  • Kim Kardashian strives to hide her emotions related to Kanye West from their children, aiming to shield them from inappropriate information and explanations.
  • Kim attributes her ability to maintain composure to her late father, Robert Kardashian, who taught her the value of grace, calmness, and collectedness even during moments of frustration.
  • Despite their divorce, Kim and Kanye have reunited for family events, including their daughter North spending time with Kanye and his new wife, Bianca Censori.

Even though Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been legally separated for almost six months now, they stay connected via their four children. Kim, now 42 years old, admits that their four sets of innocent ears are listening closely when Kanye, now 46, participates in questionable behaviors. She spoke about her attempts to keep her cool around their children in a recent interview with Vogue Italia, even when Kanye’s behaviors make her angry.

Shielding Her Children: Kim’s Approach to Emotional Transparency

Kim stressed the need to not let her children in on her true feelings towards Kanye, which might be harmful to their development. She plans to be ready to express her emotions when the time comes, rather than depending on the patronizing comment, “You’ll understand when you’re older.” With conviction, Kim said, “I don’t want to be that person.”

Kim stressed, however, that she allows herself to express sensitivity and cry when her emotional condition is tied to other factors her children can grasp. She remembers with fondness the Christmas morning her mother gave her a dollhouse as a present.

She broke down in front of her kids, who didn’t understand the importance of her emotional outburst of nostalgia. Kim used the opportunity to elaborate on the significance, recalling how much she had loved playing with a dollhouse much like it when she was a youngster at her father’s home.

The Influence of Her Father: Robert Kardashian’s Lessons in Grace

Kim says her late father, Robert Kardashian, taught her to keep her cool under pressure. She spoke highly of the lessons in poise, composure, and collectedness she gleaned from seeing him operate on individual instances.

Even when he was upset, he would get his kids together and say, “Hey, come over here, we need to talk about this.” Kim, on the other hand, fondly recalled her mother’s irritation at forgetting their names and the numerous sibling names she lovingly called them by.

A New Chapter: Co-Parenting and Family Reunions

Kanye West has been married to Australian architect Bianca Censori, 28, after their divorce was completed in November 2022. Kim and Kanye have seen each other at family functions despite their divorce. North West, the oldest child, stayed with her father and new stepmother in Los Angeles not too long ago.

Kim’s Reflection on Co-Parenting Challenges

Kim spoke about her experiences co-parenting with Kanye on the season 3 premiere of The Kardashians. She stressed her resolve to save her kids from harm by not airing her grievances in open forums.

Kim said, “I always will feel that way,” indicating her unwavering dedication to this stance. Oh, God, if only they knew. That’s simply not something I’d do to my own children. It’s insane, however.

Kim’s attitude has also changed significantly, as seen by the fact that she is no longer able to quietly comfort others about Kanye’s conduct. She discussed the challenges of sharing a family with a former loved one whose personality has changed so drastically.

After thinking back on the times she had secretly defended him, she said, “I don’t have that energy [anymore]. Seeing a close friend or family member transforms into someone who bears no resemblance to their former self is one of life’s most trying experiences.


Kim Kardashian exhibits her commitment to providing a safe and secure home by deftly negotiating the difficulties of co-parenting and shielding her children from the intricacies of her own emotions.
