Cupid's Pulse Article: Celebrity News: Kourtney Kardashian Says She Has ‘Responsibility’ to Teach Kids About White PrivilegeCupid's Pulse Article: Celebrity News: Kourtney Kardashian Says She Has ‘Responsibility’ to Teach Kids About White Privilege

By Diana Iscenko

In the latest celebrity baby news, Kourtney Kardashian shares that she’s committed to teaching her children about white privilege. In a recent Instagram post, Kardashian shares the importance of allowing “conversation without judgement” with your kids. In the wake of George Floyd’s death and Black Lives Matter protests, it’s easy to turn away from these conversations because they’re uncomfortable. “As a mother, there is a natural instinct to protect my children from anything that might make them feel sad or unsafe,” said Kardashian. However, that’s not stopping the reality TV star: “I bare the responsibility to speak with my kids honestly and often about it, even when the truth is uncomfortable.” Kardashian set an example for her children by donating to the NAACP and the Bail Project through her lifestyle and wellness brand Poosh.

In celebrity news, Kourtney Kardashian is speaking out about teaching her kids about racism and white privilege. What are ways to come to terms with your partner on which values to instill in your children?

Cupid’s Advice:

As much as we love our partners, we won’t always see eye to eye. This becomes especially challenging when it comes to raising your children. If you need help deciding what values to teach your kids, Cupid has some advice for you:

1. Decide what’s important: Have a conversation with your partner. Decide what values are non-negotiable and what’s most important to actively teach your kids. Remember that your kids will model their behavior after your own, so not every lesson will be verbal!

2. Delegate “teachable moments”: While you should both be teaching your children values, one of you might have a stronger connection to a particular issue. If your partner has a personal experience that makes them passionate about a subject, you might want to take the backseat for those conversations.

3. Adapt your views: As your child (and you and your partner!) ages, what’s most important to teach them will change. Outside forces, like experiences at school and current events, might require you and your partner to have discussions you hadn’t planned on before. Flexibility is important to best teach your child in a changing world.
