Khloe Kardashian is an outspoken mom who tells it straight when it comes to co-parenting her two children, True and Tatum, with her basketball star ex-partner Tristan Thompson. 

But it is a rule she has established with her sister Kourtney that has surprised fans. In an episode of Vanity Fair's web series, the 39-year-old mom-of-two was tasked with taking a lie detector test.

The Good American co-founder was previously asked if she would allow her daughter True, six, to have a sleepover at Kourtney's house she shares with her four children Mason, 14, Penelope, 11, Reign, nine, and baby Rocky and Blink-182 drummer husband Travis Barker.

 "Probably not," Khloe admitted. "And is that because we have too much fun?," Kourtney quipped, to which her younger sister replied: "No", adding, "I don't think we have enough time on this show for what the reason is."

Kourtney Kardashian has made it no secret that she favours an attachment style of parenting with her brood. It can't be said if this approach to parenting contributes to Khloe's reluctance to have her daughter stay at Kourt's $9 million Calabasas mansion, but it is certainly a divisive method among parenting experts. 

What is attachment parenting?

This style dictates that the parents and their child should maintain a strong level of closeness in terms of emotional responsiveness and physical touch. This could include responding to your baby's every cry, through to co-sleeping or breastfeeding on demand.

In a 2014 interview with Redbook magazine, the Poosh founder said that she "didn't plan" to adopt an attachment parenting style but that it "came naturally" to her.

"When I had Mason, I just felt really attached to him and wanted to bring him everywhere," Kourtney said on an episode of The Kardashians. "He ended up sleeping with me, and I breastfed for 14 months." Kourtney co-slept with Mason until he was seven and was still co-sleeping with Penelope when she was ten.

Khloe has adopted a more structured approach to parenting. "I am really strict. I have a schedule. I'm very militant with how I parent True, and I believe that a schedule saves everything," Khloe revealed in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres.

She also told Cosmopolitan UK that True's schedule dictates her own. "I try and take her to every gymnastics class and I schedule things around her schedule – I live and die by a schedule! Every single day, everything is accounted for and that gives me a sense of peace because there are typically no surprises," she admitted.
