Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick have had quite a roller-coaster relationship over the years. Keeping Up With The Kardashians fans know that Scott’s wild antics have gotten him into trouble with Kourtney more than once. From leaving her at home alone to raise the kids while he partied with friends to uncontrollable fits of rage, Scott has pushed the limits with Kourtney in many ways.
Despite the fact that they’ve broken up, the exes have three kids together, Mason, Penelope, and Reign. Kourtney has committed to co-parenting with Scott but created a list of rules that he has to abide by to remain in the lives of their kids.
The rules have changed over the years but one thing remains the same: Kourtney puts the safety of her children first. Scott has been forced to undergo breathalyzer tests and even have supervised visits to be around the children. Kourtney has insisted that he drop his party friends and be a more “hands-on” dad.
The duo may have moved on from their romance but they work hard to keep things as normal as possible for their kids. Please enjoy this list of 20 rules Kourtney Kardashian has made Scott Disick follow.
20 He Couldn't Party With His Friends
It’s no secret that Scott used to love to party and he had an entire crew of friends that he'd go out on the town with. Kourtney was often left at home to watch the kids while Scott partied the night away. So, she put her foot down and forbade him from hanging out with certain friends.
Kourtney pretty much cut him off from having any contact with the bad influencers in his life. A family insider told OK Magazine, “She’s even laid down the law that he can’t talk to any of his “party pals” for any reason.”
19 No More Club Appearances
Scott used to make bank at paid night club appearances. Kourtney took issue with the fact that he spent his working nights drinking cocktails and getting a bit too close to women in the VIP lounges at the clubs. He would often spiral out of control and cause all sorts of trouble.
After one too many nights when Scott didn’t even return home in the morning after being out and partying, Kourtney finally had enough. An insider told OK Magazine, “No more nightclubs! Kourtney has shut down one of Disick’s main sources of income since that’s what caused their split to begin with.”
18 The Children Co-Slept In Their Bed
Kourtney has made it clear that she is an attachment style parent and insisted that her children sleep with her. This means that Scott had to share his bed with the babies. She even put her love for co-sleeping on full display when she posted a throwback pic on IG.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star shared a photo of her cuddling with baby Mason and captioned the photo: “I found this picture of me sleeping with my first little angel baby, Monsieur Mason Dash. This is what life is all about.”
Scott more than likely had no say in the matter.
17 He Has To Be An Involved Dad
Kourtney often felt like a single mom when Scott went on wild benders. So, she made it clear that he had to be more involved with their children if he wanted to be in their lives. According to the Inquisitr, Kourtney was tired of him being an absent dad and demanded that he be more “hands-on.” The media outlet states,
“When Disick was caught [stepping out], Kourtney stepped up and did everything to make sure the children were doing well. She took them to the movies, had pajama parties at home, and colored with them. She truly stepped up, but she wants Disick to be their father again.”
16 He Can't Barge Into Kourtney's House
Kourtney and Scott split up in 2015 and during the Season 14 finale of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the exes had to lay down a few ground rules for their relationship moving forward. Kourtney had to let Scott know he no longer lived in her house and had to respect her wishes.
"I just feel like we should discuss some of the boundaries in the house," Kardashian told Disick. "I feel like sometimes, because this was your house, sometimes I feel like you walk in like it still is." She made it clear that he needed to knock before entering her home.
15 No Introducing Girlfriends To The Kids Unless It's Serious
Scott started dating Sofia Richie in September 2017. Kourtney made sure that his new girlfriend didn’t meet the kids until Scott had been dating her for a little while. A family insider told In Touch the argument started when Scott wanted to introduce Sofia to Mason, Penelope, and Reign.
“Kourtney thinks Sofia is too young to be a good role model,” dished the insider. “She insists that Scott has to be in a serious relationship for at least six months before introducing a girlfriend to the children.”
They have since not only met Sofia but the entire family has actually gone on vacations with her.
14 Family Vacations Are A Must
Despite being broken up, Scott and Kourtney often go on family vacations with the kids. Both have shared family vacay pics in such exotic places as Hawaii and Mexico. This is just one example of how hard Kourtney works to keep family life as normal as possible for her children.
Kourtney opened up about her complicated relationship with Scott when she was a guest on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, saying, "Well, we're not together. I feel like every day is different, but we're totally getting along. Like, we have three beautiful kids together...But, you know, he's family. He'll always be."
13 He Can't Interfere With Her Love Life
Scott couldn’t handle his emotions when Kourtney started dating after their split. When the photographers took photos of her having dinner with Younes Bendjima, Kourtney called Scott to let him know. Let’s just say that he didn’t take it well.
During an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kourtney revealed that her ex had become angry at Younes. “Scott is like threatening me,” Kourtney said. “He’s like, ‘Your little friend is gonna get beat up.'”
She was forced to make it a rule that if he wanted to see the children then he couldn’t threaten her boyfriends and had to give her the space to date other people.
12 He Has To Spend Time With The Kardashian Family
The entire Kardashian crew are very close and Kourtney requires Scott to spend quality time with her entire family. Since Scott lost both of his parents, the Kardashians have taken him in as one of their own, despite the fact that he and Kourtney broke up.
An insider close to the family revealed the details to OK Magazine, saying, “Kourtney has requested that Scott spend time with the entire family with her sisters, brother, and even his mother-in-law, Kris Jenner.”
He is still featured often on Keeping Up With The Kardashians and has managed to remain tight with all of them.
