Model criticized for doing something to her daughter, no mother would do

Parenting is a tough thing and each has their own way of raising their kids and some of the methods they adopt may not seem so thoughtful to others.
An Australian model recently posted something about how she raises her daughter which caused her to see such a backlash that she had to post an explanation and replies on her original post. Read what she wrote that caused a massive outrage.

2 Reasons for criticism!
Model Rachael Finch recently revealed in an Instagram post that she leaves her two-year-old daughter with her mother-in-law every weekend so that she and her husband can spend some quality time together. She said that, “Every weekend (Violet) goes to Mish’s mum’s house, and we get our weekend to ourselves. She feels that it is incredibly healthy for the relationship and also added that when on Sunday, they pick her up, they have their 100 per cent energy back.
According to the schedule, Violet s looked after by her father during the mornings, while Finch’s mother Colleen Zablocki takes over the duties to look after the toddler while Michael goes to teach his dance classes. “It was very much career and travel, which still exist, but the priorities have become Violet and family, because you have this little thing that’s dependent on you, “says Finch.
She says that by leaving their daughter with her granny, both she and Michael can have some quality time together without worrying about their daughter. She says that this can also save your marriage, which may come apart as the spouse can feel that he/she is been sidelined as the child requires majority of the attention.
