    When it comes to parenting, Khloe Kardashian knows exactly what to discuss with her daughter even at an early age.

    The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star recently appeared on Role Model podcast by Leomie Anderson where she shared the importance of talking about race with children. She reflected on being a white mom to Black daughter, True, whom she shares with Tristan Thompson. She said, “I will be always learning and trying to do the best I can do as being her mom but I’m obviously not a woman of color.”

    The reality star shared, “I do want her to be exposed to as much inclusion, but variety as possible. I don’t want her living in a bubble thinking, you know— because we do have this very privileged life and I want her to know all types of life and all types of living and be very aware of that.” 

    The Good American co-founder said that it’s a must to talk about race with her daughter. She explained, “I know some people get uncomfortable with talking to their kids about race or they think, ‘Oh we live in a bubble. We never have to address that my child is Black.’ I mean, of course you do! You’re only setting them up I think for failure if you don’t talk about race and probably the things that they’re going to endure once they’re in, quote, the ‘real world.'”

    She added, “The beauty of having some of my sisters in the same situation is we get to have those conversations probably together.”

    She noted, “I have to educate her as best as I can while still educating myself at the same time. Of course we don’t want to overexpose our children or tell them things too young and I don’t know when that time is, but I think I’ll learn it when I’m in it.”

    Khloe also said that not exposing children to the realities of race would be a form of disservice. According to her, “Even if you do live in a bubble, whoever you are, I think that can be really jarring then when your kids are set free, then they’re going to be so either devastated, hurt, traumatized, confused, overwhelmed. I think it’s our duty as parents to really expose them while they have the safety and security of their parents to, I think, communicate that with them and still guide them and help them instead of just like letting them out into the free world and now they’re like, Wait, this isn’t what—I didn’t hear about this, I had no idea this was what real life was.”

    Meanwhile, she also anticipates another parenting challenge saying, “Something that I already know I’m going to have trouble with is letting her make her own mistakes. That’s how we all learn in life.”

    She added, “I know it’s a never-ending journey being a mother. It’s not just when they’re 18 and you just forget about them…You’re always their mom.”
