Kim Kardashian Shares How She Handles Her Kids’ Questions About Kanye West Divorce
As the saying goes, ‘experience is the best teacher,’ Kim Kardashian is using her experience during her parents’ divorce to handle her children’s questions about her divorce from their father Kanye West. Just like Kim and Kanye’s marriage, Kim’s parents shared four children before their divorce.
Kim is the second offspring of Kris Jenner and the late Robert Kardashian Sr. And she was around her eldest daughter North West’s age when her parents got divorced.
During a recent interview with GQ, the SKIMS founder shared how her parents revealed to her and her siblings, Kourtney, Khloe, and Robert Kardashian Jr., that they are divorcing.
According to the mom of four, she had never witnessed her parents fight so their divorce was every bit of a shock to them.
She told GQ, “I didn’t foresee any of it. I was in the bath and they called a family meeting. I remember thinking, Please, Lord, don’t let them be getting a divorce. I never had an inkling that it would happen, but I knew that was what they were going to tell us. I felt it.”
Although it was Kris who cheated in the marriage, Kim recalled her parents doing the best they could with the situation. “I did think about how my parents handled it with us. I just remember them being open.” Due to her experience with her divorced parents, she was able to handle her children’s inquisitive minds about her and Kanye’s divorce.
Kim Kardashian — When It Comes To Kim’s Children, She’s ‘Sensitive Because They’re Just Kids’
During the interview, the SKKN By Kim founder told the outlet that the priority is for her children to “feel loved” irrespective of how the marriage turned out because watching your parents go through divorce is never easy no matter what age you are.
Kim said, “Ultimately, what matters is that kids feel loved and heard,” before adding, “You want to be sensitive because they’re just kids, and it’s hard to go through no matter what age.” She continued, “You have to make sure that you only go to a level that they can understand, It’s okay to show a vulnerable side. You never go to a negative side.”
Explaining what she meant by showing some vulnerability, she said, “Just because I know how to manage my stress well doesn’t mean that I don’t feel the emotions. If I’m sad, of course I will cry and feel it.” Kim didn’t stop there, she also told the outlet that parenting can be difficult for her sometimes but whenever it gets to that point, she seeks advice from a therapist.
“I do have a therapist that only deals in child psychology that I talk to to get parenting tips and advice,” said Kim. “Sometimes I feel challenged by parenting. But I have the best group of friends and we talk about everything together, so that to me is therapy.”
