Everyone knows the Kardashians. Receiving acclaim and criticism alike the Kardashians do many things to build their brand that ordinary families don’t. And part of being born as a Kardashian is getting used to being in the spotlight at an early age. So their every move gets analyzed by the media. How similar are the Kardashian children’s lives to yours?
Here are 10 things Kardashian children are forced to do.
1. Hand me downs
All younger children remember wearing their elder siblings’ clothes. And you’d think the Kardashian children would escape this. But despite decking them out in the latest fashions and brands the sisters still dress their children in hand me down clothes. In fact, Kourtney has been known to dress her daughter Penelope in her elder son Mason’s old pajamas, blazers and suits.
There are tonnes of different parenting techniques out there. And different people use different strategies to raise their children. For example, co-sleeping is when parents make sure their children sleep in the same bed as them to encourage bonding. Kourtney especially is in huge favor of this and speaks openly about how all her children sleep together in her bed.
On the other hand, Kim Kardashian believes that sleeping in their own beds and rooms will make her children more independent.
3. iPads and gadgets
You assume that the Kardashian children get all the latest toys and gadgets to play with. And do so whenever they. But, the truth is both Kim and Kourtney Kardashian closely monitor how much time their children are spending on their devices. This includes no more than 30 minutes online a day, no TV while eating and putting away all devices a few hours before bedtime.
4. Healthy Eating
All the Kardashians keep themselves on strict healthy diets. And this passes onto their children. Their food is prepared in-house with a special effort to keep everything organic and preservative free. Kim doesn’t allow North to eat junk food. Also, Kourtney’s children don’t eat gluten or dairy products.
5. Be on Keeping Up with the Kardashians
Since their TV show is the Kardashian’s claim to fame all the children and forced to be on the show. And that isn’t always easy. Kourtney’s children are homeschooled because the show’s schedule doesn’t allow for traditional regular schooling. And while Kanye didn’t originally want his children to be on the show, his concerns were brushed aside with Kim having the final say.
6. Unique Names
Naming their children creatively is a Kardashian trademark. With names like North West, Chicago, True they certainly stand out from the norm. While most people prefer more regular names the Kardashians are responsible for building even their children into a brand.
While none of the Kardashians have publicly admitted to having help with childcare. And you certainly won’t see any nannies on their show. Public opinion and common sense say that with their business schedules Kylie, Kourtney and Kim must have at least a few nannies to help shoulder the load.
8. Ban on Plastic
Out of all the Kardashians, Kourtney is the most extreme when it comes to the restrictions on what is acceptable in her house. Both Wifi and microwaves don’t make the list as the young mom believes the devices can lead to cancer. Another banned item is plastic. Kourtney thinks BPA in plastic may lead to cancer or diabetes. So her children only use stainless steel items.
9. Homemade Baby Food
When her children were young Kourtney didn’t feed them prepackaged baby food. And this isn’t an unusual practice. A lot of mothers – untrusting of baby food – choose to steam vegetables and fruits to feed their toddlers. Since Kourtney has kept her children on a dairy free and gluten free diet she makes her own baby food. Now fans wonder whether her sister Kylie will do the same?
10. Drinking Smoothies
Most children eventually start drinking colas and carbonated drinks. But Kourtney doesn’t allow this. Instead, her children drink healthy fruit smoothies that satisfy their sugar cravings.
