Imagine having Farrah Abraham for a mom.
Or, it that thought experiment is too terrifying for a Friday, just take a good long look at the life of Sophia Abraham.
Sophia's been in the spotlight literally since the day she was born, and while many hoped she might be able to enjoy a somewhat normal childhood after Farrah got fired from Teen Mom OG, that hasn't turned out to be the case.
In fact, the problem of overexposure seems to have gotten worse, as Farrah drags the 10-year-old to red carpet events all over the world, as though Sophia is some sort of a fashion accessory.
And now, it seems that fishbowl existence is beginning to have a major impact on the young girl's mindset.
Take a look:
Like Mother, Like Daughter
Very few 10-year-olds spend as much time posing for selfies and attending red carpet events as Sophia Abraham.
To be fair, Farrah's daughter does seem to enjoy all the attention -- but that observation comes with two caveats:
Too Much, Too Soon
For one, even if she likes it, showering a 10-year-old with constant praise and attention from adults -- most of them strangers -- is probably not a good thing.
On top of that, the only insight we gain into Sophia's experience is filtered through Farrah, so naturally, we're given the impression that she's living every child's dream.
And so, despite how much time she spends in the public eye, it's still very difficult to tell exactly what's going on with Sophia.
Learning From the Past
But we know from many prior examples that child stars often find it difficult to navigate the road to adolescence. And at least those poor kids didn't have Farrah freakin' Abraham for a mother.
