Parents defend ‘child-free’ weekends after online outrage

SYDNEY, Australia (WCMH) – An Australian model and her husband are defending themselves online after talking about their child-free weekends.

Rachael Finch and husband Michael Miziner are the parents of a 2-year-old daughter, who they say ‘so-long’ to every single weekend.

“Every weekend [Violet] goes to Mish’s mum’s house, and we get our weekend to ourselves,” Finch recently told Sunday Style magazine. “I think that’s incredibly healthy for the relationship. And on Sunday, when we pick her up, we have 100-percent energy back.”

The reaction to that statement has not been entirely positive, today.com reported.

One internet commenter called the arrangement ‘ridiculous and selfish.’

Finch defended the arrangement on Instagram, along with the close relationship her daughter has with her grandmother.
