All together now: Backdoor Farrah’s kid has fans?? Even Goofy looks like he’s responding to that with an “HOL” (H’yuck out loud) in the picture above.
So, according to mother of the decade write-in candidate Farrah Abraham, it’s important for her six-year-old daughter Sophia to be an empathetic person and she’s teaching her how just like the rest of our parents did: by forcing her to do meet-and-greets with the legions of fans who wait hours to see her. Farrah’s Parenting 101 lesson happened over at Cosmopolitan, but I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before it shows up in some pediatrician’s thesis, because it’s obviously the next big thing in child development.
“Sophia is so quick to be like, ‘I don’t wanna take a photo,’ or, ‘I don’t really want to talk to them.’ She’s loving and she’s kind and she’s giving, and I understand that there’s a lot of people on us a lot of time and it’s a lot of giving, but I also want her to know that these people probably waited hours to meet her. These people traveled a whole day to get here. So it’s just really helping her be more, I guess, empathetic, with her fans, and really knowing what they’re going through to meet her.”
I know parenting is a super hard job and that Farrah is trying to be the best damn 40% medical grade plastic mommy she can be (see: Farrah heroically sacrificing $600 from her vaginal Botox fund and giving it to her daughter when she lost her two front teeth). But really, she doesn’t have to teach Sophia what empathy is by taking selfies with strangers; she already knows! Sophia learned what empathy was the first time she told someone who her mother was, and they responded by giving her a big hug and an “I’m so so sorry, honey.”
