We have a little segment called Mum’s the Word with Mon here at 97.3FM, and this morning newsreader Monique took the opportunity to ask the parents of Brisbane: Should mums feel guilty for going on a holiday without the kids? 

Whether it be with her partner, with some girlfriends, or travelling solo, should you travel without the kids in tow – in fact should it even be encouraged!?

We had mixed reactions from callers. But Bianca, Mike and Bob all agreed that a short trip away can be good for the mind. And you have to take care of yourself before looking after others. 

What side of the fence do you sit on?

Do you regularly do a few nights away with the girls? Or trips away as a couple to reconnect? 

And should their be restrictions depending on how old the children are? 

There’s a lot to consider!
