Thank goodness Kim Kardashian’s children, North & Saint West, were not around when their mom was robbed at gunpoint in her room in Paris! But could they still be affected by such a terrifying ordeal? After all, kids are pretty intuitive! HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned what North & Saint should be told about the incident.
Kim Kardashian, 35, is reportedly “shaken” and feels “unsafe” since the horrifying robbery that occurred on Oct. 3 in her Paris room. And now that the reality star has been reunited with her and Kanye West‘s, 39, two children in NYC, North West, 3, and Saint, 9 months, it’s pretty safe to assume that the youngsters will pick up on some of their mom’s anxiety. So just what should Kim and Kanye tell their kids?
“Young children often know more than we believe that they do. However, since it does not seem that her children were involved in the incident, they do not need to know the details of what happened,” Psychologist & Family Therapist Dr. Jennifer Rhodes told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Simply saying that something ‘scary happened to mommy and mommy is okay now’ will suffice. “
And we totally get that. While you want to be honest with your children, you also don’t want to unnecessarily scare them. But if Kim’s recovery process becomes more complicated and emotional, then Kimye may actually have to reveal some more details about the event to North.
“If Kim has a complicated recovery, it would be natural for her children to worry,” Dr. Rhodes continued. “Fortunately, there are plenty of close friends and family to support Kim and the likelihood of this negatively affecting her children is minimized.” However, the doctor made sure to make clear that “even three-year-olds need to know that they are safe and both Kim and Kanye can sit with their daughter and reassure her that everything will be ok.”
As HollywoodLife.com previously told you, Kim was held at gunpoint, tied up, and locked in the bathroom of her private residence in Paris in the early morning hours of Oct. 3. A group of five men entered her home posing as police officers and stole an estimated $10 million worth of jewelry and two iPhones before escaping on bicycles. SO scary.
