1. No Differentiating Between Pinks And Blues!
Well hate gender bias but let's be honest, the pink and blue clothes and toys never fade away from our baby dictionary. However, here's what SRK has to teach you about stereotyping. Father of two sons and a daughter, SRK makes sure there is no stereotyping in the household. His boys are instructed to do as much work as his daughter. In fact, he also adds that the boys are not allowed to roam without a shirt at home (just like women never do) and are taught to respect women at home even when it comes to small things like fetching a plate. Respect for women is one thing King Khan is very particular about! "I tell Aryan and even AbRam never hurt a woman. If you do, I'll behead you", adds the actor.

2. Encourage Your Child To Read
In this tech-savvy generation, there is very little reading happening in households. Gone are the days when children had a library membership. However, a voracious reader himself, SRK is leaving no stone unturned to imbibe the habit in his kids. And no, using a tablet or a kindle! The actor has stocked up a sea of books that he wants his kids to finish reading before they go out to do anything professional.

3. Give Them Freedom, But Keep A Check!
Being an actor has not deterred the star from giving his kids the best education. Studies come before anything else for SRK and that is precisely what he is teaching his little princess too! Suhana is keen on acting, just like her father, and even rehearses her plays with SRK. However, the doting father is also a strict disciplinarian and has made it very clear that she has all the freedom to pursue acting, but only after completing her studies.
