Kourtney Kardashian on Talking Parenting with Kim: ‘She Will Give Little Digs As If My Way Is Wrong’

05/03/2016 at 03:30 PM ET

Kourtney Kardashian may be one fifth of the most famous quintet of sisters in entertainment, but it doesn’t mean they don’t have their fair share of disagreements, like every group of siblings.

And while Kourtney says she and her sister Khloé rarely bicker, when it comes to being a parent, Kourtney and Kim Kardashian West don’t always see eye to eye.

“It’s not even bickering; we just have different ways of doing things,” Kourtney says in an interview with The New Potato. “So even if it’s things with our kids, we’ll talk to each other about it. I’ll say, ‘I think I want to do this, this way,’ and then she wants to do something that way.”

But like any sisters who have strong personalities, sometimes it gets a little more heated than just a simple difference of opinion.

“She will give little digs as if my way is wrong or something. I used to love confrontation — and I don’t love confrontation anymore — but sometimes it will really get to me and I’ll just go off. And it feels so good. It’s more just a yelling, quick thing to let it be known that I’m always right,” Kourtney, 37, adds with a laugh.

But although they don’t always agree on everything, Kourtney’s sisters definitely add a ton of positive influence to her kids’ lives.

“They all bring different things into their lives with their different personalities. I feel like Khloe is definitely the fun, playful aunt, and Kylie has about a million pets, so they love to go play with her pets.”

Kourtney also has some advice for new moms — specifically, to try and keep cool and just trust your instincts.

“I remember when I was pregnant with Mason, my mom would always be like, ‘Why isn’t the room painted? Where is the crib? Where is this or that,’ ” Kourtney says. “And I was like, ‘People used to have babies in caves; it’s going to be okay.’ ”

Keeping calm makes sense as a big priority for Kourtney, since she’s mom to three young children: Mason Dash, 6, Penelope Scotland, 3½, and Reign Aston, 16 months, with ex Scott Disick, whom she has been separated from since July of last year.

Why Does Nikki Reed Think It’s Funny She’s Just Like Her Mother?

“Don’t worry if your diaper bag isn’t perfectly packed with all the things you need. As time went on, I started to just leave the house without it,” she adds. “I would bring the essentials or just throw a couple things in my purse instead of this huge thing, with blankets and extra sweaters. I was like, ‘Let’s just live life and not carry a million things around.’ I think it’s about staying calm and trusting your instincts.”

Kimbo is never with her kids. Ask the nannies.

Gina on

Well Courtney, you are at least a hands-on, great mother. Can’t say the same about Kim, the narcissist.

guest on

Guess what Kim???? The world doesn’t revolve around you. Your whole way of life is wrong.

Angel on

Kim’s always running off here & ther5leaving her kids with nannies but then again Kourtney is nice different. They’re both lousy parents!

Kourtney has done very well as a parent. Kim ….not so much.

joules on

Best quote from Kourtney about parenting was “If I’m not working, neither is the nanny.”

I think Kourtney is a very good mom. She is really centered on her kids, but also makes time for herself when she needs it. Nice to pictures of her and kids at the beach and she has no fake hair in. I hate those extensions. No one has all that great hair, unless you are a hair model.

Kourtney is kind good parent, not sure about Kim.

I wouldn’t trust either of them just to water my plants

Thanks People! Because the first thing people think of when they hear Kardashian is parenting. Another riveting story on this trash family.

I wouldn’t trust anyone in that family to water my plants

Yeah Kourtney, you just keep doing what you are doing. The last person I’d take advice from on parenting is Kim, with her 2 years of ‘experience’ in hiring nannies

They have nannies to help them, doesn’t matter if they’re good parents or not.

Hanna on

Kourtney has about as much personality as a “wet rag”. It’s scary to watch her speak and try and formulate sentences in that empty head of hers. Dumb twit.

LR on

Kourtney is starting to seem like the most normal sister. I’m kind of liking her more these days.

Audrea on

I think Kourtney is a better parent, Kim needs to learn from her.

UDontNoMe on

Kourt is a very attentive and truly loves her kids. Since Disick is gone, however, she seems less interested in being home with them, taking “vacations” every 3-5days. Kim? She’s more in love with herself than she’ll ever love her kids. Doubt she gives them a thought when she’s gone for weeks at a time, nor when she’s home.That’s what nannies are for.

Vanna on

Kourtney looks like more caring parent, Kim looks more into herself than her kids.
