Khloé Kardashian may be part of one of the most famous families around but the American media personality has quite clear her goals and has decided, in a very smart move, that she needs to discuss with her kid such intrinsic topics like race and privileged life in order to not grow up in a bubble.
The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star revealed during the "Role Model" podcast that she is working on educating herself about how she will approach conversations about race with her 3-year-old daughter True, but what she already knows is that she wants the child to live in a world surrounded by love, to be still very aware that she is a woman of color. "I will be always learning and trying to do the best I can do as being her mom, but I'm obviously not a woman of color. But I do want her to be exposed to as much inclusion, but variety as possible," Kardashian said.
Khloé Kardashian shares the co-parenting duties with Tristan Thompson. “I don't want her living in a bubble thinking, you know” Khloe continued, signaling that the reason why this happens is that she acknowledges that they have more privileges than most people. “because we do have this very privileged life and I want her to know all types of life and all types of living and be very aware of that."
The mogul also notes that, while some parents get uncomfortable talking about such hard topics with their kids, she is not one of those and is working hard and putting all the effort she can to make this a positive experience. “I know some people get uncomfortable with talking to their kids about race," she said, "or they think, 'Oh we live in a bubble. We never have to address that my child is Black.' I mean, of course, you do! You're only setting them up I think for failure if you don't talk about race and probably the things that they're going to endure once they're in, quote, the real world."
Khloé also added that she does not want to expose her daughter at such a young age and instead let her know little by little "It's our duty as parents to really expose them while they have the safety and security of their parents to communicate that with them and still guide them and help them instead of just letting them out into the free world and now they're like, 'Wait, I didn't hear about this, I had no idea this was what real life was.'" The reality star added that the “beauty of having some of my sisters in the same situation” means they can have conversations about race together.” In fact, Kim Kardashian, who has four kids with Kanye West, said back in 2017 that she is “very conscious” of raising biracial children.
