Kourtney Kardashian reportedly wants to limit the amount of exposure her children are getting through her reality TV series Keeping Up With The Kardashians as it isn't "beneficial" for them.

The 39-year-old star was seen arguing with her younger sister Kim Kardashian West on the reality series as the pair clashed over Kourtney’s wish to film less and keep more of her life private.

''She is happy to be filming less for both herself and the kids," People quote a source as saying.

"As Kourtney and Scott's kids get older, especially Kourtney feels that public exposure is not really beneficial for the kids. There are already trolls that post nasty comments about the kids.

"They are too young to read about it yet, but Kourtney would hate for them to read it as they get older. She feels more and more protective of the kids.''

Kourtney shares three children with former partner Scott Disick, Mason (10), Penelope (7) and Reign (5).

Kourtney previously said on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, "It's not okay that I feel like I'm at my breaking point. I need a break and I don't want to film anymore.

"I have three kids that are my priority more than the show. What I'm saying is I'm getting to the point where I'm not happy. Everyone has their breaking point. Life is short. It's not all about filming this show."
