I’ve always had a soft spot for Kardashian matriarch, Kris Jenner. Maybe it’s because she looks eerily similar to my mom, or because she toes the line between parent and friend.
At least, that’s what I used to think she did when it came to parenting her brood, until I heard Kim K’s interview with Oprah where she reveals that at just 14, she announced that she wanted to have her fist time at sex with her then-boyfriend, so her mom put her on birth control and–just like that–gave her the green light.
Some bloggers are applauding Kris’ forward-thinking ways and praising her for not flipping out and screaming at Kim, which would have just made her first time at sex even more stressful and scary. A good friend of mine agreed saying, “Kris didn’t let her–she just realized that if she couldn’t stop her, she could make sure she was responsible about it.”
Check the clip here:
But could she have changed her daughter’s mind? Kris had more options tham bugging out or giving the thumbs up to Kim’s super young first time at sex.
My mom would have sat me down and talked it out with me: Why did I want to have sex? What was I hoping would happen with my relationship after doing it? How would I feel if we broke up immediately after?
Chances are, Kim didn’t ask herself any of these questions—what super-in-love person does think logically?
Yeah, good for Kris for making sure Kim was safe health-wise, but I don’t think she was helping to protect her daughter mentally and emotionally. And IMO, a truly great parent looks out for all three.
And my mom would def point out that HELLO, 14-year-old sex is not good sex. Heck, I waited until I was in my 20s and it still wasn’t the best sex ever. I know lots of girls who had their first time at sex when they were under 15, and all of them regret it. Every single one.
You have your whole life to have sex—what’s another year or two? Learn the other stuff first! Trust me, you want to be good in bed, and if you just breeze right through Hooking Up 101 and go straight to AP Sexy Times, you could miss out on some serious bedroom tricks—and a lot of fun!
What do you think? Was Kris right to give KK the thumbs up her super young first time at sex? Do you think that no matter what her mom said, Kim would have done it anyway? How would you parents react if you were in Kim’s place? Tell me everything in the comments.
