Kelly Clarkson's kids don't understand 'fame' just yet.

"They don't know the fame thing yet. They just think, 'Everybody can do that, right?'" the "Stronger" singer admitted to a news publication during SiriusXM’s Next Generation Industry & Press Preview event in New York City on Wednesday, November 8.

"Which is kind of cool, but at the same time you want to teach them the gratitude and appreciation factor. Privilege is definitely taught in my household. They're annoyed with it, probably," quipped Clarkson, who has previously been candid about growing up in poverty.

But for River and Remington, living a celebrity lifestyle is all they've ever known, as they've seen their mom perform in front of large crowds and appear on their television screens since they were born.

The little ones don't even think twice about joining their mom on stage at her concerts!

"Mine come out with me all the time. They recently did in Vegas when I did these shows in the summer," she explained, noting, "but they ask to. I don't ask them."

"It's so normalized for them. So, they don't even see it as anything weird. They're like, 'Can I bring my friend?' And I'm like, 'OK, well, maybe we'll just bring you right now,'" the "Because Of You" singer recalled of conversations she's had with her kids.

Clarkson confessed "it's hard" at times to teach her and her ex-husband Brandon Blackstock's children about the abnormalities of their unique lives.

In an effort to let her kids be kids, Clarkson frequently has at-home "dance parties" with River and Remington.

"They wanted to listen to it all the time before it came out, and now it's out. So, now she gets excited about it, but she gets a little nervous," Clarkson shared before opening up about the uncharted waters of her daughter beginning to grow up.

"I didn't even think about it, but, you know, it's now kind of brought to my attention of like — hey, she's gonna get to that stage where she's like, 'Mom, don't do this,' or 'Don't do that,' but she loves it right now," the mom-of-two expressed. "She actually calls it her song."
