Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Only Give North “Little Time” To Play?
Are Kim Kardashian and Kanye West too controlling as parents? A report claims the couple is keeping daughter North “too busy,” and only giving her “little time to play.” But this story is more sensational than truthful.
Earlier this week, Kardashian proudly posted a photo to Snapchat showing North getting a violin lesson. It was an adorable snapshot, and likely a valuable learning experience. But that’s now how OK! decided to portray the moment.
Instead, the outlet tried to paint North as an overworked 3-year-old who doesn’t have enough time to be a kid. “She deserves the downtime after the all the extracurricular activities her parents Kim Kardashian and Kanye West put in her schedule,” the story says. After acknowledging North looked “cute,” the magazine says “she looked a bit happier when the lesson was over, and she got to play with her mom’s Snapchat filters!”
“That’s likely because little Nori is doing way too much,” claims the magazine, which cites sister publication RadarOnline as claiming the tot has “several activities on her plate, including ballet, tap dancing, origami lessons, fencing, soccer, karate, and French classes.” A supposed “source” is quoted as saying, “Her parents want her to try everything, and think North needs constant stimulation. They don’t seem to get that toddlers need downtime, and North doesn’t get enough!”
OK! opines that North’s activity list “sounds draining,” and further speculates, “Maybe that’s why she can often be seen scowling like her dad Yeezy!” Of course, the real reasons North sometimes looks upset in public is because (A) she’s a toddler, and toddlers cry, and (B) she and her famous parents are usually being followed and hounded by paparazzi.
North lives a privileged, active and full life. She is luckier than the average child, and her parents are making sure her experiences are rich and educational. But it is completely wrong to make it seem like she’s being worked too hard. In fact, just like Kardashian posted about the violin lesson, she also often shares photos and videos on social media of North playing around and goofing off.
Of course, this is the same outlet that actually demanded Kardashian start showing Saint West’s face in photos, and called Mila Kunis a “bad mom” for giving her daughter ice cream. So, sadly, Gossip Cop isn’t surprised to see another article bizarrely and wrongly fixated on a child.
