Mumbai, November 13, 2016: Bollywood actor Aamir Khan believes that all parents should support their children to achieve their dreams instead of pressurising to follow a path against their will.

Citing his upcoming film “Dangal”, directed by Nitesh Tiwari, which is based on father-daughter relationship and a father preparing his daughters to achieve his unfulfilled dreams, Aamir said: “I do not believe in such things. As a father, I always support my kids to do whatever they wish to do. I believe that parents should support their kids to achieve their dreams rather than decide it for them. However, the film is not based on my life!”

“Though in the beginning children go through an indecisive phase, instead of pressurising them to pursue their unfulfilled dreams, parents should help them to find a way to decide a career path. I was quite rebellious when I decided to become an actor,” he said at event to launch a song of “Dangal”.

Aamir, a father of three children, said that he encourages the individuality of his kids and is not very strict with them.

The film, which celebrates the gender equality through a sport like wrestling, is adding the colour to the changing scenario of the society as well as the film industry, he said.

“It is a great change of perception and celebration of gender equality. This year two women won Olympic medals for our country and made us proud! Personally, neither I look at girls and boys differently nor I have grown up seeing such difference in our household. Both my sisters were treated with equality while growing up,” said Aamir.

Aamir and Tiwari, who both made children-based films earlier – “Taare Zameen Par” and “Bhoothnath Returns” respectively – said that in Bollywood, children’s film is an unexplored genre that needs encouragement.

“I would be more than happy to see that more filmmakers are doing children’s films. The kinds of films kids are watching are not appropriate for them. Since they do not have many options, they are watching them. I wish people were making more family films like ‘Dangal’,” said Aamir.

Good communication with parents promotes in a child the development of a brain network involved in the processing of rewards and other stimuli that, in turn, protects against the over consumption of food, alcohol and drugs, says a study.

The findings of the 14-year study, published in the journal Biological Psychiatry, suggest that robust parent-child communication has an impact on health behaviour in adulthood.

“These findings highlight the value of prevention and intervention efforts targeting parenting skills in childhood as a means to foster long-term, adaptive neurocognitive development,” said study co-author Allen Barton from the University of Georgia in the US.

In 2001, the research team began a longitudinal study involving rural US families with a child 11 years of age.

Between the ages of 11 and 13 years, participants reported on interactions with their parents, including the frequency of discussions and arguing.

When the participants reached 25 years of age, a sub-sample of nearly 100 participants was recruited from the larger study to take part in a neuroimaging session that measured brain activity using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).

Specifically, the researchers used fMRI to study a network of brain connections called the anterior salience network (ASN). The participants also answered questions about harmful alcohol use and emotional eating at age 25.

Greater parent-child communication in early adolescence predicted greater connectivity of the ASN at age 25, the researcher said.

Greater ASN connectivity was, in turn, associated with lower harmful alcohol use and emotional eating at age 25, they added.  (IANS)
