When you have six kids to look after and worry about—like Kim Zolciak-Biermann—you have to get a little creative with your parenting and rely on any and all tricks you come up with… but her latest technique is not something we recommend anyone trying at home!
“If I had my way, I’d keep her in a little box. I’d take her down when I want to play and then put her back up on the shelf,” Kim explained on last night’s episode of Don’t Be Tardy.
Before you ask, she’s not talking about a doll. She’s referring to her 17-year-old daughter Brielle!
“I’m nauseous at the thought of Brielle turning 18 and having her own life,” the former Real Housewives of Atlanta star confessed on her show.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Kim has shown her overprotective side!
On last week’s Don’t Be Tardy, she admitted she thought the high school senior is “a pretty good kid”—but quickly became worried about the possibility of drugs when her husband Kroy warned “I don’t think she’s as perfect as you think she is.”

And what’s Brielle’s take on all of this? Well, she pretty much feels the same way as every other teenager. The great philosopher Will Smith said it best when he sang, “Parents just don’t understand!”
“My mom really has a hard time letting go,” a depleted Brielle told the cameras. “She needs to let me grow up. She’s got five other kids she can worry about.”
