Talking about ending her eight-year marriage with co-actor Sachin Shroff, Juhi said that it was not an easy decision but one that was important for maintaining love and harmony at home.
“We decided that it was best to part ways because a harmonious atmosphere is a must for a child. She is too young to understand what’s happening in our lives,” she said.
She added that while their daughter Samairra misses her father, she is used to him not being around.
“Sachin’s absence isn’t a new thing for Samairra as we have been separated many times. There have been times when Sachin has not been home and she is used to not seeing him around. However, she does ask about him at times,” said Juhi Parmar on her divorce to a leading national daily.
The couple filed for a divorce last week.
“I do not have a foul temper…”
Let us tell you that rumours of the couple parting ways have been around since 2016 and the reason at that time was being stated as Juhi’s foul temper and mood swings.
“I do not have a foul temper. I’m just a transparent person who calls a spade a spade and I’m proud of being an honest and fearless person in today’s times. People are writing loosely, assuming that it’s the reason for our divorce. It is my request to all of them to stop judging. What happens between two people, only they will know,” said Juhi.
Divorce and kids: Things to keep in mind
Talking to kids about divorce and separation can be a difficult task as you have to keep in mind that it could affect their psyche and minds forever. Here are a few things that you should keep in mind:
- Be open and honest: Telling your kids the truth about what’s going on is extremely important instead of beating around the bush. Reassure them that it was in no way their fault and that you love them irrespective of what has happened.
- Be positive: Being honest with your kids does not require that you expose them to all the negativity and bad mouthing involved. Be careful of what you do and say in front of your child.
- Do not use them: Adults have to learn to talk. If you have something to tell your former spouse, don’t ask your kids to tell them for you; tell them yourself. Also, do not ask them to take sides and choose one parent over another.
- Listen to them: While it’s important to tell them what is happening, it is also equally essential to know what’s going on in their minds. Speak to them and let them pour their heart out to you so that they don’t carry any emotional baggage with them all their lives.
