Ayushmann also shared his views on how parents should deal with children in the digital age

Children are increasingly engaging with the internet from a young age, influencing various aspects of their lives, including education, friendships, and entertainment. As adults, it's crucial to establish trust with our children—a mutual bond where they feel comfortable turning to us for support, and we trust them when they seek help. Patience, trust, and intentionality are essential as we navigate these issues. If necessary, we should be open to seeking professional assistance for our children without worrying about societal stigma.
