Actor Raveena Tandon says that she has never pampered her kids silly. The 41-year-old, who has adopted daughters Chhaya and Pooja, has two biological children Ranbirvardhan and Rasha with husband Anil Thadani, too. She says that she has never talked down to her children.

“I have always been very transparent with my kids. Even with the smaller ones, I never baby-talked them. I never sugar coated anything for my kids. I spoke to them about the mistakes I made, so that they don’t make the same mistakes,” she says, adding, “Very often parents say ‘no’ to things without understanding the need to explain and communicate the reason for their decision with their children. This, I feel, is not correct. No matter the age, kids are never too young to not understand and reason,” she says.

She shares a unique relationship with all her kids and is proud of them. “Pooja is like my best friend. We hardly have an 11 year difference. Our relationship is so different,” she says, adding, “I am so proud of the younger ones too. Chhaya has shown excellence in academics and was the youngest member when she joined Jet Airways. The same is the case with Rasha and Ranbir. Rasha got getting an award of excellence at her school last year and Ranbir got it this year. I am so proud of all of them.”
