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. 🙂

If her MIL had accepted her with some affection, wouldn't they have built a mutually happier relationship by now?
The incident took place ten years ago.
Smita could visit her mother only in summers when her daughter had school holidays. Her daughter also enjoyed meeting her Nani, and both of them had done their reservations for a week. A month before their visit, her husband told her, “My mom is coming for 4-5 months!”
Smita shuddered. She knew the repercussions. She would have to hear sarcastic comments from her mother-in-law for visiting her mother. She may make these comments directly only a bit, but her servants would be flooded with the words, “How horrible she is! She leaves me and goes!”
Are we so swayed by star power and the 'entertainment' quotient of cinema that satisfies our carnal instincts that we choose to ignore our own subconscious mind which always knows what is right and what is wrong?
Trigger Warning: This has graphic descriptions of violence and may be triggering to survivors and victims of violence.
Do you remember your first exposure to an extremely violent act or the aftermath of a violent act?
I am pretty sure for most of us it would be through cinema. But I remember very vividly my first exposure to aftermath of an unbelievably grotesque violent act in real life. It was as a student at a Dental College and Hospital.
