Let’s be honest; there are a lot of reasons to not like Kim Kardashian. She’s self-absorbed, makes a lot of money for just being her, and she’s not all that bright. I’m kind of sick of seeing Kim on every magazine cover at the grocery checkout (and I haven’t forgotten how she got so famous in the first place). So there’s nothing wrong with finding her public persona irritating. But now that she’s a mother, it’s time to say hands off. Stop criticizing Kim’s parenting skills.
Kim herself actually took a stand recently, responding via Twitter to a random user who apparently accused her of not being a good mother:
It’s not like me to agree with Kim, but she’s 100 percent right. First off, I applaud her for following Kanye’s lead and being a little more private when it comes to sharing her daughter’s life on social media. It’s only a matter of time before the paparazzi are chasing down North, so it makes sense that Kim and Kanye would want to keep those precious baby moments among family. And it’s important for all of us to remember that what a celebrity–or even a normal person–decides to share on social media is a tiny portion of his life. She’s right; the stupid person that looks to Kim’s Instagram, of all places, for evidence of her parenting skills is just silly.
When we see Kim and Kanye out together being fabulous, they could very well have just come from putting their little one down for a nap; there’s no real way to know. People need to understand that a woman who becomes a mother is still a woman. She still wants to have fun, she still wants to enjoy her partner’s company, she still to support his career. If Kim can do all that while being an attentive mother to her daughter, then she actually has a pretty good handle on the mommyhood balancing act. But the bottom line is unless a child seems to be a victim of abuse, it’s nobody’s place to tell his parents how to raise him. How a couple decides to raise their children is a very personal decision.
