Q: Am I being selfish and unrealistic wanting my partner and I to have just one night a week to ourselves?

Lezlie says...
Selfish and unrealistic?! Try balanced and not headed for an emotional breakdown. Kids are a joy, but they take more out of you than a marathon. So hire a babysitter, find an obliging pal, parent or neighbour—whatever. Just get out and be a couple.

Lezlie Lowe has two jobs: 1) freelance writer/broadcaster/researcher, and 2) mother of two young girls. Guess which is more difficult. Send her your parenting questions here.
