Ah, the trials and tribulations of motherhood. It’s refreshing to see that not even Kris Jenner can escape teenage angst.
Despite raising 5 other children, the infamous TV mom still can’t get a handle on how to deal with her 17-year-old daughter Kylie.
“It’s been two weeks since Kylie and I have had a real, true conversation, and it’s heartbreaking to me,” the embattled mom admitted in a previous episode. “I try to spend time with each one of my kids individually, and my grandkids but recently Kylie has been making this really tough.”
And like any mom with teenagers, Kris mused if it’s really just the age that’s making her daughter act out.
In an attempt to patch things up, the 59-year-old mother asked her daughter to come with her to visit her grandmother. As expected, the teenager didn’t find the idea too appealing and basically had to be ordered to go.

While Kris is struggling with Kylie, her ex-husband Bruce Jenner is also doing his best to smooth things out with his volatile daughter.
Admitting that mother-daughter relationships can indeed be difficult at that age, the Olympian reminded Kylie that she still has his support and he’s there “to cheer you up or keep you on a positive note.”
The planned outing did push through in this week’s show, despite Kylie being sulky all throughout the drive to her grandmother’s place.
However, it wouldn’t be a Keeping up with the Kardashians episode if no bombs were dropped. And this time around, it came in Kylie’s quiet and casual declaration that she’ll be moving out “as soon” as she turns 18.
That news is another thing that Kris would have to deal with but in the meantime, the mother-daughter duo did get some bonding time in at an amusement park.
Now we just have to wait for the next episodes to see how long this truce will last.
