Negligence: an influencer mother reported to the police for the disastrous state of her house

A mother who regularly shares videos of cleaning her messy house on social networks was reported to the police by a stranger, who accused her of neglecting her four children.

“It was traumatic. It was horrible. I was so scared, I was so upset and so shaken,” Nicole Austin said in mid-June, followed by more than 21,100 subscribers on TikTok, according to The Sun.

A few weeks ago, the family from West Sussex, United Kingdom, was reportedly shaken by a late visit from police officers who came to respond to a complaint of child neglect at their home, the woman recounted in a video that had reached more than 876,000 views on TikTok.

The catch is that the woman who describes herself as a “relatable” mother is allegedly sharing content showing “personal videos of messes and deep cleans,” including many of the rooms before pickup.

Except that for several Internet users, the state of the house has gone beyond limits, while we can see piles of clothes lying on the floor against the toilet, objects left everywhere on the floor and even large bags in the hallways.

But according to the influencer, it was Internet users who crossed the line by sending the police to her door one weekday evening, traumatizing her children. Prior to this visit, the family had previously had social workers knock on their door for the same reason.

“Even though I expected [à ce que ça arrive tôt ou tard], it was still scary. I was just worried what they would say or that it would escalate. I do content creation as part of my job, so I panicked at the idea of ​​the police asking me to stop,” the mother continued, according to The Sun.

While many did not hesitate to comment on the abilities of both parents to maintain their home, others rather took off their hats for the representation, in their videos, of the harsh reality of life with several children.

“Finally! A real video. It’s so refreshing to see a house how it really looks,” said a first-time user.

“It makes me feel so much better, I thought it was just me, but my anxiety doesn’t motivate me sometimes. You are so brave to show this,” a second noted.
