Kim Kardashian West Believes Her Son Psalm Is Her Late Father Reincarnated After Meeting With a Medium in Bali

Reality star, beauty guru, and SKIMS creator Kim Kardashian West believes her youngest son, 8-month-old Psalm West is her late father, Robert Kardashian Sr., reincarnated.

In a new interview with E! News, the mom of four called Psalm “probably the happiest baby alive. He’s always smiling, always happy.” She also reflected back to a moment in her life when she interacted with a blind medium from Bali.

Kim Kardashian West Thinks Her Son Is Her Late Father Reincarnated

As Kardashian West explained in her interview, the medium told her that she “was gonna have another son and that it was gonna be my father reincarnated.” At the time she met with the medium, nobody, not even the crew, knew “I had a surrogate that was pregnant with a boy.”

And while she didn’t believe in reincarnation at first, Kardashian West admitted that enough has happened since Psalm’s birth that she’s starting to think maybe the medium was right. She recalled one specific story while talking with E! News:

So Thankful for my babies

“My baby nurse, I had to go out of town and I really needed her to come in,” she shared. “But she had a baby shower that she had to go to. And I said, ‘It’s okay, you can bring my son to the baby shower, if that’s okay with you.’ I really needed the help. She brings him to a baby shower, and a woman comes up to her and said, ‘Is this your son?’ And she said, ‘No, no, no, I’m just watching him.’ And she said, ‘Well, I just have to tell you, please tell their mom this is a family member of hers reincarnated.'”

Kardashian West continued, “Multiple people that had no idea that was my nanny or anything have come up to my baby to say that he’s a family member reincarnated. So my whole family, all the time, thinks it’s my dad and is just so emotional and close to him.”

Psalm is even left-handed like his late grandfather, she said, adding, that when he completed their family in May, his presence also brought peace between his two oldest siblings, North and Saint. “So, all these things happen. I don’t even know if I believe in reincarnation, but I do now. But I want to believe it!”

‘The Best Gift I’ve Ever Gotten’: Late Father Surprises Teen Son With a Puppy for His Birthday Five Days After He Passed Away

Thirteen-year-old Logan Kavaluskis recently lost his father after a nearly decade-long battle with cancer. After an unimaginable loss, Logan received the belated birthday present his dad had planned for him before he passed away.

Logan’s dad, Joe Kavaluskis, was diagnosed with multiple myeloma (blood cancer) more than ten years ago, Fox 17 reports. Towards the end of his battle, Joe knew exactly what he wanted to do for son after he was gone.

Dad Surprises Son on His 13th Birthday With a New Puppy After Passing Away

In a video shared online, Logan is seen going into a pet shop to pick out a puppy for his cousin, or at least that’s what he was led to believe. In truth, though, Logan’s dad had picked out a Boston Terrier to give to his son for Logan’s 13th birthday.

Fox 17

Logan’s dad was allergic to animals, which meant the family couldn’t have one in the house while he was alive. So the father had arranged for his son to get the new pet after he passed.

Logan named the puppy Indie. “I think it’s probably the best gift, I’ve ever gotten, from my dad,” Logan told Fox 17. And Logan’s mom, Melani Kavaluksia, said the puppy has become a welcome distraction.

“So much love, and comfort, and distraction, because we can’t sit still,” Logan’s mom Melanie Kavaluksia told the news station. On the family’s GoFundMe page, they shared that Joe had been through multiple rounds of chemotherapy over the years.

At one point, Joe’s cancer was being well managed, though unfortunately, this particular type of cancer doesn’t go into remission. He passed away just five days before Logan’s birthday at the age of 47.

Logan’s mom told Fox17 that it was important to her and her family to focus on the positive as much as possible. And Joe knew that Indie would be just what his family needed to turn something so heartbreaking into something more positive.

Lady Gaga’s Mom Opens Up About Her Superstar Daughter’s Mental Health Struggles, And What They Are Doing Now to Help Others

Superstar Lady Gaga hasn’t always felt comfortable in her own skin. The singer’s mom, Cynthia Germanotta, recently opened up about her daughter’s battle with depression which began when her daughter was in middle school.

