Sameera Reddy On Coping With Two Young Children During Lockdown



Former actress Sameera Reddy has been trying to keep two very young children  aged 5 years and  9 month, respectively,  entertained  indoors for  more than  a month   during the  lockdown.

But now Sameera and  her husband Akshai’s nerves are  on  edge.

Says Sameera, “I have a 9 month and 5 yr old .I fact  it’s  our son’s birthday soon and  we’re making him understand why he can have  a party but  no friends over.  Both my children keep me on my toes and I think the most important thing is to make them feel safe and secure . It is a very unique situation so it’s best to make sure they feel protected . Secondly, would be to get them mentally prepared for the new normal.  Things will be different after the lockdown and they should not feel stifled or scaredIt’s getting more difficult every day.”

Sameera and  her husband  are  sharing responsibilities  towards their children in lockdown.   “We are  going  nuts handling the  children, the  household  work  and then I’ve my own work.We  are  coping as  best as we  can. But  you can imagine how difficult  it is to keep  two  young children   engaged indoors 24/7.  My  little  daughter  Nyra is just nine months old and she needs  my  full attention. My  son Hans is also coping with his confinement  as  best as he can. But how  are children expected  to comprehend  the situation?He wants  to go  out to visit his  grandparents.  How do  we explain to him why he can’t?”

But there is the silver lining.

Says Sameera, “The one good thing that has happened  during the lockdown is that we are in this together  as a family. My husband is a big help  in the  house. He  works  with my son on homeschool plus  he has his own work to attend  to. My mother-in-law  is a  rock star. I don’t know  what I’d do without her.  So yes,we’ve never felt closer as  a family. Having said that, I must say  it’s  such  a crazy situation.What to do?”
