ED’S LET­TER

Sunday Herald Sun - Stellar - - Contents -

If there was any doubt that few things un­leash more judge­ment than a fel­low hu­man’s par­ent­ing style then those doubts were laid to rest a year ago when Rachael Finch opened up about her fam­ily’s babysit­ting ar­range­ments. Come the week­ends, she dared to con­fess, daugh­ter Vi­o­let was cared for by her grand­mother so Finch and hus­band Michael Miziner could spend time alone. The back­lash was fierce as self-ap­pointed par­ent­ing com­men­ta­tors across the coun­try saw fit to con­demn an ar­range­ment that surely con­cerned no one but the im­me­di­ate fam­ily mem­bers in­volved. When asked my opin­ion about the furore dur­ing a panel dis­cus­sion on the To­day show at the time, I ad­mit­ted that if I felt any­thing it was merely jeal­ousy. A week­end sleep-in know­ing your beloved child is un­der the watch­ful gaze of a dot­ing rel­a­tive? Sign me up! Hav­ing grace­fully sur­vived the mis­placed out­rage di­rected their way, Finch and Miziner re­cently wel­comed a new baby, Dominic, into the world and proudly un­veil their grow­ing – and se­ri­ously pic­tureper­fect – fam­ily in to­day’s cover story. Our con­grat­u­la­tions to the sec­ond-time-around new par­ents.
