Kim Kardashian Criticized For Parenting Skills (Or Lack Thereof)

Recently Kim Kardashian defended herself on Twitter against allegations that she and her child's father, Kanye West, were bad parents because they posted pictures and updates of themselves on social media without their 5 month old baby. I am not a fan of Kim's and have no real idea of her parenting skills; however, she is being unfairly criticized. She noted that she only posts what she wants others to see, and the reality is not what people believe it is.  And neither is reality tv.....

Realistically, we do not have to spend 24-7 with our children for them to grow up happy and healthy. Too many parents feel guilt over not attending every event, trip, game, luncheon, exhibition or recital. If you work full-time, this would be difficult or impossible. Even if you don't work full time, or are a stay at home parent, no one expects you to entirely give up your life. You had a life before you had children, and you should continue to have one.  It's an improved life - call it "my life 2.0."  My family is my number one priority and always has been, but I love my career and continue to exercise regularly. There are get-togethers with friends. Reading, dancing and movies are so important to my mental health.

Social media is a great thing. Caveat: it is not real life. Caveat to the caveat: You can be sure your child's other parent will seize upon whatever you post (or don't post) as ammunition for a custody battle. Anything you say (or post) can and will be used against you, and often in color.  Remember: Facebook is like a billboard on I-95. It's out there for everyone to see. Please post wisely.
