“As a mother, you can’t help but be inducted into this world. I feel it begins with curiosity as to what is your child watching followed by a bit of the motherly instinct to monitor and finally you are a part of their world.” Kajol told Mid-Day.
“I’m mostly around them when they are watching TV. I may be doing my stuff, but I keep an eye on what they are watching and in the process do end up watching a couple of episodes (of the shows),” she added.
Kajol believes that as a parent one must be strict and lay down certain guidelines, “These are learning years for them, they pick up fast and will retain what they learn now. So, in a way its sensitive age, so you have to be very careful of what is watched or read.”
