Though millions of people are obsessed with Kourtney Kardashian and her siblings, they are even more obsessed with her kids. Together with her ex-boyfriend, Scott Disick, the 41-year-old has three young kids. Her eldest son, Mason Disick is 10 years old. Meanwhile, her only daughter, Penelope Disick, will soon celebrate her eighth birthday. Finally, her youngest child, Reign Disick, is five years old.
Kardashian has long-since been vocal about how much she enjoys being a mom. In fact, one of the biggest reasons that she wanted to leave her family’s hit reality TV show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, is to spend more time with her kids. As all three of her kids are young and impressionable, she wants to be with them as often as possible.
Kourtney Kardashian shared what she’s teaching her kids
Recently, Kardashian took to her Instagram page to share what she’s teaching her kids. After sharing a picture of herself with her son Mason, she wrote a caption about her responsibilities as a mother. Given the state of the union, the 41-year-old felt it prudent to share that she’s teaching them about the dangers of racism. The Poosh owner continued on to state that she also teachers her children about their whiteness so that they can understand the inherent rights and privileges it affords them. Kardashian also urged other mothers to continue educating their children about said issues.
Of course, Kardashian’s post received mixed reviews. Some people complimented the reality TV star for being a good mother. Others were pleased that she was using her immense platform to talk about important issues. However, some critics felt the need to call out the past behavior of Kardashian’s kids and used it as evidence that she wouldn’t be able to talk to them about anything of substance.
Instagram users are convinced Mason, Penelope, and Reign don’t listen to their mom
“Her kids be out here smacking their babysitters. Mason reveals everything about their family situations on IG. I don’t wanna hear it Kourt,” one person commented on Instagram. “Ma’am they don’t even respect the nanny, ?” another person stated, citing the issues that Kardashian has had with keeping nannies in the past. “They don’t even listen to her, so I know they not going to listen to her about racism,” another person chimed in.

Kardashian herself has admitted that there are times when her kids aren’t interested in what she has to say. In a recent interview with Health Magazine, the 41-year-old revealed how she managed to cope when her children are failing to listen to her.
Kardashian occasionally struggles to parent three kids of a young age
“I have my moments! When no one is listening to me, that causes a moment. Especially if you’re on a time crunch and trying to get out the door. I don’t always have as much patience as I’d like. But I try to remember, ‘It’s not that big of a deal, it’s fine; we’re going to get there.’ It’s about letting go of the plan—it doesn’t always work out!” Kardashian revealed.
Clearly, Kardashian sometimes struggles to get control of her kids just like any other parent. All we can do is hope that she is actually having those conversations about racism and privilege with her kids on a consistent basis. Furthermore, we hope that she continues to use her considerable wealth and fame to fight against injustices long after the social media hype dies down.
