Kim Kardashian’s Privacy Scare Has A Big Takeaway for Parents

After her daughter North got on Tik Tok without her permission, Kim faced a common parenting problem in the social media era.


One of the trickiest parts of parenting in the age of social media is knowing how much your kid should or should not be online. And after her 8-year-old daughter, North, went live on TikTok without her knowledge, Kim Kardashian did a nice job handling the situation and teaching her eight-year-old an important lesson about privacy and respect with some help from North’s cousin Mason.

Earlier this week, North went live on the video app and began giving a tour of the house, even going into Kim’s room. When Kim discovered what was happening, she quickly told her daughter that was not allowed and shut the whole thing down.

Kim then shared a text she received from her nephew Mason, as her sister Kourtney’s son shared his concern with his cousin going live on social media without a parent to monitor what she was saying or doing.

“Hi I don’t wanna disrespect north but I don’t think she should do the lives unless someone is with her because people are always screen recording and she might tell information that isn’t correct and stuff like that, that she will regret,” Mason texted.

Kim agreed with Mason, saying that the 12-year-old was “so mature” and that she appreciated his concern for his cousin. She revealed that she had spoken to North about what she did and that she “felt bad and I don’t think she will do it again but it could be good if you talk to her about it.”

Mason is speaking from his own experience, as he went live on Instagram last year and began oversharing about the family before his parents discovered what was happening. With the easy access to getting online, it can be difficult to fully monitor your kid’s behavior but fortunately, Kim seems to be keeping her daughter as safe as she can.
