A Big Change
With all of the drama that surrounds the cast members of Teen Mom, it’s easy to forget that they’re all mothers! This means navigating the confusing but rewarding role of raising a child on top of all of the demands of being a reality star. Even though some of the mothers have put their children as their highest priority, others haven’t quite been able to find their balance between motherhood and stardom.
Farrah Abraham is still trying to do what’s best for her daughter, Sophia, who is already eight years old. So fans were interested to see that she made the decision to take Sophia out of traditional schooling, and her reason probably isn’t what you’d expect.
Farrah Abraham’s little girl, Sophia, is eight years old already, which means that she’s coming up on an important time of her education. Farrah has decided to shift gears a little bit, though, and pull her out of traditional schooling.
At the MTV Video Music Awards, she revealed that she decided to put Sophia into homeschooling. In an interview with In Touch, she said, “Sophia is the best! I’m just watching her and she’s like, ‘What is all of this?!’ It’s great to be watching her. Sophia started school. She’s doing homeschooling, so she gets to come to more events and that’s awesome.”
Farrah explained that she had multiple reasons to make this choice, and among them were concerns for Sophia’s social experience. “I decided to do that because, at school, I didn’t really want to make it about the bullying, dating, those things. It’s focusing more on her studies, traveling the world if she wants to do that while she is going to school.”
But she went on to add that this would also give Sophia more time for modeling. “She’s doing more runway so she’ll be at New York Fashion Week. She has a lot going on and this just helps her be the better her.”
For those of you who don’t know, Farrah loves to glam little Sophia up and has even made an appearance in Farrah’s music video for her song, “Blowin.” She was also on the cover of Farrah’s book, “My Teenage Dream Ended,” so it’s safe to say that Sophia has had a huge amount of exposure.
However, not all of Farrah’s fans are happy about her choice to introduce Sophia to the world of modelling so young. Fans sounded off in the comments of this Instagram post. User msjennybones wrote, “The photographer didn’t even post this photo on there own page… Kinda says how inappropriate it is that the person who took it doesn’t want to share it. And it’s not that she’s wearing make up at all. It’s her pose and the water… It’s way way way way inappropriate! Im sorry Sophia but your mama should delete this to protect you from pervs.”
User crissy_19xx chimed in, “So f**king disturbing knowing how sick this world is, and a parent that would do this.” Others, however, defended Farrah. User alexiss.jenkins wrote, “is this your child? nope. do you think her mother finds you the tiniest bit relevant in there lives? nope. she’s a child, I understand she doesn’t need make up but I bet if someone constantly told you how to raise your children (or future children if you don’t have any) you’d be upset.”
