Says famous television actor and anchor Shweta TiwariA Tanuja M Shweta Tiwari who is set to show off her dance skills on Jhalak Dikhla Jaa Season 6, is currently seen playing mom to two teenage kids on Sony's 'Parvarish'. In real life too Shweta is a responsible mother to Palak, her 12 year old daughter. Talking about their relationship, Shweta says, "I am shooting for almost 16 hours and sometimes end up meeting my daughter only for half an hour in the night or then I wake up early in the morning to see her off to school. And that is the reason I also am a little soft on her because I know she misses me and it is not right to make her feel sad even in that little time that I am with her." She also misses out on Palak's important days and feels guilty at times, "There are times when Palak has her school functions and I cannot attend those and that time I do feel guilty but I am helpless because of my working, single mother status. At times like these my mother and brother fill in my place and Palak never complains about it but I feel that she must be missing me." Talking about her mother Shweta says that when she herself is busy working outside the house, it is her mother who keeps her daughter, Palak company and takes care of all her needs, "Nobody but my mother is the best person to take care of my daughter, Palak. When I am on the sets I keep in touch with my mother to know what is happening with Palak and Palak too calls me often to tell me what she is upto." Her mother is her biggest support adds Shweta, "When I was a teenager I was a rebel and never would listen to what my mom told me to do so she used to talk to me about it over couple of days and then when I was alone I would ponder over it, realise my mistakes and then apologise to her." Now the same happens with her daughter Palak says Shweta, "Now when there are special days like my birthday or Mother's Day, Palak writes long letters to me in which she talks about how much she loves me and how much she misses me. She also writes about the mistakes that she has made and says sorry if she has made me sad. She is good at art and craft and so makes these little cards for me and is very creative. Those things make me very emotional." A mother-daughter relationship is unmatchable says Shweta, "I feel a mother should always be there for her daughter as any girl needs her mom the most to take care of her, to make her feel secure and guide her properly."
