Bollywood actor Tusshar Kapoor is a loving, caring and affectionate dad. He is a single parent as he welcomed the love of his life Laksshya through surrogacy. Nowadays, the actors are free as all the shootings have been called off. They all are enjoying time with their families and kids.
In the wake of being self-quarantined, Ekta Kapoor’s brother Tusshar has homeschooled Laksshya. During a special media talk, the actor has shared his views on the challenges of teaching his three and a half-year-old son at home and managing work in the time of Corona.
When media people asked the actor about his prime concern and priority during the on-going outbreak being a single parent, he replied, “My prime concern has been to manage my work life and my son’s homeschooling. He will be tutored by me at home with assignments that are being assigned to us through email. So I have more work being at home. While people are saying that they get bored at home, I have more things to do. Managing my work and my son’s schooling is a challenge. I am trying to make the most of it and as enjoyable as possible.”
When asked whether Lakshya knows about the ongoing outburst or not, the actor said, “Laksshya hasn’t understood the gravity of the situation but I have told him that everything is closed because people are falling sick and there is a virus. He knows that there is some sort of problem but he doesn’t understand the science behind it. He is only three and a half years old. He has adjusted to the fact that there is no school. We are going to be having spring break from Friday, so he has missed just five days of school.”
Tusshar also shared the pros and cons of homeschooling as a single parent. He said that the kid took around a day to adapt to homeschooling.
He has also shared a piece of advice for the parents who are presently homeschooling their children. He said, “The only advice I want to give parents is that we have always craved for some stress-buster and a break from our daily humdrum and chaos that we were getting sucked into. I think this is the much-needed breather and it is also a good dose of working from home. Watching films on TV or online can substitute for all the things we used to do outside the house. I think this can be useful for our health and happiness and can make us stronger, more flexible and prepare for the world when it begins.”
