7 parenting tips from Bollywood - inspired straight from blockbuster movies we LOVE, which are clearly the best way to learn how to parent. Dig in!
7 parenting tips from Bollywood – inspired straight from blockbuster movies we LOVE, which are clearly the best way to learn how to parent. Dig in!
Bollywood movies are amazing. I mean, have you seen the songs, dance sequences, and over-the-top clothes which make you feel rich for 3 hours? Apart from this happy illusion, Bollywood movies are also very didactic. They tell you about SO many things, subtly of course.
Bollywood excels in parenting lessons. You just have to look closely to spot them. Don’t fret! We have done the honours for you and have you covered for life. You’re welcome.
First things, first. Start having children the moment you get married ok? Don’t make your parents go through the effort of asking you about khush khabri. No. Emotional and physical stability is irrelevant. Have children when your parents. Now, this might look like a ‘how to be good children’ lesson, but trust me, this was necessary.
Dads should never speak to their children without inciting extreme fear. If your children can talk to you comfortably, then you have failed as a dad. Tch tch. Effective communication is for the W E A K.
On that note, mothers are supposed to do all the communication that is lacking from the paternal side. Treat your son like a precious gem, and your daughters like paraya dhan cuz that’s how you gotta roll. Your sole aim in life is their shaadi. Good luck!
Sending your children to boarding school is the one-stop solution to all the issues they have. Make sure it’s a draconian school, and that there is no music/art/dance teacher who might accidentally tap into your child’s mind and ruin their life 🙂
Don’t let your children make their own decisions, they’ll ALWAYS end up doing drugs. Unless you’re a single parent, then you’re supposed cool and unconcerned about your child. That’s how it is. * shrugs*
Their shaadi/love life is totally at your mercy. Unruly child? Just make them marry someone of your choice, problem solved. Now the headache has shifted from your head to their partner. Don’t worry if the couple is not compatible, what is done is done. Divorce is a myth.
Speaking of shaadi, if you have a son then be prepared for him to be manipulated by his necessary witch of a wife and move out of your house. The fact that you chose her is irrelevant. All DILs are vamps who want to steal your son from you.
These are some tips that a must follow for all you parents out there. Make sure you follow them tot he dot. Of course, any unforeseen incident or a runaway child is not my responsibility. 🙂

Be it a working or a homemaker mother, every parent needs a support system to be able to manage their children, housework, and mental health.
Let me at the outset clarify that when I mention ‘work’ here, it includes ANY work. So, it could be the work at home done by a homemaker parent or it could be work in a professional/entrepreneurial environment.
Either way, every parent struggles to find that fine balance between ‘work’ and ‘parenting’, especially with younger kids who still need high emotional and physical support from their caretakers. And not just any balance, but more importantly, balance that lets them keep their own sanity intact!
Paromita advises all women to become financially independent, keep levelling up and have realistic expectations from life and relationships.
Heartfelt, emotional, and imaginative, Paromita Bardoloi’s use of language is fluid and so dreamlike sometimes that some of her posts border on the narration of a fable.
Her words have the power to touch the reader while also delivering some hard hitting truths. Paromita has no pretences in her writing and uses simple words which convey a wealth of meaning in the tradition of oral storytellers – no wonder, Paro is a much loved author on Women’s Web.
This June we celebrate twelve years of Women’s Web, a community built by you – our readers and contributors.
