Person: How often do you see your kids?

Divorced father: I see them every Friday.

Person: What do you do when you have them?

Divorced father: We usually go to the arcades.

Is the highlighted question natural in the context? Is it natural to use have them here?


Yes, it is both grammatical and natural to use in this context. Them is also appropriate as there are multiple kids and not a single kid.

    To have a child can mean to give birth, but obviously it doesn't in this context. The father has the children in his charge on Fridays. – Kate Bunting May 5 '20 at 16:39
