Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham sat down with US Weekly to discuss how she wants to use old episodes of 16 and Pregnant to educate her daughter about sex when she grows up.
“I mean, that’s something that’s so normal to me,” the 25-year-old reality star told Us of bringing up the topic of sex with Sofia, now 7, at Johnny Donovan’s 30th birthday bash at XL Nightclub. “I public speak with teenagers and get to do fun things and awareness campaign. I think that’s really gotten me ready as a public speaker and gotten me ready to talk to my daughter more so than anything.”
She continued, “I can always play those 16 and Pregnant episodes and all these things back, that’s just, like, the help and I wouldn’t take that for granted,” she continued. “I would use it as a big tool.”
Having the “birds and the bees’ talk can be very tricky and awkward, but Abraham seems like she’s got it under control.
“I have to just see whatever her situation is, but I handle things and I communicate,” the Teen Mom OG star told Us. “I’m educated and I can talk through my frustrations or my emotions. … I wouldn’t want to create more of a stress, but I would always want to set her up for success.”
The proud mom added that she hopes her daughter is getting the most out of growing up in the spotlight.
“I’m trying to have her utilize all the wonderful things that we’ve been given from being on TV in a positive way from financial things to setting her up,” Abraham said. “But we’ll see where she is when she’s a teen, but I think she’ll be more progressed as a teenager than I was.”
