London: Kris Jenner, who has been slammed for putting her daughter Kim Kardashian on birth control at the tender age of 14, is now defending her actions, saying her liberal parenting ways were a strategy to “protect” her kids.

The ‘Keeping up the Kardashians’ matriarch admits she felt no hesitation putting “all” of her girls on the birth control pill as soon as they expressed an interest in sex.

“You want to protect your kids,” the Daily Mail quoted Jenner as telling TV personality Bethany Frankel, in an interview.

“Kim came to me and you know, was very honest with me and said ‘Mummy I think I’m feeling, you know, sexual.’

“What I did as a parent with all my girls, when I felt like it was that time in their life that they were going to that step... I drove as fast as I could to the gynecologist’s office,” she said.

Dressed in a demur white lace dress, Jenner is defiant in the interview.

“You can try and talk your kids out of (having sex), but unless you lock your child in the closet and throw the key away, they’re going to do what they feel.

“So my philosophy has also been make sure your kids are healthy, well taken care of and educated,” she said.

Jenner reveals the doctor who gave “all” her daughters birth control was the same doctor who delivered them as babies, and that her older girls were “different ages” when they went on the pill.
