Is Kim Kardashian trying to buy her children's love with material things? That possibility occured to some people recently after the reality star's Christmas present to her first daughter was revealed.

Giving North West her freedom

Kim Kardashian's kids are probably some of the luckiest in the world. Their mom isn't just rich, she's influential and famous too. So even as children, North, Chicago, Saint, and Psalm are already pretty famous too. But this may have people wondering if the children are being treated differently from the average kid.

While we don't know the answer to this for sure, we do know that Kim K allows her daughter, North, to be who she is even if that means choosing what she wears. The reality star once told Vancouver Sun that North is allowed to pick her outfits but only when she's home.

She can wear costumes, which she really loves. She wears wild pajamas. And then when we go out, she really just wears whatever I want. She makes it really easy. But we have that comprise.

Is this a little too much?

It's the Christmas season and kids all over the world are receiving presents from their family and North wasn't exempted. In a video posted online, Kim Kardashian revealed that she and Kanye West got their daughter North a jacket that used to belong to the late Michael Jackson.

In the video, Kim could be heard saying that they won the jacket at an auction so they could give it to the six-year-old for Christmas. She revealed a picture that showed the late pop star wearing the jacket while he was with Elizabeth Taylor.

While Kim didn't share the price of the jacket, CNN did report, in October, that a Michael Jackson's custom velvet jacket which he wore to Elizabeth Taylor's 65th birthday party was sold for $65,625. It was originally estimated to be sold for $10,000 and $20,000.

Kim Kardashian said that North was a really big fan of MJ and the little girl was very grateful for the present.

Spoiling the kid?

In reaction to this post, social media users expressed their views.

Many of them believed that Kim K was spoiling her child by buying her such an expensive gift.

Signs you might be spoiling your child

This whole saga did beg an important question: How do you know you're spoiling your kid? Here are four signs to watch out for, according to iMom.

  • You don't let them learn responsibility by making them pick up after themselves. You do everything for them even when they are capable of doing it themselves.
  • You do whatever they say and ignore it when they are disrespectful to you.
  • You give them everything they ask for even when they won't appreciate it or it will be bad for them.
  • You excuse and ignore rude behavior.

Raising a well-mannered, well-adjusted kid doesn't happen by magic. And when it comes to parenting, different people have different opinions, In the case of Kim and North, we can't say for sure if she's buying her daughter's love or is simply giving her something she desperately wants. Sure, the price tag is an issue. But if you could afford to give your child something they really, really want at least once in a year, wouldn't you?

It does seem unfair to judge Kim based on how much she spends considering her million-dollar net worth. But hey, what do we know? We do think it's a super cute jacket, though.
