Farrah Abraham vanity is affecting her daughter's own self-esteem
Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham has made some questionable choices in her life when it comes to her career path, but is she making controversial parenting decisions, too?
During an interview with Us Weekly, Abraham revealed that her 6-year-old daughter, Sophia, values "how I've done my look and invested in myself." But could the importance she is placing on her daughter's looks be affecting the girl's self-confidence?
Abraham told the publication that her little girl is feeling a little insecure since losing her two front teeth, especially since Abraham's are perfect.
"My little Sophia, she's been going through a hard time right now losing all of her teeth, and she's not really so secure," Abraham said. "I think it's really a struggle losing your teeth right now when everyone's looking at looks. So, she lost her first big tooth, and she's just like, 'Mommy, I want teeth like yours!' and I've had my teeth cosmetically done, so they're looking pretty perfect."
The MTV star's stance on cosmetic surgery is pretty clear, but would she be OK with her daughter having it done?
"You'll see that my daughter does value how I've done my look and invested in myself, and I feel like if [plastic surgery is] not harming her and making her look better, and keeping her healthy into her older years, I have no issues with that," she explained. "I'm going to be supportive because it hurts me to see my daughter worrying about her looks, even while she's losing her teeth right now, so that's sad."
You'll probably remember that this is the same woman who waxed her daughter's unibrow. However, she did go on to explain she thinks her daughter is beautiful, no matter what.
"I think my daughter looks beautiful regardless if she's losing her baby teeth or if she's having a bad hair day," she continued. "I really embrace everything about my daughter. I think she's so perfect, gorgeous, and [I'm] thankful to God I have her. I encourage her to just look past some of those things."
