Lockdown has made co-parenting more common and much easier since both the parents are stuck in their homes with their kids they have started sharing household duties. Mira Rajput, the wife of actor Shahid Kapoor recently talked about their experience of co-parenting their children Misha and Zain together.
In an interview with Kidsstoppress, Mira even talked about the couple’s fights over parenting. “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. Because 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.”
Mira said that she and Shahid have different strengths as parents “He knows that I am more involved on a day-to-day basis but now even that has changed because actually even Shahid is very involved, even on a day-to-day basis. 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,” she added.
Shahid’s film, Jersey which is a remake of the Telugu film of the same name is scheduled for a theatrical release on November 5. Meanwhile, Shahid will also be making his digital debut with an Amazon Prime Video series directed by Raj and DK. The show is said to be a quirky drama-thriller.
