HER mum is famously coined the family ‘Momager’ but when it comes to parenting, Kim Kardashian seems to have taken a page out of Kris Jenner’s book too.
She’s ‘headmistress’ strict, there’s tight rules and there’s even a ‘manual’ for the fleet of nannies who help them on a 24-hour basis.
But the rules aren’t just for the kids.
A source close to the mum-of-four has revealed their team of SIX nannies have to agree to a long list of dos and don’ts before they join the household and rarely are allowed to even talk to Kanye.
But what is day-to-day life really like for North, seven, Saint, four, Chicago, two and one-year-old Psalm? Fabulous investigated…
Kim’s ‘headmistress’ parenting style
We’ve heard of ‘tiger mums’ but when in comes to the Kimye household, Kim is said to be more like a ‘headmistress’ always referring to the rules, the schedule and the expectations of her nannies and kids
“She runs a very 'tight ship',” our source says, “with no deviations, no exceptions to the rules and often at the expense of fun.
“For her, it's all about instilling the right values in her kids, their development, always focused on their futures, their 'brands', their talents, but little time to actually play with them or enjoy them.”
But would she get her hands dirty to make sure these rules are working? No!
“She hires 'the best' people to play with them, and while she loves them dearly, they know that 'mummy has to work' and 'mummy can't be interrupted' ever.
“Kim loves her kids, of course and she also loves creating the 'perfect' moments. When she spends time with them it involves taking lots of selfies or they have “cuddle time”.
“She makes sure she has 15-minutes one-on-one time with each kid per day but even that is scheduled and has to fit around her diary and phone calls.”
Speaking about spending more time with her brood during the coronavirus lockdown Kim said: “Being at home with four kids – if I ever thought for a minute that I wanted another one, that is out the door. It's really tough. It's really tough."
A nanny for every need
We all know Kim, 39, and Kanye, 43, are busy trying to maintain their billionaire couple status, but with a joint net worth of £1.6 billion comes the luxury of having someone to sort out all your needs.
According to our insider, Kim and Kanye employ a 'fleet' of nannies to look after their kids, with a variety of responsibilities and titles.
“On a daily basis there are four nannies (from a team of 6), along with the various tutors, chef, housekeeper and driver to attend the kids needs,” they say.
“There is the head nanny, who manages everything and all the other kiddie staff, like the language tutors, the music staff, the stylist, the personal trainer and runs the diaries of each of the four kids.
“But she is the only one allowed to communicate with Kanye,” the insider adds.
Kim makes sure she has 15-minutes one-on-one time with each kid per day but even that is scheduled and has to fit around her diary and phone calls.
“Kim tends to look after all the children’s ‘staff’ so he hates when the nannies talk to him. He demands that the info on the kids only comes from Kim or the head nanny.”
On a 24-hour-basis Kim and Kanye’s kids always have two nannies in the house to help them out day or night.
But while the kids are learning new rules, the nannies have strict guidelines to follow too.
“No nanny is allowed a mobile phone when they’re working – it's a fireable offence to be caught with one,” our source said.
“There is also a manual, a very thick one, for the nannies about Kim's rules, and how they treat and interact with the kids. And with Kim and Kanye. It's a little OTT.
“Everyday is planned from the moment they wake up to the moment they go to sleep.”
The picture perfect ‘rules’
While all the Kardashian’s are now mums apart from Kendall, Kim is without doubt the strictest parent, our insider says.
“All the sisters are high maintenance when it comes to the kids and what's allowed and what's not, but it's Kim who is the strictest – mainly because of the influence of Kanye.”
“Kim has a very ridiculous set of rules about what's allowed, what's not, how the kids are to behave, to eat, what they’re allowed to wear, to do… it's regimented down to every detail.”
But this tight ship doesn’t mean Kim and Kanye’s approach to parenting is faultless.
“Yes, the rules are written down in black and white but saying that, her kids are not very well behaved they tend to act up a lot,” our source adds.
“Kim is ridiculously strict over their clothes – and how they are not to get them dirty, or for any of the kids to get dirty – so they get told off for dirtying their clothes or messy eating, even Chicago and she’s only two!
“Essentially she wants the kids to look perfect and picture ready every moment of the day – insists that it's good for the children to learn early.
“Also, the children are never allowed to interrupt mummy or daddy if they are talking, be that in real life or on the phone.
“Bad manners will not be tolerated by Kim and Kanye, especially in public. North and Saint are expected to eat as an adult at a restaurant. For them it's all about public image.”
‘Time out’ for tantrums
When it comes to discipling, Kanye believes in a ‘firm’ approach according to our insider so that dictates Kim's approach too.
While they don’t have a ‘naughty step’ like many UK households, the kids are handed back to nannies for a 'time out' if they act up or have a tantrum.
“Their favourite possessions are taken away and put under lock and key until they behave again,” our insider says.
“The two younger ones are different still but Kim and Kanye are obsessed with raising 'genius, perfect kids' who speak multiple languages, play multiple instruments, do all sorts of extra curricular.”
One thing that seems to have changed in the amount of screen time they’re allowed.
While our insider says they used to be very strict with TV time, that has become more of a family treat since dealing with lockdown.
Speaking about it Kim said, “We've watched every single movie you could possibly imagine [in lockdown].
"I've been showing the kids all these '80s movies like Harry And The Hendersons and stuff that they wouldn't have watched and it's so much fun!”
