I keep an eye on what my kids watch: Kajol

New Delhi: Actress Kajol, who has been named `Mighty Mother` ahead of Mother`s Day, says she is careful about the content that her children watch on the small screen as these are "learning years" for them.

Green Gold Animation, the makers of children`s shows ‘Chhota Bheem’ and ‘Mighty Raju’ have decided to honour Kajol with a `Mighty Mother` award ahead of Mother`s Day, which falls Sunday.

One to give foremost priority to her children - daughter Nysa, 11, and son Yug, three, Kajol tends to watch the two shows with her children once in a while.

"As a mother, you can’t help but be inducted into this world. I feel it begins with curiosity as to what is your child watching followed by a bit of the motherly instinct to monitor and finally you are a part of their world," said the 39-year-old, who is married to actor Ajay Devgn.

While admitting that once parents know what these characters are upto, it enables them to have full-length conversations about them.

"I’m mostly around them when they are watching TV. I may be doing my stuff but I keep an eye on what they are watching and in the process do end up watching a couple of episodes (of the shows)," she said.

"I also have a dos and don`ts channel and programme list, so even if I`m not by them, they are well monitored. I believe as a parent one has to be strict and to lay down certain guidelines. So my kids are well within the boundaries that I set for them."

"These are learning years for them, they pick up fast and will retain what they learn now. So, in a way its sensitive age, so you have to be very careful of what is watched or read," said the doting mother.

Now, a film titled ‘Mighty Raju: Rio Calling’, inspired by the show, is ready. In spirit, Kajol is quite excited about it.
