Hrithik Roshan shared a picture from his family vacation with ex-wife Sussanne Khan and their sons recently, along with a heartfelt message on parenting.

Hrithik Roshan and Sussanne Khan may have long parted ways but their personal differences haven't really impacted their relationship as parents with their sons Hrehaan and Hridhaan. That's exactly what the actor reiterated when he recently shared a picture from one of their family holidays.

The Super 30 actor captioned the picture, showing Sussanne clicking her ex-husband and children by the sea, “Here is Sussanne, my closest friend (also my ex wife) capturing a moment with me and our boys. A moment in itself. It tells a story to our kids. That in a world separated by lines and ideas, it is still possible to be united. And that you can want different things as people and yet stay undivided.”

This, of course, isn't the first time the ex-couple was seen spending time with their children together. Even after getting divorced in 2014, the parents have often been found taking trips together with their sons as a united family.

Divorce or any form of toxicity in the parent's relationship is painful for a child and can have an adverse impact on his or her well-being. You may have often come across Indian couples who, despite conjugal tension, have compelled themselves to stay married just for the sake of their child or for fear of ‘log kya kahenge?’. One can argue about whether that's a healthy option but even if parents get divorced, it doesn't lessen their responsibility towards their children. A child needs both the mother and the father by his or her side. And that's where the concept of co-parenting comes in, something that we learn from Hrithik and Sussanne.
