Throughout her time in the spotlight, Khloe Kardashian has been vocal about his issues with body image. Now she’s opened up about how she’s planning on educating her daughter.
Khloe Kardashian has always been open about how fame and comparison to her sisters has effected her self-perception.
Remember when an unedited photograph of her body made it onto Instagram and her PR team went wild trying to get it taken down?
And it seems as though she’s fully conscious of trying to help her daughter, True, not face the same circumstances.
This week she told Health about the main method she employs to ensure True does not grow up with a complex about her body.
“When it comes to food — I had so many issues,” Kardashian began. “It wasn’t from one person, I guess just from society or how people critiqued my body.”
“I don’t play when it comes to True,” she explained.
“She’s very tall. People will always say, ‘She’s so big.’ And I’ll say, ‘Oh, she’s so tall.’ I try to make them be more descriptive,” she continued.
“I know what an adult means when they say that, but I don’t want her to misinterpret that.”
However, not everyone agrees with her stance.
“She’s actually creating the body image issues in her daughter! This is a classic example of someone trying to right the wrongs of their own childhood through their children,” wrote one Facebook commenter.
“So she is being taught “body positivity” by avoiding being called “big” because that could, horrifically (it seems), be misinterpreted as big = fat? But if she was being taught body positivity why would she correlate big as being negative versus simply another body positive state of existence. Self Love is about acceptance not avoidance,” another agreed.
However, Khloe fans also came out in full force, too.
“I agree with her! Children very often misinterpret what an adult means when they say things like that. She’s a great mom!” one added.
