Connor Robertson (@clothdiaperdad) stitched another TikToker to respond to a question they'd posed about parenting styles.

They had asked: "What's an unpopular opinion that you have about your parenting that might make a lot of parents mad?"

In his response, which has racked up 3.4 million likes and more than 37,000 comments, Robertson said: "Oh, I've got a lot of these but here are my top three.

"Number one: my kid will be allowed to swear. I do not care how old he is and I do not care if it upsets you or your children.

"He is more than likely going to grow up to be an adult who swears, so we might as well let him practice while he can.

"My wife and I actually have a bet on whether his first words are going to be 'F***' or 'I love you' because those are the two most popular words in our household."

He continued: "Number two: we know anatomy in this household, which means that 'penis' and 'vagina' are actual words. Again, I do not care if that makes you or your children uncomfortable, but those are the words that we're going to be using in this household.

"No slang terms, no 'coohcie', no 'dingaling', no 'kitty kitty miaow miaow', anything like that. 'Penis' and 'vagina'. That's how it works, that's what they are, no shame in it.

"And number three: toys do not have genders. If he wants to play with it then he's going to be able to play with it.

"For example, we have a pink chair that we bought him at a garage sale. Why? Because it was cheaper than the blue one, and it really does not matter.

"So yes, my son has a pink chair that he plays with, and he absolutely loves it."

Some people didn't back Robertson's parenting style, with one writing: "I respectfully disagree with everything you said."

Another wrote: "I agree with everything except the swearing."

A third commented: "Your house your rules, that doesn't mean all ur rules are right though."

However, the general consensus was surprisingly positive.

"I love this sm!! What a great way to raise a child, well done," one user said.

Someone else wrote: "My rule on curse words was time and place around others and they could not be used in anger towards someone else."

A third added: "The sooner children start using curse words the sooner they'll learn when it's appropriate."