Germanotta was interviewed as part of Today’s digital series “Through Mom’s Eyes.” During her interview, the mom got candid about her daughter’s struggles with mental health issues, in part because of “severe bullying.”

Germanotta explained that as a child, Gaga—born Stefani Germanotta—was different than her peers. “In middle school, because she was unique, she started experiencing a lot of struggles,” her mom told co-host Shenielle Jones. “You know, feeling isolated from events. Humiliated. Taunted.”

Lady Gaga’s Mom Opens up About How She Dealt With Daughter’s Mental Health When She Was a Teen

Germanotta said that the constant ridicule caused the now popstar to “question herself and become doubtful of her own abilities.” It was then that “she developed depression. We tried our best as parents to help her, but didn’t know anything.”

Germanotta admitted that at the time she was at a loss on how to address her daughter’s depression. “I felt where I made mistakes was, I didn’t really know the warning signs to look for,” she said.

As People reports, Gaga has also been open about her mental health struggles, including her battle with PTSD. The singer hopes that by speaking about her past she can help fans dealing with similar challenges. The 33-year-old also opened up about being sexually assaulted at age 19.

She said in an interview with Vogue, “For me, with my mental health issues, half of the battle in the beginning was, I felt like I was lying to the world because I was feeling so much pain but nobody knew. So that’s why I came out and said that I have PTSD because I don’t want to hide – any more than I already have to.”

To help support more young people who are dealing with their own mental health issues, the mother and daughter duo created a non-profit organization called, Born This Way Foundation, in 2012. Germanotta said of the charity:

“It’s something that’s very, very personal to us and it goes back to the struggles Stefani had growing up. She envisioned a world where young people were better equipped to deal with struggles than she was.”

During an award show speech, Gaga said that she wished there was a place she should turn when she was dealing with bullying and depression as a teen. “I wish there had been a system in place to protect and guide me. A system in place to empower me to say no to things I felt I had to do. A system in place to empower me to say no to things I felt I had to do.”

Gaga continued, “A system in place to empower me to stay away from toxic working environments or working with people that were of seriously questionable character. There were days I struggled or couldn’t make it to work, and I don’t want that for other artists, or for anyone.”

At What Age Should You Let Your Children Bathe Alone?

A Community Member writes in asking for advice on when it is safe to let your children bathe alone, without any assistance from a parent.

A mother asks:

“How old should kids be to bathe alone? How old were your kids when you let them bathe by themselves, no adult in the room? I have an 8 yr old son who can pretty much bathe by himself but I still sit in there with him to make sure he does it right.”

Community Advice on What Age You Should Allow Your Child To Bathe Alone

Advice Summary

The community advice seemed to be pretty consistent across the board. Allow them to bathe alone not based on their age, but on whether they were capable of doing so. There were a variety of ages that parents allowed their children to bathe alone, ranging from ages 4 to 8 years old. What age did you let your children bathe alone?”

I wash my 6-year-olds hair and she washes the rest of her body. I leave her alone to play afterward.

My girls are 7 and 8 and I started teaching them to bathe themselves around the time the youngest was 5. They bathe themselves clean now. No issues.

I sit in the room or in the hallway right outside the door with the door open with my almost 4-year-old. If I walk away he has to sing his ABCs until mommy returns. Its normally just to get his 10-month-old brother out of his crib.

Our daughter started showering herself at 8. She could bathe herself for years but the hair we always have to do or at least supervise for her until recently. She’s 9 now and can do it all herself just fine. I remember doing it completely myself at like 6 though so every kid is different.

Mine is 9. He has been showering by himself for at least a year. He STILL doesn’t always do it right but I just send him back in to do it again or rinse the shampoo he missed out in the sink. I’m pretty much under the impression my boy isn’t going to shower properly the first time until he gets old enough to start wanting to impress a girl because he really could care less if he’s clean at this point. I do all the caring about that for him. He just handles the eye-rolling on the way back to the shower.

Final Thoughts

No Kids Mic GIF - Find & Share on GIPHY

The most important factor in answering this question is safety. The Parents.com team makes a very good point worth sharing, “Bathing alone can be risky because of drowning dangers, and it can take just a few seconds for even older kids to slip and drown in only a few inches of water. Because of this, many experts suggest waiting until your child is at least 8 before allowing him to dunk in the tub alone.”

