Kim Kardashian is opening up about how she's adjusting to raising her four kids as a single mom.

As scenes play out from her travels with son Saint, 7½, and friends around Europe to watch different pro soccer teams on the latest episode of The Kardashians, the mom of four, 43, admits, "I think I'm still learning how to be a single parent."

"I just did the Jay Shetty podcast where I spoke about parenting, and I mean, I should be used to it by now, but everyone had a lot to say," she continues, referencing criticisms of her comments on struggling with time despite having household help.

"The struggles that my kids go through really have nothing to do with the amount of help that I have," she levels.

"Obviously, having nannies and a chef to help cook is beyond helpful. It's all about family and enjoying these moments. It takes a village to raise kids, but at the end of the day, your kids only want you."

"The one thing that everyone has in common is just the amount of time that we have. I'm raising four kids and I split my time between my work, my family, my four kids and I want to make sure that my kids have 90% of that."

In addition to Saint, Kardashian is also mom to Psalm, 4, Chicago, 5, and North, 10, sharing all four of her kids with ex Kanye West.

Last week, Kardashian discussed hiring a male nanny to spend time with son Saint.

"It's really hard for me to be really strict and to discipline a lot," Kardashian admitted. "My parents weren't strict at all and sometimes because I'm really busy, it would be amazing if I had a partner who would tap me out and take over and handle it but, you know, it can't happen like that."

"I do think that my household and even our family is very female-dominated. I recently hired a manny. I really wanted a male around that would be picking them up and taking them to sports, and I was scared out of my mind to tell their dad that."

Appearing in a recent issue of CR Fashion Book, the SKIMS co-founder talked about her life as a mom and learning to appreciate her kids as individuals.

"Motherhood is the most challenging and rewarding experience of life," she said. "The days are so long but the years are so short. I love the night snuggles, I love our morning madness before school — I love it all. Even when it seems overwhelming, I know that my babies will grow up and I will wish for the days of tantrums and the cute little PJs and bath time and book time. So, I cherish it all!"

Discussing her kids, she proudly shared, "Each one of my babies is so different and I love that and try to nurture that."

"Lately, I have been traveling with each of my children separately to take them on some one-on-one time exploring different cultures and worlds. And at the same time, doing things that they are passionate about," she continued.

"For example, Saint loves soccer so I’ve enjoyed traveling the world to see games and really bonding with him through the sport. I want all of my kids to be one hundred percent who they are."
