Maxim, please tell us how did your acquaintance with your future wife and how quickly did you realize that you met your future mother’s mother?
The history of our acquaintance with Natasha is to some extent dramatic, because we met thanks to … the psychologist Elena Deryabina, whom we had to address due to serious problems that hampered our work. The fact is that after falling on the ice with the top support of my partner Tatyana Totmyanina, as a result of which she got serious injuries, I got a fear that misfortune could happen again. I could not train with full dedication.
Then I was advised to be like a psychologist to get rid of obsessive negative thoughts. At the same time, Natasha experienced difficult times in the profession: she twisted her leg at the rehearsal and was afraid of the scene, so she had to seek help from a psychologist.
When Elena just started working with me, she asked me if there is a close person in my life. (This information she needed for work.) At that time, I was a man free of obligations. Hearing my answer, the psychologist immediately revived and said that she knows an amazing girl, which I really like.
How serious our relationship will be, of course, she could not predict in absentia, but she prepared our first meeting like this: Natasha will come today – an amazing girl … I was intrigued. When, for the first time, I looked Natasha in the eye and said: It’s nice to meet you, my heart flinched. I felt from the first moment that this is really my man.
Since the memorable evening of 2005, we began to meet, and then live together. In principle, in the first months of our life together, I realized that next to me the future mother of my children. But to formalize relations officially, I decided after the Olympic Games, which ended in February 2006.
Do you have any disagreement about the upbringing of your son?
We have a patriarchal family in the best sense of the word. As I said, it will be so, therefore, we practically never have serious disagreements. True, the child is now testing us and Natasha for strength, so we agreed that we are only going to meet him to a certain limit, and then we say no firmly.
And if suddenly the hysterics bursts out due to another not bought machine - just ignore the scandal. Turn away and leave.
So, you are economical in approaching the choice of toys?
I'm not trying to save money on a child. I just want to teach him to discipline, subordination and, of course, from the earliest age teach Artemy that the cars are not pouring from the sky.
Life is now full of temptations, and the sooner the child learns to control and restrain his impulses, the easier it will be for him to live when he grows up.
What, in your opinion, does Papa's education differ from her mother's?
There is unconditional maternal love. A woman adores her child, regardless of how he behaves. And my dad loves his son or daughter more than just with his heart, but with his head.
Therefore, I'm going to compromise in communication with my son with much greater reluctance than Natasha. About which Artemy is well known.
And how do you punish a child if he goes beyond certain limits?
