Kourtney Kardashian says she won’t leave kids alone at her mom, Kris Jenner’s house when her boyfriend, Corey Gamble, is present. On last week's episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kourtney revealed that her daughter had scratched her nanny, causing the nanny to quit, which led to Gamble giving his two-cents about disciplining. The discussion quickly turned into a heated argument.
Last week brought a lot of issues to light regarding the treatment of the nannies in the Kardashian family. On the episode, Kourtney explains that she no longer has a nanny, after her 7-year-old daughter Penelope "P" Disick, whom she shares with ex-boyfriend Scott Disick, had an incident where she physically attacked the nanny. She claimed that when the nanny was putting Penelope in the car, the 7-year-old scratched her in the face. She acknowledged that her daughter has a tendency of being "out of control," but said she wished the nanny would have said something in the moment, rather than have her discipline her later. Kim Kardashian then suggested she call the nanny and apologize like she had when he 6-year-old daughter North had threatened to bite her nanny after she tried to fire her. Kris said that Kourtney needs to take this situation more seriously, but Kourtney chalked it up as normal, as she revealed she used to slap her nannies in the face when she was a kid. Kris' boyfriend chimed in and said that Kourtney and Scott need to physically discipline Penelope if taking possessions away from her doesn't work. He said, "If P scratch me, I'm whipping her a**." Penelope's father, Scott, got on the defensive, which led to the two men screaming and cursing each other out.
Kris tried to ease the tension by reassuring Kourtney that her boyfriend's comments weren't meant to be taken literally as he never intends to actually hurt Penelope. Kourtney responded by saying, "Because he will never be with my kids alone and if he does that in front of any of us there will be a f**king issue!" Later in the episode, it seems that Kourtney and Gamble tried to talk things out, although it seemed to not change anything. Kourtney told him, "We are never going to agree" when it comes to punishing children or parenting. She then revealed that due to the argument with Gamble, she now is wary bringing over her three children over to their Grandmother Kris' house, "because I feel uncomfortable" with her boyfriend, Gamble, being around. Gamble tried to reassure her that he had no intention "to discipline her kids" in any way. Kourtney went to Twitter to defend her parenting and show her views against physically punishing children. See the Tweet below:
Kourtney went to Twitter to defend her parenting after the episode sparked a huge debate about if Kourtney or if Gamble was correct in their beliefs. One fan wrote that she should "get her kids in check" before it gets out of hand. In which Kourtney replied, "And in my opinion beating children is not the way to 'get your kids in check'." One fan Tweeted, "But they can hit other people when they are angry and frustrated? What kind of sense." In which Kourtney replied, "They’re children and she was clearly hurting inside so hurting her physically is not going to make anything better. How do we not know better by now?!"
It seems that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians fanbase is divided on the subject of disciplining when a child lashes out physically on their nanny. It seems like fans are upset with Kourtney for not handling the situation more seriously, as Kris had expressed in the episode, however, there are plenty of fans who are on her side about corporal punishment for kids isn't healthy. It seems that for now, the kids will not be visiting Grandma Kris' house while Gamble is present. Who knows if the family will ever be able to forgive him for voicing his opinion.
