For instance, Kim will have to learn how to protect her child not only from photographers, but also from all the gossip surrounding her and her famous family. She’ll learn the fine art of steering a young pair of eyes away from newsstand magazines and blocking access to certain news and entertainment sites.
But that will be easy in comparison to the other big task in front of her: raising a biracial child.
She recently told BET, “I have a lot of friends that are all different nationalities and their children are biracial, so they have kind of talked to me a little bit about it and what to expect and what not to expect.
“But I think that the most important thing is how I would want to raise my children is to just not see color.”
Kim adds that her family will “travel the world and experience different races and different cultures everywhere, so I think that would be something that is important to me to give as much information as I could.”
(A slightly convoluted answer, but she gets the point across.)
But though she plans to teach tolerance to her child, Kim will have to be prepared for the fact that others may not be so tolerant of her offspring. And there’s a fine distinction to be made between teaching a child colorblindness and raising him to acknowledge and be proud of every part of his heritage.
What advice would you give Kim? How do you teach a child to appreciate diversity and treat everyone equally?
