Former “Teen Mom” star Farrah Abraham was just trying to organize a fun Labor Day trip with her daughter and showcase it on social media, but it created a firestorm among fans who instantly began a debate about judging the reality star’s parenting abilities. It all went down on Monday after Farrah shared video of her and 11-year-old Sofia taking a helicopter ride to celebrate the long holiday weekend.
Wearing matching yellow and black outfits, with shirts reading “QUEEN,” Farrah threw up dual peace signs before boarding the helicopter with her daughter.
“Queens weekend ??? #laborday for all who work and never take a day off! ???❤️” Farrah captioned her post while dropping hashtags like, “MomLife, #HandsOnMom, and #BestMomEver.
The two were seen loading up into the chopper, although it’s unclear where exactly Farrah and Sofia were flying to.
The day trip seemed innocent enough, and one fan even commented and gave Farrah props:
“A lot of her parenting is questionable but I can respect she always takes her daughter with her, never palms her off, hasn’t had any more children, hadn’t had multiple men around her daughter etc. like it’s always just been Farrah and Sophia, and that’s one thing she’s done right.”
However, others began questioning whether the relationship between Farrah and Sofia was “damaging.”
“[It’s] the worst thing she could do. They’re together 24/7 and Sophia doesn’t spend any time with friends or kids her own age. Everything is adult behaviour. A child needs to learn from other children. She has no social skills or learned how to interact with ppl. Farrah being the only influence in her life means she’s destined to have issues. Neither of them have friends. It’s hugely unhealthy and damaging,” one person wrote on Farrah’s Instagram feed.
Another user also through Farrah’s old “Teen Mom” co-star, Jenelle Evans under the bus in a comment:
“[Nailed] it! Completely agree. Anyone who thinks this trainwreck is a good mother obviously knows nothing about Farrah. It’s probably the same people who call Jenelle Evans a good mother.”
“[All] I see is adults acting as bullies that hide behind a keyboard. It’s a damn shame,” a Farrah supporter wrote in defense of the star’s relationship with her daughter.
“[If] you knew her .. not the what MTV showed you … you would know the real Farrah
Farrah Abraham has not yet responded to the recent criticism about her parenting, but she’s been defending herself for years and does not let the negativity get her down. She’s also not ashamed of her relationship with Sofia and the two constantly together. Along with traveling and appearing on social media together, they also participate in dual sponsorships as Farrah has been building her daughter’s brand.
Recently, they launched a podcast together, “Abraham Gals,” which touts itself as:
“A docu-reality podcast following OG Teen Mom Alum Farrah Abraham, a girl mom to Sophia Abraham, this momand daughter duo conquers the scripted scene in LA among the public antics this single mom goes through, elevating in this next decade for them both in this becoming of age podcast.”
