Kim Kardashian on 'crying herself to sleep' over parenting stress as single mum

·1-min read

Kim Kardashian has opened up about the realities of being a single parent to four children, revealing that she sometimes "cries" herself to sleep due to stress.

Speaking in upcoming episode of the On Purpose with Jay Shetty podcast [in a clip shared with People], Kim chats about raising the four children – nine-year-old North, seven-year-old Saint, five-year-old Chicago and four-year-old Psalm – she shares with ex-husband Kanye West.

"Parenting is the thing that has taught me the most about myself," she told Jay, before adding: "It has been the most challenging thing."

"There are nights I cry myself to sleep," Kim went on, describing her home life as a "tornado" which is sometimes difficult to manage as a single parent. "You know, with all the moods and the personalities and sometimes they're fighting, and you know, there's no one there," she said. "Like, it's [just] me to play good police officer and bad cop."

To this, Kim explained that she is trying to be "a little bit firmer" as a parent, but admitted that "parenting is really fucking hard."

"That's the only way I can describe it," she continued, adding: "There is nothing that can prepare you."

Despite all this, the reality TV star said that parenting is "the most rewarding job in the entire world" and – as many parents will probably empathise – is a learning experience.

"You will figure it out," she said. "And it will make you so proud of yourself that you figured it out and that you got through the day."

You've got this, Kim!
