I don’t follow Kylie Jenner on social media primarily because she’s 17, but I do follow my daughter on social media primarily because she’s 17. Earlier this year I started noticing a trend in my daughter’s snapchats of her being behind the wheel of a moving car. She even tried to play me when I confronted her saying, “But look, mom, I’m on the passenger side of the car.” No dice dear. Your mom’s a tech geek, the image is flipped, you’re driving and you’re grounded.
So…how do you ground your celebrity daughter who is a major influence on the youth of a society for doing the same thing? I don’t want to make assumptions about bad parenting when it comes to Chris Jenner because believe it or not, I admire the woman. She has one hell of a grind and whether or not you agree with it, she’s proven it to be a perfect formula for success. But what is she going to do with Kylie? If nothing else she needs a good sit down with her handlers and revamps her image. At the rate she’s going, she going to end up licking hammers and doughnuts in public at three A.M. shouting nonpatriotic statements.
Kids the same age as Kylie have taken to social media saying things like:
And of course, here’s the video that has everyone all abuzz:
Seventeen has more on the fan reactions and of course if you want to see all of the videos of Kylie driving you can check that here. But right now, I want to give a shout out to Chris Jenner. Girl, you need to put a stop to this with the quickness. It’s bad enough her father is still being looked at sideways for vehicular homicide. Is she trying to follow in his footsteps? I was looking through some photo’s of Kylie a few days ago and Chris you have a cash cow on your hands. But if you don’t get a handle on her soon, you’re going to end up with a bull in a china shop.
Parents, the dialogue has now changed. It’s no longer, “Don’t Text and Drive”, now it’s “Cell phones OFF in the car.”
Here’s a cautionary tale that will make you think twice
