Kris Jenner and her family are no strangers to criticism. Since their show Keeping Up with the Kardashians first aired in 2007, the matriarch and her children have dealt with their share of “haters.” And while the mom-of-six has managed to tune out the negativity, she recently revealed during the Hollywood Reporter's reality TV roundtable that she is concerned about her grandchildren — Mason, Penelope and Reign Disick, North and Saint West, and Dream Kardashian — involuntarily growing up in the spotlight.
“It’s my grandchildren who I worry about because I have six of them,” she admitted. “The oldest [Mason Disick] just turned seven, and my youngest [Dream Kardashian] is six-months-old, and they don't have a choice. And I worry, I do, because it is such a bullying environment.”
When bullying does present itself, Kris revealed that her brood turns to her daughter Kim Kardashian for advice. The reality star said, “[Kim’s] the queen of thick skin. She counsels everybody else. So if something happens in the family, she's the first one you call. "What should I do? How should I handle this?" Kris’ youngest children, Kylie and Kendall Jenner weren’t even teens when Keeping Up with the Kardashians began, though they made the decision to film their lives as a family. She said, “We decided as a family that if we're going to do this, we would just show everything.”

The 61-year-old, who serves as a producer of her hit E! series, admitted that “one of the best decisions” she made on the reality show was to say “We're not going to remove anything.” Kris explained, “With that philosophy, I told the kids, ‘Don't get on the internet.” She continued, “Ryan Seacrest, my producing partner, had told [my daughter] Kim about this little thing called Twitter, which she might be interested in. There wasn't Instagram or Snapchat or any of this other stuff then. Now, it's so heightened and, you know, haters are gonna hate. You expect it now.”
Kendall opened about how she deals with bullies last year telling Garage magazine, “Let’s face it – everyone is going to have an opinion. Best advice I have is to realize just that, everyone’s always going to be saying something and if you concern yourself with that, you’re in for a giant headache.” The model added, “What matters is how you feel.”
