North West may be the daughter of millionaire parents, but she may not always have an easy path in life. Mom Kim Kardashian said that, even though North is decked out in designer clothes now, it won’t always be that way.
“I was saying that earlier to my friends, ‘I wonder what [North’s] first job is gonna be,'” Kardashian told ES magazine. “And they were like, ‘What? She’s gonna have a job?’ and I was like, ‘Are you kidding me? Of course she is.’ She will have to work for what she wants.”
Kardashian even revealed her harrowing childhood of not being able to get everything she wanted without saving up for it.
“I saved up for this Dolce & Gabbana dress I really wanted, or like in high school these Prada shoes that my parents wouldn’t buy me,” she said, according to the Huffington Post. “And I remember they were $400, and I had to save for the entire year to get them. We didn’t get anything [from my parents], we had to get a job if we wanted it. So I was working in a clothing store and I would save and save.”
Although Kardashian may not have had a traditional job in years, she has learned how to make money. Her app has earned her tens of millions of dollars, plus she is raking in millions more in endorsement and fashion deals.
But Kardashian seems happy that her parents taught her how to work for what she wants and she has tried to incorporate that into her parenting style. She recently told the Daily Mail, “I am a strict mother. I’m really fun and playful, but I’m really strict on nap time, and sleeping in her own crib,” she said. Adding, “And maybe on weekends, [North will] come and sleep in the bed with us. But… I’m not crazy strict.”
