Parenting different than Hema Malini
In a recent interview, Deol revealed that her parenting style is quite different from that of her mom Hema Malini.
Hema Malini is ‘more chill’
“My parenting is quite different from my mum’s. I think I am more like my (maternal) grandmum. My mum’s style is more chill,” she said.
Esha says she is more ‘possessive’
“She (Esha’s nani) was definitely a little stricter than my mother. I am a bit more possessive too,” she shared.
Why being strict is important
“I also think it’s important to be a little strict when required so they learn to be disciplined and have respect for other human beings,” Esha said.

“But overall, I am very easy with them. I am all for a rooted, simple upbringing,” she added.
Dealing with tantrums
Esha allows her kids to throw tantrums when they do so, and when they are done, she explains to them better ways of dealing with their troubled feelings.
Giving them choice
“I think giving your child space and allowing them to learn and make choices from a very young age is important in shaping them into who they are going to become,” she shared.
Freedom to choose their career
She added, “When they grow up, they should be confident and make their own choices and pursue their dream careers.”
Letting them eat what they want
While her girls usually eat home-cooked food, she lets them eat chocolates and other foods, especially on birthday parties and holidays.
Time for TV
Esha’s daughters love watching cartoons so they get to do it in a set screen-time.
