Rachael Finch hits back at her 'child free weekends'

Ms Finch, who married her Dancing With The Stars partner, Michael Miziner, posted on her Instagram account after backlash.  

"A Mother should never be made to feel they are not good enough for their child when they are doing everything they can to keep them safe, happy and loved. Only the parents of a child truly know what is best and should always have faith in their decisions.  

"I value dearly the relationship Violet has with her Grandmother and I believe this is one of the most important and influential relationships growing up.   

"I work hard so that I can provide the best future for the amazing soul we have created. I won't ever stop believing in her or the strength of the family unit."
