While most parents strive to teach their young toddlers how to walk, talk, and sing nursery rhymes, controversial rapper Kanye West is more concerned that his 21-month-old daughter North West learn when it’s appropriate to smile!

Sources close to Kanye say he looks at himself, wife Kim Kardashian, and Nori as pieces of art, and thinks it’s important that every aspect of their interactions be perfected, down to when they should and shouldn’t smile Dish Nation is exclusively reporting.

EXCLUSIVE: Kanye’s Kids Kollection?

“Kanye literally spends most of the father/daughter bonding time he has with Nori on practicing situations in which it’s okay for her to smile,” a source close to the couple revealed.

“It’s a little creepy that he’s so intense with training North on this, but that’s just Kanye. Kim thought it was weird at first, but Kanye’s now got her trained on situations where it’s okay to smile. She bows down to whatever Kanye wants, and if he wants North to be trained on when it’s okay to smile, she’s all for it.”

One instance where Kanye is adamantly against cracking a grin — when photographers are around.

“There is a reason Nori NEVER smiles around photographers,” the insider dished.

“Photographers are the first people on his no-smile list.”

The 37-year-old rapper’s lack of smiling in pictures and interviews has been widely discussed and in January he finally opened up about his reasoning, claiming smiling isn’t “cool.”

“Back when I was working on Yeezus, I saw this book from the 1800’s and it was velvet-covered with brass and everything,” he said, referring to a book he found at a flea market in Paris.

“I looked at all these people’s photos and they look so real and their outfits were incredible and they weren’t smiling and people, you know the paparazzi, always come up to me, ‘Why you not smiling?’ and I think, not smiling makes me smile.

“When you see paintings in an old castle, people are not smiling cause it just wouldn’t look as cool.”

EXCLUSIVE: Will Kanye West Become The Next King Of Komedy?

The source adds that while Kanye and Kim, 34, believe that teaching North not to smile is just fine, her sisters Khloe and Kourtney are disturbed by the whole thing.

“Kourtney and Khloe are very troubled by the fact that Kanye spends all his bonding time with Nori on her smile, rather than teaching her the ABC’s or other things that will actually be beneficial to her,” the source added.

“They love Kanye, but think that Kim needs to stop acting like his little Barbie doll and instead stick up for herself and Nori. Especially when it comes to when the poor kid can and can’t smile.”
