Over two months after North West booked her first modeling campaign alongside some of her famous family members, the 5-year-old daughter of Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West made her runway debut! Time

Some Kim Kardashian followers were surprised at her 5-year-old daughter North West's look at the Kardashian-Jenner Christmas party Monday, which included bright red lipstick.

Kardashian shared several snaps with husband Kanye West with their three children on Instagram and Twitter, with North posing alongside baby Chicago and 3-year-old Saint.

"It just might be a new Classic Red Lip I have launch VERY soon," Kardashian tweeted of North's makeup, suggesting the red lipstick is part of her KKW makeup collection.

However, some commenters criticized Kardashian's decision to let her young daughter wear lipstick, suggesting she is too young for makeup.

Create tech-free zones. Keep family mealtimes, other family and social gatherings, and children's bedrooms screen free. Turn off televisions that you aren't watching, because background TV can get in the way of face-to-face time with kids. Recharge devices overnight—outside your child's bedroom to help him or her avoid the temptation to use them when they should be sleeping. These changes encourage more family time, healthier eating habits, and better sleep.

"Really Kim Nori is wearing red lipstick teaching her to be superficial from a young age," one Instagram commenter wrote . "Thank god Beyonce is keeping you away from her kids."

"North is too young for makeup," another disapproving fan wrote on Instagram. "Control ur kids sheesh. Let kids be kids."

"Nice pic but why does your baby girl have on lipstick? What is wrong with you?" commented another Instagram critic.

One Twitter user commented on the photos, "Make up on a little girl..why tho?"

"Why is north wearing red lipstick, I wasn't allowed to wear it until I was sixteen," wrote another .

Kardashian seemingly defended North's lipstick in another tweet , writing, "She picked it though! It’s a special occasion!"

In an interview earlier this month with Refinery29 , Kardashian claimed that North is "into makeup for sure" and said that she gives her daughter extra products she receives from brands.

“She had friends over this weekend and some of her girlfriends came and they were just all in her room, giving themselves makeovers," she said. “I was like, OK, she’s really, really into makeup. When companies send makeup and I have a lot, I’ll give it to her.”

Kardashian did clarify that she has rules against certain things North isn't allowed to wear.

“I don’t think she should wear lashes or too dark of a lipstick," she said.

Read books together every day. Get started when he's a newborn; babies love listening to the sound of their parents' voices. Cuddling up with your child and a book is a great bonding experience that will set him up for a lifetime of reading.

Remember: Kids will be kids. Kids will make mistakes using media. Try to handle errors with empathy and turn a mistake into a teachable moment. But some indiscretions, such as sexting, bullying, or posting self-harm images, may be a red flag that hints at trouble ahead. Parents must observe carefully their children's behaviors and, if needed, enlist supportive professional help, including the family pediatrician.

Screen time shouldn't always be alone time. Co-view, co-play and co-engage with your children when they are using screens—​it encourages social interactions, bonding, and learning. Play a video game with your kids. It's a good way to demonstrate good sportsmanship and gaming etiquette. Watch a show with them; you will have the opportunity to introduce and share your own life experiences and perspectives—and guidance. Don't just monitor them online—interact with them, so you can understand what they are doing and be a part of it.

Building confidence. Use descriptive praise to build confidence. An example would be “I like the way you picked up your toys. You’re so helpful,” instead of “that’s great.” Praise strengths unrelated to talking as well such as athletic skills, being organized, independent, or careful.
