Dividing time with child

 
Dividing time with child

Melanie's days are very hectic: "The week goes by so quickly, I don't know where time goes, but at the weekend I'm at a bit of a loss. I'm still in an unclear phase of my life. My old friends and my old life are still where I used to live, so I'm out of sorts."

"I need time for myself"
"It might seem strange but I manage to cope with only having Robert every other weekend. I need a life for myself. I take the opportunity to go shopping and catch up with friends. I appreciate the time I have to myself and I don't feel particularly abandoned without my son. When I get him back again, I feel calmer and more balanced."
