Giving the Family Some 'Me' Time

I feel I take some of the pressure off the mother. When you are helping with small children it does not take a lot – most of the time I play games with the kids. If it’s a nice day, we go out into the garden and kick a ball about. Or we play inside with toys, drawing and colouring in and we read a lot together. I also have a good chat with the other members of the family about how their week has been and any problems or concerns they have come up against and we have a laugh. It gives the family a couple of hours' 'me' time.
