Kim Kardashian says she tries to "take the high road" with Kanye for the sake of their kids
She's trying to "do whatever's best for the kids".
Kim Kardashian has opened up about trying to co-parent amid her strained relationship with Kanye West.
The reality star appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, during which she said she tries to "take the high road" even when publicly slammed by her ex.
When Ellen praised her for the "beautiful" way in which she "protects" Kanye for the sake of their four children, Kim credited the "good example" she has had in how her own parents navigated their divorce.
"I'm always just hopeful and no matter what goes on, it's the father of my kids. I'll always be protective. I always want my kids to just see the best of the best," she said.

"I just try to — as hard as it can be sometimes — I do try to ignore it and try to do whatever's best for the kids," she added. "Take the high road."
The Skims founder went on to explain that she maintains this sense of calm by asking herself what lesson she can learn from it.
"This was put in my life for a reason, these challenges, and as hard as it is I try to, like, sit still sometimes and say. 'Okay, what is this lesson? What am I meant to learn from it? How can I get through it and what is this challenge placed here in my life?'" she continued.
"I know it seems super zen and like, it's just really what I do."
The former couple share daughters North, 8, and Chicago, 4, as well as sons Saint, 6, and Psalm, 2.
Kim also spoke about her attitude to co-parenting in an interview with Vogue last month.
"You could be so hurt or angry at your ex, but I think in front of the kids, it always has to be 'Your dad's the best,'" she told the publication for her cover story. "Make sure you are your co-parent's biggest cheerleader, no matter what you're personally going through."
