**comment from adam: Privilege exists. Hopefully, North will have tremendous privilege as her parents will take care to send her to the best, safest schools; take time they easily can afford to talk about life with her; travel with her from a young age; support (including economically) and nurture passions of hers; provide money to send her to whatever university she wants, allowing her the option of a liberal arts education where she will then need a further degree really to find a good job… or tell her of these plans and allow her into the entertainment industry only if it is truly her choice and something she chooses to be passionate about, rather than something that is chosen for her. Yes, hopefully her parents will take their tremendous wealth and use it to enrich the life of a young person so that she has the best possible chance of contributing mightily to society…
… And this also means growing North up to understand how unbelievably lucky she is to be born into the family she was born into. Hopefully they will do the things required to teach her that she doesn’t ‘deserve’ this immense privilege any more than the child of a homeless couple. But she does have it, so she should make the best of it. Hopefully they will take her to humanitarian projects and support work she does in that regard. (“Oh, you want to volunteer at a rape crisis center or building homes for the homeless this summer? We’ll give you some money you would have otherwise gotten working at the Gap if you do that.)
Having parents teach a strong work ethic is not antithetical to privilege in any way. Hopefully North will grow up understanding that she is privileged and will use that privilege towards far greater contribution to society — whether as a doctor, business woman, lawyer, professor, actress, artist, whatever — than her mother gives us.

@ella — “I have no trouble believing that when major problems come up in their marriage, rather than giving up, they’d put their family and their empire first and do whatever it takes to stay together.” Very well said.

@shannon from MN — “Or does she have a large staff on-hand to take care of her little kennel?” Yep, Paris has a veritable zoo of pets. She only takes the newest, littlest ones out in public.

@Ama — “I’d also like to know who in their right mind would spend $13,000 on a puppy” A person who has access to millions and millions of dollars.