11 No Gluten Or Dairy For The Children
Everybody knows that Kourtney likes to live a healthy lifestyle and demands that Scott feed their children nutritious meals when they are spending time with him. She forces her kids to eat a diet free of gluten and dairy.
Kourtney took to her blog to delve into her dietary choices for her family. “I have noticed a great positive change in behavior with my children when we stick to a gluten- and dairy-free diet,” she wrote. “I don't think everyone needs to eat this way but we had muscle testing done, which showed we all have sensitivities to corn, gluten, and dairy.”
10 She Made Him Submit To Breathalyzer Tests
Scott hit a rough patch in 2017 when he learned about Kourtney’s new boyfriend, Younes Bendjima. He reverted back to his partying ways and Kourtney became on edge about his behavior. She forced him to submit to a breathalyzer test before he could be around their kids.
An insider close to the situation told Radar Online, “She is requiring him to take a Breathalyzer test before he takes the kids anywhere by himself,” they said. “Kourtney hates feeling like she's coming between a father and his kids, but she'll do what she feels is necessary to ensure her children's safety.”
9 He Had To Have Supervised Visits With The Children
2015 was a hard year for Scott and he checked himself into rehab to help overcome his addiction issues. Kourtney finally had enough of his antics and broke up with him. When he was released, she made it clear that he had to get his act together if he wanted to have access to the children.
Hollywood Life spoke with an insider who said that their visits had to be supervised. “One of their nannies must supervise the kids when they are at Scott’s house. Kourtney doesn’t want the kids at risk if Scott decides to get out of control and drink, or invite any wild friends over,” they said.
8 No Microwave Cooking
One rule that might sound a bit extreme to some is that Kourtney refuses to cook meals in a microwave oven. It’s only natural to assume that she would hold Scott to the same set of standards and not allow him to use the appliance for their kiddos, either.
Kourtney discussed her decision on her personal app, writing, “When I had Mason, I did a lot of health-related research and decided to get rid of my microwave when I read that toxins from plastic containers can be transferred to food when reheated (this applies to BPA-free plastic containers too).”
7 No Revenge Sprees With Random Girls
Scott may have restricted his partying ways now that he’s dating Sofia Richie but he used to have wild nights out with other girls to make Kourtney jealous. The worst was when she went on a romantic holiday to Cannes, France with Younes Bendjima and Scott followed them.
He hooked up with Bella Thorne and the two were photographed getting cozy. The plan backfired, as reported by TMZ. “Kourtney was furious with Scott after he had a jealousy-fueled party spree and even kept the kids from him until he cleaned up his act,” an insider close to the family said.
6 Strict Technology Rules For The Kids
When it comes to her children, Kourtney enforces very strict screen time rules. We can only assume that she requires Scott to uphold the same technology limitations when the kids are with him. She requires Mason, Penelope, and Reign to stick to a stringent screen schedule when they are at home.
She explained her routine on her personal blog. "Now that all my kids are over the age of two, I do allow them limited time to play video games and watch television," she wrote. "I allow 30 minutes of video game time during the week and an hour on the weekends."
5 No Hugs When He Greets Kourtney
Scott actually set a boundary of his own on the Season 14 finale of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. He made it clear that he needed some personal space when he and Kourtney greeted each other.
Scott said, "I was also thinking I have a boundary. I don’t really wanna hug anymore. I think we should just shake hands when we see each other. Is that cool?" Kourtney agreed to abide by his rules and the exes jokingly decided to fist bump when they greeted one another.
"I'll meet you in the middle there," Scott said. "If you're cool with that, then I'm cool with your stuff."
4 No Plastic Containers In The Kitchen
Kourtney has been known to have some pretty wacky rules when it comes to her kitchen. She refuses to use any plastic containers to avoid harmful toxins such as BPA. It’s probably safe to say that she prefers Scott to do the same when the children are with him. She seems adamant about protecting their kids from harmful chemicals that can be found in plastic.
She took to her blog, writing, "We use both glass and stainless steel containers instead of Tupperware for leftovers and to store food in my pantry. For the kids' lunches, we use stainless steel bento boxes.”
3 Only Non-Toxic Toys For The Children
Another rule that Kourtney has enforced for her children is that she prefers that they play with non-toxic and wooden toys. Scott may have his own opinion on what their children play with but Kourtney has been very vocal about her wishes.
Kourtney shared her opinion on the subject during an episode of her weekly parenting vlog, Kourtney’s Mommy Blog, saying, "I think just to have the knowledge of why wooden toys could be better than plastic toys, in general, is a good thing and just like everything in moderation. And wooden toys are better for the environment."
2 Kourtney's Bedroom Is Off Limits
Kourtney made her bedroom off limits to Scott during their discussion about boundaries during Season 14 of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. She didn’t like it when he wandered into her room unannounced.
She implied that it might be awkward for her boyfriend to have Scott just barge in on a whim. "I feel like it has to make sense for my relationship, too," she said. "Like, if you just wander into my bedroom and go, 'Hey, can I see all your sunglasses?'"
Scott responded, "There's obviously some boundaries that we both need to respect. I don't want you to be uncomfortable."
1 He Must Co-Parent With Kourtney
It’s clear that despite the fact that Kourtney and Scott are no longer a couple, they care deeply for one another. She opened up to People about how important it is for them to co-parent their children together, despite no longer being romantically involved.
“I think Scott will always be family, and so we really try to have a good relationship for the kids," Kourtney said. When asked if their other relationships complicate things between them, she replied, ”I think you’ll see that on the season a bit, but you know we really do our best to make the kids the priority."
