'Put life jackets on those babies': Kim Kardashian SLAMMED for careless parenting of daughter and nieces
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Socialite and reality TV star Kim Kardashian's 'careless parenting' of children under her care has drawn harsh criticism from her followers. Kim's nieces, Dream, 6, and True, 4, and her daughter Chicago, who is also 4, are shown gazing across the lake while they lean on the deck rail of a boat in the latest Instagram image uploaded by Kim on Friday, August 5.
The children all seem to have a similar taste in clothing and are spotted in matching tie-dyed pink and purple swimming costumes. In the caption of the picture, Kim wrote, "BFFAE best friends forever and ever."
Rob Kardashian, Kim's brother, commented with a love and a hug emoticon, while Khloe, her sister, replied with six white hearts. While admirers felt the Kardashian family's future generations were charming, many began to worry about their safety and wellbeing. Several of Kim Kardashian's followers expressed their worries on Instagram, criticizing Kim for not providing the kids with life vests.
One person said, "I may be in the minority here, but I wish the parents would practice safety measures. These children are on a boat with no life jackets. Even when they're in a car, sometimes they are not correctly secured. It doesn't take but a few extra minutes to do so." Another comment read, "Put a life jacket on those babies please!!! I'm sorry, but as a kid who grew up on boats-you would never have little kids like this on deck without flotation. Doesn't matter if it's the calm Caribbean."
However, some felt that wearing life jackets in such a situation was a bit of an overkill. "Oh I grew up on boats too but I never wore a life jacket. To be fair though we were in Australia (not sure what the requirements were) and not on a giant yacht. But now I put a life jacket on my dog when we go on a boat, and would prob put one on a kid if I had one," said one commentator on boat safety protocols.
Yet another Instagram user claimed that this is not the first incident that revealed Kim's carelessness towards the kids. "Like that one episode where Khloe is driving in the snow & the car spins out with Kim & North in the backseat. Kim kept saying she wasn’t wearing a seatbelt. First, why???? Second, I would’ve quickly buckled my seatbelt! Edit: I know you meant the kids are not properly secured but even the adults!!!" said the user.
Followers have criticized the Kardashians family's 'risky' childcare methods on a number of occasions. From Kourtney not buckling her children up on a road trip to Kim utilizing crib cushions with Psalm and thus putting her baby boy at risk from Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), the stars are not known for their child-caring skills.
Kylie recently faced criticism for a manicure that she and Stormi had together. The 24-year-old entrepreneur and reality TV star uploaded a clip of herself and daughter Stormi on TikTok having their nails done. Stormi chose orange nail polish that had little diamonds adhered to the tips. Stormi's nails drew criticism from those who thought the diamond embellishments may have been dangerous for the baby. A sarcastic Reddit comment said, "Lemme just glue some choking hazards on my toddler's hands." Others criticized Kylie's long fingernails as unsanitary, saying they might make it more challenging for her to care for her six-month-old child.
Kim Kardashian has been facing the heat online quite often these days. Before this, netizens blasted her for promoting unhealthy weight loss goals after Kim drastically reduced her size. Many fans were also worried about her physical wellbeing. During the latest picture session advertising the new Yeezy/Gap sunglasses on Instagram, Kim and Chicago posed in black bodysuits. The creator of SKIMS was shown holding her little daughter in her arms and cuddling with her as she donned matching shiny glasses. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star appeared to be so thin that the young child appeared to be able to totally encircle her. A comment said, "I love the queen but you're so thin!!"
Kim's family is worried that the television celebrity is shedding too much weight and is hardly ever resting, according to The Sun in May. According to a source close to Kim, her hectic schedule with the production of the family's television show, her legal studies, caring for her four kids alone, and her bicoastal relationship with former Saturday Night Live actor Pete Davidson has begun to take a toll on her. "Now she's constantly jetlagged, and she’s finding it hard to fit workouts in. I think Kim’s really struggling but won't admit it, "alleged the source.
