Kris Jenner is by no means a typical mom, but that doesn't necessarily mean she's a bad parent. She's certainly generous, as evidenced by tonight's episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians.

Kris Jenner is constantly criticized by her children and by Keeping up with the Kardashians viewers, but is she as terrible a mom as the haters seem to think? Yes, she can be super controlling at times, but in her defense, her controlling behavior often comes from a place of love. Tonight, she once again showed her kids just how much she cares, although her actions did not receive as much appreciation as was warranted.

Kim Kardashian's takeover of her mom's house has been an ongoing theme on Keeping up with the Kardashians for over a year. Jenner has been kind enough to allow Kardashian and her family to crash, but unfortunately, Kardashian hasn't been a great house guest. Instead of showing her mom how grateful she is for all the support, Kardashian has taken over the entire house. What's more, she tends to be very rude when interacting with her mother. Instead of getting frustrated, Jenner has decided to take her doting a step further. During tonight's episode, she found a new place for herself and admitted that her plan was to allow Kardashian to have the house to herself.

It could be argued that Jenner made a bad decision, as she is essentially condoning her daughter's bad behavior — and sending the signal that it's okay for Kardashian to walk all over her mom in the future. What's more, Jenner's behavior could be interpreted as favoritism, since Kim is moving into the house and her siblings aren't. Either way, it's very obvious that Jenner loves her daughter and will do just about anything to make her happy. Although she has a special place in her heart for Kim, she would also be glad to make huge sacrifices for her other children.

Jenner has demonstrated extreme generosity on numerous occasions, but viewers were especially impressed by her conduct during tonight's episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians. Jenner could easily have complained about essentially being kicked out of her own house, but instead, she kept the focus on Kardashian. Viewers will not be quick to forget this, although a few will likely continue to criticize Jenner's parenting.
