“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.

​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.

Esha’s daughters love watching cartoons so they get to do it in a set screen-time.
