeopathy doesn't cure polio or measles.”

The mum and dad support an ‘unconventional’ way of living, which means they are against modern medicine. During her three pregnancies, Adele previously shared that she never had an ultrasound and gave birth to their daughter Kai without any pain relief.
