Madhoo's parenting tips

Mumbai, Nov 29 (IANS) Actress Madhoo, a mother to daughters Ameyaa and Keia, is in favour of providing children freedom in their growing years.

"The way we treat our children, I feel we don't allow them to grow. We should give them full freedom. If they have any talent, any inclination or any interest, it should be encouraged," the 40−year−old said here.

She spoke at the launch Wednesday of the book "Heirs of Catriona", written by a 12−year−old Anusha Subramanian.

"Heirs of Catriona" is the first of the four−book Catriona Series. Singer Suchitra Krishnamurthy was also present at the event.
