The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Kourtney Kardashian recently took to her Instagram account and shared an important and meaningful message about how a mother should make their kids understand certain things. Kourt who is a mother to three - Mason, Penelope and Reign with her ex-partner Scott Disick, feels it is important to highlight white privilege to her kids and also discuss Black history. This post came amidst the current Black Lives Matter movement that sparked off after an African American George Floyd was murdered by police officers in the United States.
Sharing a lovely picture of her son Mason, she wrote in her post that she wants to teach her children about white privilege and racial inequality even if it feels uncomfortable, “As a mother, there is a natural instinct to protect my children from anything that might make them feel sad or unsafe. The pain and suffering inflicted by racism is not a thing of the past and I bare the responsibility to speak with my kids honestly and often about it, even when the truth is uncomfortable. I have to make sure they understand what it means to have white privilege and to take the time to learn and discuss Black History, beyond just one short month out of the year.”
She further mentioned how every mother should join her in helping your kids learn. “I encourage other mothers to join me in using this as a learning lesson for our children, to allow our children to feel comfortable enough to come to talk to us about anything. Allow conversation without judgement, and learn from our children too. We don’t know it all.”
Kourt also drew her own experience in the post which further read, “My children sometimes ask questions that I may not know the answers to, so we explore them together. I’ve felt like I’ve always been on the right side of this, but I have a lot to learn and want to educate myself even more, so that I can be a better mother, a better auntie to my nieces and nephews, a better friend, and a better person.
