Farrah Abraham’s daughter Sophia recently celebrated her 13th birthday by getting a septum piercing. The proud new teenager declared her happiness on Instagram. Fan reaction was not very positive.
Farrah is used to answering questions about her parenting skills. The Teen Mom troublemaker is constantly getting dragged by fans for what they see as neglectful mothering and a general bad take on life. Abraham is always able to explain it away.
TMZ recently caught up with Farrah to ask her about the fan backlash. Abraham said things have changed since she was a teen. It was better for a professional to do it than to have Sophia sneak off and get pierced in some other way.
“I think her generation of 13 is much different than my generation of 13. Sophia is the first… in my family to get a septum piercing, especially at 13.
I would rather it be by a professional, sanitized and clean, than my teen going, sneaking off and doing it herself and getting an infection.”
It sounds like there could be some trust issues between Farrah Abraham and Sophia. Farrah thinks Sophia would’ve been likely to get the piercing anyway. Instead of taking parental responsibility, Abraham has simply acquiesced to the wishes of her 13-year-old.
