Britain's Best Parent's 'lazy approach' divides viewers

Channel 4’s Britain’s Best Parent has divided viewers, with vastly different approaches to raising kids causing all sorts of drama on the show.

Three different sets of parents battled it out with three different approaches to parenting – genderfluid, eastern-influenced, and ‘lazy’.

The ‘lazy’ approach in particular had fans shocked, with parents Kerry and Kevin explaining: ‘We pretty much let them do anything’.

That included letting the kids eat whatever they want for dinner, which left some fans absolutely baffled.

‘Anything you want to eat, you can have??? Oohh no no no no, you just lost the race dears,’ one viewer wrote, while another added: ‘No one should be proud to call themselves a lazy parent.’

However, others were a little more into the idea, with one writing: ‘Am i the only one that wanted the ‘lazy parents’ to win?’

Elsewhere on the show, Joana, who’s mum to five-year-old Willow, took the genderfluid approach, aiming to not enforce any gender stereotypes on her son.

‘We decided we were actively going to promote a child that would be exposed to everything, for him to choose exactly what he wanted to be,’ she explained.

Hannah, who takes a parent-centric approach to bringing up her son, is also competing.

Britain’s Best Parent returns Thursday at 8pm on Channel 4
