Mira Rajput spoke to Kidsstoppers about co-parenting with hubby and famed Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor.
The mom of two said that while she was more involved with the tiny tots before, Kapoor has started helping out with day-to-day things since the pandemic began.
The couple wed in 2015, and thereafter became parents to Misha, 4, and Zain, 2.
When asked about co-parenting she said Shahid and her used to quarrel about parenting duties, but that is all over now: "It used to happen. But I am so happy that both of us are in sync. Because I feel co-parenting is really important and it's absolutely essential to keeping yourself and your family happy and sane.
"Once you become one, you are a parent till the rest of your life. It’s an endless job but you don’t need to make it endless without any breaks, and that’s where co-parenting really helps.
"And regardless of the amount of help that you may have, at the end of the day, as parents, you are the ones who structure the family, its dynamics, the values that you want to set in and that’s when I feel like Shahid and I are completely in sync with that.
I think it’s great. During the pandemic, I hope that other fathers have realised what mothers ‘typically’ are supposed to be doing and sharing that load. That balance is good. I am good at one thing, he is good at another thing. Shahid is extremely patient, I am very meticulous. So I am damn good with their routines but he is amazing with meltdowns, so it helps".
