The mother of four revealed that after growing up under constant coverage by the media, the kids are now getting vocal about not wanting to be photographed.
Kim Kardashian takes care to be in constant contact with her kids both on and off camera. The reality star recently discussed how she encourages open communication with the children North, 9, Saint, 7, Chicago, 5, and Psalm, 4, she has with her ex-Kanye West.
The 42-year-old influencer candidly shared that her kids are beginning to establish limits in the public eye as per E! News. Most notably, North made a statement in July when she told photographers to "stop" as she was at a Paris Fashion Week presentation, about which she tweeted later as well.
Kim clarified in a tweet that North wanted the media to "just focus on the show" rather than her. "I'll talk to my kids about anything they want to ask me about. I am so open and honest with my kids, I think that's the only way to be. It could be things they may not understand, and I'll wait to find the time to talk about it, but I think they grew up with the camera, and they grew up seeing that even as babies," Kim made this statement in a May 22 episode of the podcast On Purpose with Jay Shetty.
She also talked about her daughter being vocal about when not wanting something around. "I love when they use their little voices. They also have such a normal life and such a different life away from all that," the influencer told the host of the podcast.
"For anyone who knows North knows how funny she finds this video! North I guess had it with the people taking pictures of her so she wrote on her invite STOP and held it up and wanted them to just focus on the show…" Kardashian tweeted on July 8, 2022.

People were quick to respond to the tweet by the mother of four and reality star. User @emily_cheree writes, "I find it weird ppl can't comprehend that maybe she loves fashion and wants to be front row while simultaneously not wanting strangers to take her photo and I don't think it's a lot to ask people to leave kids alone so they can be comfortable in environments they enjoy."
While another user @EderBarraza shared a similar opinion as he tweeted, "don't you guys find it a little weird how this child is constantly openly expressing her discomfort with paparazzi and people filming/taking pictures of her but no one actually thinks of listening and respecting a child's boundaries. though they obviously find all this creepy/weird," he added in the thread.
Meanwhile in her candid interview with Shetty, the entrepreneur and beauty influencer stated that she is particularly appreciative of the age gap between her cousins and the kids of her sisters Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian. "That's why I love that my sisters and I had babies at the same time, so we could be with each other and have these experiences together," she said.
