In a blog on Sulia.com, the 20-year-old MTV star recounted her decision to wax her toddler Sophia’s unibrow.
“Recently I could not ignore it, like I know I’ve seen madonna’s duaghter have a stand out uni brow, I remember when I was little I had a unibrow, but I couldn’t remember if there was an age limit, a rule!” she wrote.
Abraham, who has had a breast augmentation, a chin implant and rhinoplasty, finally decided the waxing had to be done.
Abraham says she tried to fix her daughter's unibrow by using wax, but her daughter was not happy about the wax. Abraham said she waited until her daughter fell asleep and proceeded to tweeze the little girl's eyebrows. The reality TV mom ended her post by saying, "Ah I feel like a good mom:)"
Sophia then fell asleep, Abraham said, so she used tweezers to remove the rest.
The issue here wasn't to teach your daughter to embrace your physical features. Farrah's idea of "good parenting" was to teach her daughter to get rid of society's ideas of "imperfections", and suffer though it.
That's how body dysmorphia begins for kids: when people criticize your body. It's scary enough to hear that 5-year-olds are going on diets. But here we have a 3-year-old who has already been told -- by her mother of all people -- that she's not up to snuff.
