9 Celebrity Mums who inspire us

Being a celebrity is hard enough – the spotlight that never fades, trying to maintain a modicum of privacy in the harsh judgmental eyes of those you’ve never met. Then imagine being a celebrity mum – sounds absolutely exhausting! But that’s just one of the reasons we admire these 9 celebrity mums who’re doing a fab job at raising their kids. Khusboo Motihari has it down –1. KajolPicture1Image Courtesy: Daily BhaskarThis gorgeous mom believes that it is essential to discipline children to ensure that they turn out to be good.
The one golden rule that I have in my house is - As Momma Says. What I say is written in stone and there are no explanations thereafter. I am proud of the fact that my kids listen to 70% of the things I say. The other 30% is open for fights and compromises but we deal with it. I think it's a good ratio.

I started off being a pretty strict mom but I find myself easing off, because now I'm not trying to figure Renee out; she tells me. She had a very strict itinerary because it was the only way to get her to understand discipline. 
  1. Sussanne Khan

This will help them to grow up to be confident individuals.

From the beginning, Hrithik and I have believed that children need to be treated as equals and as your friends. Your child is absorbing what is around him, so we take care of what we say in front of the children since before we know it, they are repeating random words back to me! You do not have to be rigid to your child, let him follow his own path - whether it is what career he wants to take up or what religion he wants to practise. Not only will this give him happiness, it will also make him a better human being.

There is one thing that I am really strict about and that is (making sure that they are) brushing teeth twice a day. No matter how tired they are or how late they arrive after attending birthday parties, I make sure that they brush their teeth.

I have taught them to always be welcoming and polite. They (her children) are very down to earth; not spoilt at all! As for parenting decisions, it's a joint effort
Her children have responded well to her parenting and believe that their mom strikes the perfect path of being strict and fun.

Arhaan is nine years old and I am in no hurry to plan things for him. Moreover, I am not a mother who would thrust her hopes and aspirations on her child. He has to decide what he wants to do in life.

You have to do whatever you think is right or wrong and learn along the way. She believes that children often have more wisdom than adults and one should enjoy the lifelong journey with them.
There is no perfect parent. I became a mom when my child was given to me. We say many things that might unconsciously wound the child. A parent has to be conscious about what is good and bad.
Raveena in her youth had set an example when she adopted two girls. Recently, she was also in the news when her youngest daughter, Chaya got married in Goa.
