Kourtney Kardashian: “I Think it’s Important to Let Your Kids be Who They Are”

Kourtney Kardashian has opened up on parenting her daughter Penelope, explaining that she lets her make choices for herself.

K ourtney Kardashian has three kids but has spoken specifically on raising her daughter Penelope. Speaking on styling her, Kourtney says that she does often choose certain types of clothing when putting together her wardrobe but she likes to allow Penelope to have some freedom and choice too:

“I lean towards certain clothes in general when picking things out for her. And I try to steer her in a good direction, but I try to let Penelope have as much freedom as possible when picking her clothes. I mean, if the shoes are totally wrong for the rest of the outfit, I’ll tell her, “That doesn’t match; what if we pick a different pair?” But I think picking out her clothes makes her feel more independent, and for me, fashion was always a way to express myself, even when I was very small. I think it’s important to let your kids be who they are, and that includes clothes. I like to give her choices as much as possible.”

Kourtney adds that Penelope regularly watches her working which includes having her hair and makeup done. She doesn’t believe it has any negative impact on her daughter and she loves letting her play dress-up, she doesn’t see it as something serious:

“Well, Penelope sees me getting makeup and hair done all the time. She plays in my closet all the time, and tries on my clothes. But I don’t think that counteracts being smart, or a great leader, or anything like that. My sisters and I watched our mom get dressed all the time. We always played with her makeup. We always tried on her clothes and shoes. And so Penelope does too, because it’s part of how kids play.”

She tries to teach her that she doesn’t need to load up her skin with makeup but also doesn’t want to stop Penelope from exploring the world around her by holding her back. She says her parenting approach is balanced:

“I try to tell her, “That’s not good for your skin. Your skin is so beautiful anyway! You don’t need that. Let’s wipe it off together so everyone can see you.” But I don’t want to offend her, and I don’t want her to feel like she’s done anything wrong by exploring, you know? So I’m trying to teach her the balance, like, “Makeup is a part of fashion. It’s a part of expressing yourself.” But it’s such a fine line, because getting the right message across, about being beautiful inside and being a caring person, that is so important. But I don’t think that means you can’t experience fashion and beauty. And I hope I can show her that balance.”
