When it comes to Farrah Abraham, this may not even rank as the most shocking thing she’s revealed this week, which says a lot, but …

Farrah told the media at last weekend’s MTV Video Music Awards that she’s homeschooling her daughter for a rather unorthodox reason.

If nothing else, this story offers a brief respite from discussion of Farrah’s vaginal rejuvenation, though it is somewhat troubling in its own way.

While many eight-year-olds were in bed on Sunday, you may have noticed that Abraham’s daughter Sophia joined her at the MTV VMAs.

How was Sophia able to attend the event?

School night, schmool night. Farrah answered simply that the youngster is being homeschooled these days, for precisely this reason:

More red carpets! More events! More time learning the ropes and sharing in her proud mom’s "career" pursuits in all their terrifying glory!

“She’s doing homeschooling, so she gets to come to more events and that’s awesome,” the 26-year-old Teen Mom star told In Touch Weekly.

This isn’t the first time Farrah has referenced this – she previously hinted at homeschooling Sophia because other kids are jealous of her.

Her previous school’s administrators apparently told Farrah that her showing up with a face of makeup on was causing her to be bullied.

That’s according to Farrah, so take it with 2-3 grains of salt … Abraham has been in a serious relationship with #alternativefacts for years.

Regardless of any bullying that may have occurred, she says the move to homeschooling allows Sophia to “be the better her” 24/7.

“I decided to do that because, at school, I didn’t really want to make it about the bullying, dating, those things,” Farrah said.

“It’s focusing more on her studies, while also traveling the world if she wants to do that while she is going to school."

Abraham, whose job as an educator evidently involves doing all she can to make Sophia the next big thing in entertainment, adds:

"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.”

“We do virtual schooling and with the help of me or a tutor, it’s easier for her to get through it," Farrah says. "She can be home."

"She can be anywhere! She’s virtual!”  

While the idea of Abraham educating anyone is enough to give us pause, remember that she perfected the art of the word salad.

The MTV reality star is, as The Ashley’s Reality Roundup and the gallery below point out, the literary genius of our generation.

Hey, when you could be in boring old second grade or focus on a modeling career, which would you rather choose if you were eight?

We suppose on the flip side, this was a woman who once said that she and Sophia do their own thing, so at least they’re bonding now?

Also, since Soph is already firing employees at her mom’s businesses, she might as well learn the ropes of the industry as soon as possible.

Farrah has taken heat for some of Sophia’s previous modeling jobs, but if you believe the young mom, this is just the little girl’s calling.

Posing suggestively in a bikini when your age doesn’t even have a one as the first digit yet sounds like a stretch to us, but hey, whatever.

What could possibly go wrong?!
