Sameera Reddy says she believes that kids should get equal time from both their parents in the early years of their lives.

Despite her immense success, actress Sameera Reddy took a break from her job as an actress soon after giving birth. The actress chose to do so as she believes that kids should get equal time from both their parents in the early years of their lives. In a recent interview, Sameera also said, “ When it comes to equal parenting, there are no set mother-father rules or duties. Diapering, feeding, storytelling, bath time, nap time, playtime, all are shared equally between both parents and in turn positively contribute towards a healthy, happy baby. So yes, I believe there is so much power in equal parenting and it definitely is rewarding. This is why I stand with #ItTakes2 campaign and urge more parents out there to take a positive step for their little ones and be equal partners in parenting.”

 
The actress also extended her support for the cause of parental leave for fathers who want to take care of their kids after their birth. She said, "I believe paternity leave should be normalised. As much as a mother and child bond is important, the same goes for father-and-baby bonding. Paternity leave not only deepens that but also encourages them to be more involved and engage with their little ones. When both parents are equally involved with their kids, it really transforms how kids grow and develop.”
