Kim Kardashian is one of the most famous women in the world, but she is also a mom to four young children. In a recent interview, Kardashian opened up about the challenges of parenting and how it can be emotionally draining.
The 41-year-old mom of four made the comments while recording an upcoming episode of the “On Purpose with Jay Shetty” podcast, per People.
“There are nights I cry myself to sleep,” Kardashian said. “It’s like full madness, it’s the best chaos though.”
Kim talked about particularly chaotic mornings: “It’s like, I always have to do one of my daughter’s hair — and it has to be perfect and it has to be a certain way — and then this one needs me to put his shoes on and they all need you… It’s like full crazy madness, cooking, running around. Like, it’s wild.”
Kardashian also focused on how the stress becomes overwhelming sometimes, saying, “Parenting is the thing that has taught me the most about myself.”
“It has been the most challenging thing,” she said. “There are nights I cry myself to sleep. Like, holy sh**, this f***ing tornado in my house. Like, what just happened?”
“You know, with all the moods and the personalities and sometimes they’re fighting, and you know, there’s no one there,” Kardashian said of being a single mom. “Like, it’s [just] me to play good police officer and bad cop.”
Kardashian shares her children, North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm, with her ex-husband, Kanye West. She said that one of the biggest challenges of parenting is trying to be a good role model for her kids.
“I want to be the best mom I can be, and sometimes that’s hard,” Kardashian said. “I want to teach them right from wrong, but I also want them to be happy and have fun.”
