Around midnight, a 22-year-old mother came to pick up her son from his grandmother.
She didn’t want to let him go to the frost
– There was a dispute between the women about taking care of a three-year-old boy. The Applicant did not want to let him out of the apartment at such a later time, correctly stating that it was frost outside and it was not the time to walk with the baby.
