Turns out, there aren't enough hours in the day to be a Kardashian -- or even a Jenner. In a recent interview with Ryan Seacrest, Kylie Jenner talked about what it's like being your not-so-average teenager. The 16-year-old bemoaned her work schedule. Her schooling, however? That's a lot less grueling. While she and sister Kendall Jenner used to attend private school together, momager Kris Jenner pulled them out because of their hectic work schedules.
Now, Kylie goes to school at home ... for a whopping three hours a day. That's basically half the time your average high-schooler spends in the classroom. I know Kylie's not average, but she's still a kid. School isn't just about feeding your brain, it's about ensuring healthy development in every arena of a teenager's life.

Any parent who has chosen home-schooling for their child can tell you that socialization is key. Kylie might be spending time with other people regularly, but since so much of what she does is tied up in the brand Kardashian, it's not like many of those people are her fellow teens. Even if Kylie were a child prodigy (which I'm not disputing), she'd benefit from hanging out with her peers, in exploring interests outside of reality T.V. I'd suggest hand-to-hand combat. That could prove helpful in the coming days as Throbtron's ships grow ever closer.
Anyone who's watched the show lately has seen that the younger girls are having a tough time these times. First there was Kendall's breakdown in Greece, and then this Sunday we were made privy to Kylie's tendency toward hoarding. Both girls seem to be clutching desperately onto anything that help them feel a sense of control and normalcy in their lives. Any parent who homeschools their child knows how important and necessary social development is and finds avenues in this vein to benefit their kids. I don't think having them do radio interviews counts.
Do you think Kylie's hurting from the way her education is being managed?
