The Hush Post: Superstar Shah Rukh Khan is an intelligent hands-on parent to his three children. On Sunday, the actor took to Instagram and became a ‘Parent philosopher’.
The caption of the post read, “Sunday afternoon…for no apparent reason…feel like being a Parent Philosopher. This is to thank the kids not to give advice to parents…”
In the post, SRK writes, “Our children are not our responsibility. They are a measure of our capability”.
“When someone says ‘my kid is such a problem’… I want to tell them don’t look at them don’t look at them as that… ‘cos actually their ‘issues’ are a call to our potential” he wrote.
This bit of experience-based tip on parenting little ones and teenagers could be a bit of parenting goal for Gen-next over-enthusiastic parents. Parents these days are unable to clearly draw the line on overdose of love or of restrain on their wards.
Shah Rukh Khan has been a self-made man with education to compliment his acting skills. He is one of the highly qualified film-stars who made his way into film only after completing higher formal education .
