Kim Kardashian West is keeping her kids close after her scary robbery in Paris.

The 35-year-old reality superstar is currently spending as much time as possible with her two children with husband Kanye West -- 3-year-old North and 9-month-old Saint -- a source close to Kim tells ET. Fortunately, North and Saint were in New York City with Kanye, a nanny, and a family friend during the robbery, a source previously told ET.

"They don't know what is going on, thankfully," the source says. "She tries not to cry in front of North, but it's been tough."

Kim is clearly still dealing with the aftermath of the terrifying incident, the source shares.

"She still gets emotional thinking about the incident," the source says. "I don't think the flashbacks will go away anytime soon though. It's going to take a while for those to stop, as with any traumatic experience like that."

Kim tearfully begged for her life while being robbed, our source previously told ET. The mother of two was held at gunpoint and tied up inside the luxury apartment she was staying at for Paris Fashion Week.

"All she kept saying over and over is, 'I have kids. Take anything you want. Please don't kill me. Please don't kill me,'" the source said. "She is very upset and can't stop thinking about what could have happened. The scariest part for her throughout this experience is the fact that it could have been a lot worse, and she couldn't imagine what that would have been like for her children."

On Thursday, Kim stepped out with her entire family in NYC for the first time since the robbery on Sunday, heading home to Los Angeles. Kim's bodyguard, Pascal Duvier, was also with the family of four.

According to our source, Kanye and Kim are now seriously reassessing their security measures, but standing behind Pascal.

"Kanye is freaking out -- this really threw him for a loop," the source said on Tuesday. "There will be a lot of things that change now in terms of security, especially with the children."

"Kim does not hold Pascal responsible for one second," the source added. "He was done working for her when this happened. Also, Pascal is not an armed bodyguard."
