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.

I applaud you for doing this, Kajol.
You are an excellent mother. I agree that the early years are the learning years. Kids are a lot smarter than we think, they pick up on everything. They may not show it right away but whatever they see on TV is stuck inside their heads.
I have a friend who invites me and a bunch of other friends to watch Game of Thrones at his house with his family. It's a lot of fun because we get together and have dinner. But the thing that really disturbs me is that he and his wife allowed their children (9 and 11) to sit with us and watch the show. This show is clearly not for youngsters as it has a lot of nudity, sex, and gruesome violence.
I told them that its wrong to show them that kind of show, that it is intended for a mature audience but they were ignoring me until the 9 year-old boy smacked his brother in the face with a broom while playing characters of the show and made him bleed.
