Addressing concerns about her frequent travels, Vera clarified that even during her time away, she still manages to prioritise her children.

She compared her overall time spent with her kids to that of a typical 9-5 working mother, emphasizing that she surpasses the standard in terms of parental involvement.

“If I decide to travel once every 2 months for say 1-2 weeks, I’m still spending more hours/time with my kids than a 9-5 mom,” Vera reasoned, urging critics to consider the facts before passing judgment.

In conclusion, Vera Sidika urged others not to hastily judge her parenting choices and encouraged them to reflect on their own commitments to their families.
