Tribute to Mothers: Kris Jenner


Kris Jenner is a businesswoman and a momager, but most importantly she is a mother to six successful children, and many, many, grandchildren. Of all the roles and titles that Jenner has in her life, it seems those involving her children and grandbabies are the ones she cherishes the most. And often, what she has to say about her loved ones is worth hearing.

Jenner taught her family to be tolerant and accepting of others. She understands the importance of tough skin and ignoring the criticism that her family often receives, and she is continually learning about patience, selflessness, and unconditional love from her famous offspring. She’s raised children who may bicker and fight (this can be seen on their reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians) but they are loyal to each other and would never dare break their family pact and expose secrets that they want to be kept from the public eye.

And while it was a tough task raising six children, Jenner really enjoys being a grandmother (although she doesn’t like being called that), and this is something that fills her heart with love and happiness. Below are some things Jenner has said about being a mother and a grandmother; they are funny, interesting and most importantly, relatable.

It’s not her business accomplishments she’s proud of, but the fact that her children are all taken care of. She says, “I never thought I would be in this place where all your kids are taken care of and settled down and have a home, and that’s such a joy for a mom.”

For Jenner, being a mom is the best thing she’s ever done. She shared this on an Instagram post, writing, “Being a mother is by far the greatest blessing. My children are my most precious gifts and I am so beyond proud of each and every one of them.”

Not all celebrities like the title of grandma, or a variation of the word. And if we’ve learned anything from Jenner it’s that there’s no shame in admitting you would rather be called something else. Jenner prefers her grandbabies call her Lovey. “My mom had a friend called Lovey and I thought that was the cutest name,” says Jenner.

Having chosen to live their lives in the public eye and share so much of themselves, Jenner understands the implications for their children, and it’s something she worries about. She’s spoken about her fears of bullying, saying, “It’s my grandchildren who I worry about they don’t have a choice… And I worry, I do, because it is such a bullying environment.”

There are many adjectives to describe the Kardashian family, but two that Jenner would appreciate you using would be: accepting and tolerant. For Jenner, it’s incredibly important to raise people who have these qualities, and she cannot understand how people can say unnecessarily mean remarks about others. “I raised my kids kind of old-fashioned—if you don’t have something nice to say, then don’t say it at all,” she says. “I teach love, acceptance and tolerance.”
