Balancing act: Maintaining a healthy parent-toddler relationship

Arundhati Swami emphasized the importance of finding the right help to keep children engaged. Aditi, whose husband is in the army, also explained how challenging it could get to know every little thing that happened in her child’s day.

In the next episode which was based on the same topic, Arundhati and Aditi were joined by TV actor Karanvir Bohra, who gave his inputs on the role of dads in parenting today.
