TWINKLE KHANNA SHARES NOTE ON PARENTING
Twinkle Khanna wrote, “Our job is not to give our children perfect childhoods. It is to fill their heads with ideas, to honour their strengths and make them aware, but never underline their weaknesses. It involves loving them madly and throwing a few vegetables down their throats. We need to permanently dedicate a large number of our neurons towards their mosquito bites, bad grades and hurt feelings. And we must do all of this, day after day, without losing sight of everything we are and can be, along with being their mothers. #perfectlyimperfectparenting (sic).”
Twinkle Khanna and Akshay Kumar welcomed Nitara in 2012. The two got married in 2001 and also have a son, Aarav, who was born in 2002.
TWINKLE KHANNA’S HOLIDAY
Twinkle Khanna is an avid social media user and often shares photos and videos on Instagram. She recently shared a photo from a vacation that she took with her family. Posting a picture with her sister, she wrote, ” The best part of this holiday? Meeting my sister after a year and a half. The longest we have been apart in four decades. #KhannaSisters (sic).”
Sharing two photos with Akshay Kumar, she wrote, “Couples on Instagram and then in reality. If we all really smiled at each other like we do when someone pulls out a camera, there would be fewer divorces 🙂 #SmileOkPlease (sic).”
TWINKLE’S WORK FROM HOME POST
A couple of days back, Twinkle Khanna had shared a video on Instagram, pointing out how work from home is tough for parents with kids creating distractions. In the video, Twinkle can be heard asking Nitara, “What exactly are you doing this in my room? Don’t you have any classes now?” But the eight-year-old goes on ignoring her mother.
Twinkle then asked schools to take back the kids for the sake of their poor parents. She wrote, “If it’s not bad enough that there are neighbours drilling through the wall when I am writing, I also have to contend with gymnastics on my bed and a shaking laptop. Can schools please take these children back before the poor parents resort to drinking all day (sic).”
Meanwhile, Twinkle’s books, Mrs Funnybones and The Legend of Lakshmi Prasad are bestsellers.
