TEEN Mom star Farrah Abraham opened up about explaining the 'birds and the bees' to her daughter Sophia, 11.
The Nebraska native, 29, spoke to Sophia about sex because the pre-teen was having more sleepovers and wanted to educate her.
The Teen Mom star who became pregnant with Sophia as a teenager said other parents were not doing the same, which concerned her.
When asked whether she'd given Sophia the sex talk, Farrah told Us: “Yes. Because when the kids all like to do sleepovers and some of her friends have older siblings, um, yeah, I definitely had to do a talk with the parents after what I heard.
“To be honest with you, it’s really only been prompted by all the other parents not really having those talks.”
She said those parents, especially with boys, had not spoken to their children about "what is proper".
Farrah explained: “That has kind of sped up the conversations that I have to have with my daughter, because of boys in her age group, and or, at her sleepovers with her girlfriends who have brothers."
She said she felt comfortable talking about sex and that it was really important to discuss with children.
“I’m all for talking about sex education. I’ve done that for national campaigns. I’ve public spoke to people [and] maybe one day I’ll be at Sophia’s high school, giving them the talk as they graduate,” Farrah said.
“I feel comfortable and others feel comfortable. And that’s why I get paid a lot of money to talk about no shaming for women.”
She also admitted that she does not hesitate to speak candidly with other parents when their kids have done something wrong.
“I will pick up the phone — I won’t go in person. I will go talk to the parents,” Farrah said.
“The parents have really, most of the parents were all older than me. So they have really honed in on their responsibility. "They’re like, ‘You know what? We let it go. We appreciate you stepping in. Thank you'."
But Farrah also does not put up with any online hate when it comes to her parenting style.
“I don’t really feel like I can be shamed when I protect my child,” she said.
“I think I’m doing pretty great. I mean, I’m cool to mom’s shame cause I’m the toughest mom. I can handle it, but I also really just don’t play into that because I protect my child.”
The reality television star – who recently explained that 11-year-old Sophia has been "craving" to get to know her dad's side of the family – revealed to Instagram on Friday that they are in Kansas City with Derek Underwood's family.
She shared a picture and video of the family group all together at what she called the 4th of July "pre-game."
“Sophia definitely craves getting to know her father’s side of the family because she just doesn’t have her dad,” the 29-year-old told In Touch.
“I’m just grateful we get a couple days together,” the glamorous mommy continued.
She told them that Derek’s father, Jerry Underwood, is welcoming to her daughter.
