Kim Kardashian is known for her eye-grabbing photos and Kanye West for his provocative lyrics (and new gospel album), so, one might imagine the high-profile couple would be more liberal when it comes to raising their kids. But, as it turns out, these two lay down the law. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's parenting strategy is way more strict that you may expect.
On Nov. 5, Kardashian stopped by The Real and opened up about raising her kids with West (6-year-old North, 3-year-old Saint, 22-month-old Chicago, and 5-month-old baby Psalm). West has become more conservative since reconnecting with his Christian faith and Kardashian talked about how West's newfound religious outlook has affected the way they parent.
"I obviously want to honor him and what he's feeling," she said about finding a happy medium with West. "And he's been going through this life change and it's mostly about the kids."
She continued, "The kids are getting older. He's more cautious about what we have in the house. And we got rid of TVs in the kids' rooms and removed makeup from North's room."
In September 2019, Kardashian told E! she "kind of got in trouble" with West for allowing their 6-year-old to wear makeup, like the bold lip she donned in a 2018 holiday photo. West had "changed all the rules" and now fans know he was serious, having chucked the cosmetics out of North's room.
But Kardashian knows West's parenting style is for the sake of their kids. "And he's had this epiphany of being ... a little bit more strict as a dad and being very forceful on the imagery that's in our household and what they see. I actually agree with it," she said to The Real hosts before adding, "But, I'm always gonna be me. So, we had that discussion and that fight. And, I think, at the end of the day, that's what marriage is."
Later on in the conversation, Kardashian shared more on how West's faith has influenced his parenting style. "Just where he has gone in his life and maybe things that he did a year ago, he probably wouldn't be doing today," she said. "And I love that beautiful journey as well, and I think that's a great example for our kids."
Marriage sounds like it is a lot of work, but Kardashian and West seem to have found a way to make it work for them and their beautiful family. Kimye fans love to see it.
