“I don’t see myself as a perfect parent,” she added. “Yeah, they don’t have harnesses or helmets, but I think there are lessons to be learned that don’t necessarily lead to instant death, but actually learn your own parameters.”
Amanda has nine children with her husband Clive and she often shares photos and videos of the children enjoying nature at Ravenseat Farm.
