"She has her own life and is doing her own thing, and I'm doing mine." - Farrah Abraham, on her daughter
Yes, this is something that the infamous Teen Mom said about her daughter, Sophia, when she was four.
Four. 4. Four GD years old.
Judging by recent developments, it's also probably something that she would still say here in late 2018.
Yep, it doesn't look like young Sophia, now all of nine years old, has much adult supervision at all nowadays.
Don't take our word for it. Take hers. Just read the kinds of things she's been sharing on social media lately.
And if she does have adult supervision ... well, then that's a separate issue. Perhaps even more concerning.
With that said, let's get after it.
How many times are we going to have to talk about Farrah and her complete lack of parenting skills? HOW MANY?!
It's always been excessive, how awful she is, but it's really been getting out of hand lately.
Just this month, she tried to convince Sophia that it would be a hilarious prank to convince someone that her dog had died, and then when her dog actually died, she took a video of Sophia crying instead of, you know, comforting her.
LOCK HER UP
Also this month, Farrah was officially charged with battery after getting violent with a hotel employee -- and, don't forget, during the original incident, Sophia was upstairs sleeping.
Earlier this year, she got a lot of negative attention for having Sophia in the room while she got butt injections, and for getting her to film the procedure.
Also earlier this year, she shocked us all when she said that she and Sophia take naked photos of each other and save them on their phones.
Come On, Farrah
There's just a whole, whole lot of weirdness going on in this little family, and thanks to some new posts Sophia made on a social media app called Musical.ly, the weirdness is just intensifying.
First off, there's this video she shared, and as you can see in her caption, she'd just gotten out of the shower. And you don't have to have a whole lot of common sense or do a whole lot of thinking to realize that's inappropriate.
Like, where was Farrah when Sophia filmed this? Why wouldn't she stop her? Or why wouldn't she teach her in the first place that this isn't great?
Why is Sophia even allowed to be on social media at all at her age? Especially on apps like this, where she can do these live videos.
Just a Little Supervision?
Remember a couple of years ago when Sophia had a Snapchat and was using it to talk to strangers? Why didn't Farrah learn her lesson then?
Hold On ...
We're not sure why Farrah still insists on letting Sophia "do her own thing," but obviously she is ... and it only gets worse from here.
Here's a video Sophia made last week and shared on her Facebook page. She's twerking in it, which is not really an activity you want to see a nine-year-old partaking in.
The video was so strange that Debra Danielsen, Farrah's mother and Sophia's grandmother, told The Ashley's Reality Roundup that she was "shocked" and "appalled" after seeing it.
“I can’t believe what I’m witnessing,” she said. “I just can’t.”
Tell 'Em, Deb!
“This is not appropriate at all. She’s nine years old!” she continued. “She should be in spelling bees and dressing up like a fairy princess with her friends, not doing things like this!”
“She needs to be with kids her own age, doing age-appropriate things. Education should be the main focus for Sophia, not all this other craziness going on in her life. My granddaughter should not be subjected to all of this very adult stuff happening in her life."
More Real Talk
Debra also said that “Farrah's world is different from what Sophia needs. She doesn’t have Sophia’s best interest at heart.”
Discussing Farrah's charges, she said “She needs to go to jail. Just like Amber needed it. Farrah needs it."
Think of the Children!
And the reason Deb thinks Farrah needs to go to jail? Sophia, of course!
No More Craziness
“I’m not out here trying to ruin Farrah,” she said. “I have kept my mouth closed a lot of the times when I could have said something. But at this point, I don’t know what to do for my granddaughter. She deserves a real shot at life, without all the craziness. She deserves to be a normal kid.”
Speaking of craziness, it's time to get into some dark stuff. Because remember the story about Farrah and Sophia's dog that passed away last week?
In another post on the app, Sophia seemed to say that she was responsible for his death.
"I was getting blue to go outside and my only choice was to toss him outside and then I did but then he went into shock and 30 seconds later he past with no heart beat," she wrote.
In Farrah's original story about what happened, she wrote that Blue was "put down around his dog door to go out to potty on his balcony" and then out of nowhere, Sophia saw him "just stop moving."
Putting those two stories together ... did Sophia accidentally toss the dog over the balcony? Is that what happened?
Mom to the Rescue
According to Farrah, no -- in a new interview, she said "Sophia was stressed from the unexplainable tragedy and like I at the time couldn’t say or process clearly."
The REAL Story
"Blue and our other Pomeranians have been stressed from construction at our building," she explained. “With a collapsing trachea issue we have been treating for two months, stress adds to this."
"Blue actually went limp once Sophia picked him up, as he was having anxiety again because of construction and didn’t want to go to the bathroom on the balcony.”
The Cause of Death Revealed
“Due to the Blue looking like he had a lack of oxygen, they believed it was his trachea that had collapsed,” Farrah continued. “Blue was perfectly healthy and happy. His medicine had been helping him.”
As for Sophia, she said “It will not be easy" for her, but "she is very excited to get Blue back once he is through the preservation process. We have to wait 6 months. No one can blame a child who is the best child to their best friend Blue.”
Except if Farrah knew the dog had an issue with a collapsing trachea, wouldn't that be the first thing she considered when he went limp?
In her original post, she said they thought he may have had low sugar, so they tried giving him some water with syrup. If she was miraculously able to think of something like that during such a scary time, why wouldn't she think "oh yeah, my dog has this thing where his TRACHEA COLLAPSES"?
What's More ...
ALSO, if the vet was able to tell that Blue was "looking like he had a lack of oxygen," then why was Farrah acting so confused in that Instagram post? It really does not sound like a mystery.
The REAL Mystery
Is Farrah trying to take some attention away from Sophia's statement that she "tossed" Blue right before he died? Maybe.
It's a Possibility
Or maybe she just really is this simple.
