Kim Kardashian's 8-year-old daughter North West is already showing signs of narcissism by making fun of her home to upset her mother.

The TV reality star – who has North, Saint, 5, Chicago, three, and Psalm, two, with estranged husband Kanye West – said her eldest child has learned how to hurt her feelings.

Kim claims the child knows one of the easiest ways to hurt her feelings is to mock the "ugly" way she decorates their spacious $60 million mansion.

"Every time I get into some kind of disagreement with my daughter North, she thinks this is a dig to me and she'll say, 'Your house is so ugly. It's all white. Who lives like this?'

"She just thinks it gets to me and it is kind of mean because I like my house."

Mental health experts warn parents to be aware of signs of narcissism in children who have been raised on social media.

Hurtful, vindictive words that are meant to cause emotional pain in adults are typical of children with narcissistic personality disorder (NPD).

Narcissism is the prevailing attitude that a child is superior to others and is entitled to things that she wants.

According to WENN.com, the former "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star is guilty of offering her children a "good bribe" in order to win their cooperation and affection.

Speaking on the new Ellen Digital series Mom Confessions, she admitted: "My biggest parenting fail is I give in too easily sometimes and bribes. I'm guilty of a good bribe."

But Kim tries her best not to lie to her children.

"I really try not to lie to my kids," she said. "I was doing that at the beginning to try to get them out of the house or to try to go into a playdate or things like that, and I just realized quickly it wasn't going to work for me and I'd rather be honest with my kids."
