A mum has divided opinion after admitting she doesn't allow her kids to go on sleepovers. You can watch her clip below alongside a follow-up video:

Anyone with children will have their own parenting style, and so it's really up to them whether they allow their little ones to stay around a friend's house or not.

There are arguments for and against it, with the pros being that most people who went on sleepovers remember them as being some of their best childhood memories and important for social interaction.

However, some people fear for their kids' safety - it says a lot that this child crimes investigator doesn't allow her children to take part.

But when TikToker @t.c.huck admitted to doing the same thing in a video, a lot of people weren't too understanding about the decision.

As said by one: "To each their own. It’s just sad to me that nowadays kids can’t experience the sleepovers that we as kids did."

Another wrote: "No sleepovers? Yikes. Those are some of my favourite childhood memories!"

"Man sleepovers were the best as a kid," added a third, while a fourth asked, "May I ask why no sleepovers? They can’t have friends sleep over or they can’t go anywhere?"

The mum explained in the comments section: "Can’t trust what happens at someone else’s house. And then don’t do them at mine because that’s not fair."

In a follow-up video, she said that she'd received an influx of angry messages from people, claiming she'd even been sent 'death threats' - all because she doesn't allow sleepovers.

Despite the backlash, a majority of the comments are from people who agree with this tactic, with many fearing sleepovers could lead to abuse.

One person said: "After working in Law Enforcement for 5.5 years now I do not allow sleepovers either."

A second addressed those who don't agree, writing: "For everybody commenting talking about sleepovers made their childhood, the world is different and scarier now."

"I work for the court system and the amount of things I’ve seen throughout the years is horrible," added a third. "My kids will sleep safe at home."

A fourth said: "As a social worker and survivor I will not allow sleepovers, even with family. My family doesn’t agree but it makes me feel better, others feel the same."

Clearly this is a hot topic amongst the parenting community.

Whether you agree with @t.c.huck or not, it's important to always be kind to each other online - there's no need to be spreading hate to someone who's simply being open about her particular parenting style.