Every child reaches milestones at their own pace. As a mother or a father, we have to decide when they have reached that milestone of showering/bathing themselves. I have four children and they all began bathing themselves at different ages, but by 8-years-old they were all bathing themselves with very little help from me.

My Grandma-in-Law Made an Offensive Comment to My Six-Year-Old Daughter, and I Don’t Know What to Do

A Mamas Uncut community member needs advice about how to handle a tricky situation involving her grandmother-in-law making an offensive remark towards a six-year-old girl.

Over on the Mamas Uncut Facebook page, our robust community of moms is always having a conversation about topics that matter. We like to highlight those conversations from time to time. Important questions. Thoughtful answers. This is our Community Questions feature!

A member of our community asks:

So, tonight we brought dinner to my husband’s grandmother’s house for Easter. She has a mirrored wall next to her table. While we were eating, my 6-year-old daughter was staring at the mirror and making silly faces. My husband’s grandma asked my 6-year-old why she was staring into the mirror. My daughter answered, “because I’m beautiful!” My husband’s grandmother’s said, “You’re lying. I’m looking at you and you’re not.”

I was honestly so shocked, and my poor little girl just got quiet and looked at her plate. I looked at my husband and let him know he needed to handle it, because I knew I would be mean if I had to address her since I had already had to tell her earlier in the day to stop harassing my daughter about not eating enough. He wouldn’t say anything (not surprising), so I told him to pack up our things because we were leaving.

We packed up and headed to the car. I got my daughter and myself in while he said goodbye and hugged her behind the car. Am I wrong for being mad? I just feel like a comment like that about a 6-year-old is just unnecessary and mean. I also feel like I lost a ton of respect for my husband for not standing up for our daughter. How would you handle this situation? She did say it like she was joking, but a 6-year-old can’t tell the difference, and I know my daughter’s feelings were hurt.

– Mamas Uncut Community Member

The Mamas Uncut Facebook community rushed in with a ton of good advice. We’ve highlighted several answers below.

It Would Have Been OK to Say Something

“Family or not, if it involves my child I’m saying something. You are their advocate, and, obviously, you could tell it hurt her feelings. So why not stand up for her? I’m just saying I wouldn’t have been quiet.”

It’s Your Husband’s Responsibility to Handle It

“if it’s his family, he should be the one to say something.”

A Possible Reason to Let It Slide

“Well if shes super old and maybe losing it up top then I would let it ride. Might not be her fault.”

You Have Every Right to Be Mad

“I would be furious!! Comments like that are why so many girls have self-esteem issues! I wouldn’t have been able to keep my mouth shut on that!”

You Can Be Angry, But Not at Your Husband

“I would have given your husbands grandmother a piece of my mind at the table. Joking or not that’s not okay. But you can’t be upset with your husband for not standing up to her because you didn’t say anything either. “

Maybe It’s an “Old Person Thing”

“I would have been upset but on the other hand I know older people get mean and blunt as they get older and older.”

Take Care of Your Daughter

“I’d say that he needed to say something. Comments like that are extremely unnecessary, and all it’s going to do is give her a negative self-image. I’m sorry you had to go through that and even more sorry for what your daughter is feeling. Make sure you tell her she is beautiful no matter what the old hag says… (Not those exact words, of course. This strikes a nerve with me.).”

Be Angry, and Consider Making Changes to the Relationship

“I would not have kept quiet. I would have said something. I would be pissed with everyone involved. And probably not go back over there or allow the kids over there, if that’s the way they treat and talk to them.”

There’s a lot of good advice to parse through here. Some points to consider:

  • The original poster is certainly entitled to her anger! What an awful situation!
  • No young child deserves to be talked to like that.
  • Assuming the grandmother-in-law is of sound mind, there is not really an excuse for making a remark like that.
  • People disagree about whether or not the original poster should be mad at her husband for not handling the situation. One thing seems clear, however: She should talk to him and let him know, at least, how she feels about what happened. Work out a system to deal with issues like these moving forward.
  • Think about telling the grandmother-in-law about how remarks like that won’t go unchecked in the future.
