These daddies follow some special parenting mantras (And we are impressed!)

If you thought mothers knew it all about parenting, think again! These Bollywood daddies have wowed us onscreen fathers, but they did not shrug their shoulders when it came to real life either. From babysitting to going on fun holidays and giving their kids the right guidance, these daddies have been there and done all that a mother does.

Here’s a look at some of the best parenting lessons SRK, Saif and other B-town fathers have taught us!

SRK – Make friends with your kids!

I don’t have many friends. My kids are my closest allies, best friends. And I can share all my deep, dark secrets, my happiest or saddest moments with them.

King Khan is truly a friend to his kids and lets them take their own decisions. Being born in an inter-faith marriage, SRK has given his kids enough space to choose what they want to believe in or follow and has no qualms in doing so. That apart, he is a doting dad to all his three kids! While his little master AbRam enjoys the privilege of accompanying him everywhere and anywhere, Suhana and Aryan have daddy’s support and guidance as their biggest backing. Be it reading bedtime stories to AbRam, cheering Suhana at her dance performance or getting in shape for Aryan, SRK has done it all with a big, broad smile!

Abhishek Bachchan – Simplicity is thy rule!

“As a parent, it is not about material goods. The gifts a parent can give the children are love, care, education, and understanding. These are the most important gifts any parent can give.”

Abhishek likes to keep it simple and sweet when it comes to parenting. However, he does not step back from treating his dear daughter to some truly exorbitant gifts too. Remember the villa he bought when Aaradhya turned 15 months? That aside, Abhishek firmly believes that taking care of the child is not just the mother’s role.

Saif Ali Khan – Balance is key!

"The most important thing in life is balance. I’m never really happy until I spend time with my children and my wife."

It's not easy to be a Pataudi, you see! Saif always has his hands full of work and his new family life with Kareena to keep him busy, but the doting daddy does not shrug his shoulders when it comes to doting on his kids. Be it planning a fun holiday with Taimur and Kareena, keeping a watch on Sara’s career decisions or guiding Ibrahim, Saif has managed to strike a perfect balance and we have no qualms.

Akshay Kumar- Express your emotions to your kids

“There is no greater feeling in life than holding your baby for the first time. I wish I could express more about how HAPPY I am right now, but I’m at a loss of words.”

One needs no proof that Akshay is a doting daddy. On one hand, he lets his wife go on a solo holiday and is more than happy to babysit his little daughter Nitara and on the other Aarav gets all the love and guidance from daddy dearest, be it martial arts, charity causes or other sports. And, that said, this rough and tough daddy has an emotional side when it comes to his kids and does not shy away from expressing the same.

Riteish Deshmukh – Make your kid feel special!

Apart from being a loving husband to Genelia, Riteish is a doting daddy to his kids and his Instagram pictures are proof enough! Riteish’s younger son Rahyl turned one recently and daddy dearest even baked a cake for him. Isn’t that cute?
