Kim Kardashian's Stance on Spanking Isn't What We Expected

Kim KardashianDespite the fact that Kim Kardashian has had her mothering skills criticized since the birth of North, especially since she travels so much and often without her daughter, you just know that Kim is an indulgent mother. Can you imagine her saying no to Nori about anything? Or Kanye for that matter? So you know they're not going to spank her -- just, no way.

A source told RadarOnline:

Kim and Kanye decided before North was born there would be no spanking, ever. It’s not how they want to raise their daughter. As North gets older, and when she acts up, there will be time outs, taking away a favorite toy, but absolutely no physical discipline.

I don't believe in physical discipine, so I agree with this, however it IS easy to promise when Nori is still so young. What about when she's a toddler and screaming, yelling, throwing tantrums? Oh wait, then Daddy will join her! Haha.

I hope that Kim and Kanye at least do discipline her, and she doesn't grow up to be a total spoiled brat -- but there's a decent chance she will. The source continued:

North will be given clear boundaries that a child needs, and there will be consequences that won’t involve any hitting or spanking. It’s all about rewarding the positive behavior, and dealing with the naughty tantrums with patience and love.

Hmm. Sounds too good to be true, but let's hope so.

Meanwhile, it's a good thing Kim never settled down with Reggie Bush, because he recently admitted that he "harshly" disciplines his one-year-old daughter -- though he tries not to leave bruises on her. Gee, thanks, Dad.

I definitely prefer Kim and Kanye's version of parenting. Pro-spankers be damned.

Do you think they should spank North?
