Mom DELETES 14-year-old influencer daughter’s social media with 1.7 MILLION followers because it’s “unhealthy”
The mom of a teenage influencer DELETED her IG and TikTok accounts with 1.7M followers to teach her a valuable lesson.
Fernanda Rocha Kanner, from Brazil, took drastic measures to show her daughter, Valentina, that social media is “unhealthy.” The concerned mother deleted the 14-year-old’s TikTok and Instagram accounts because she didn’t want her daughter to judge herself based on “online feedback.”
Valentina, known on social media as Nina Rios, had gained over 1.7 million followers just before her mom decided to take action, Daily Mail reveals.
According to Fernanda, the role of a mother was “not to be your buddy.” However, she believes her daughter would probably realize that when she grows up.
The worried mom said:
“I don’t think it’s healthy even for an adult and much less for a teenager to base her self-discovery on online feedback. It’s hard enough for you to find out who you are at 14 years old. When there are two million you’ve never seen in your life thinking they know you, it’s even more dangerous. It’s easier to lose yourself.”
Fernanda says her decision was “radical” but “necessary.”
The mom knew it was time to step up when she scrolled through her daughter’s accounts and saw “30 identical selfies and little dances that anyone can do.” She said she didn’t want Valentina “to grow up believing she’s this character,” adding:
“I don’t want her advertising flammable polyester clothing made in China. I don’t want my brilliant daughter doing her daily dances like a trained baboon. It’s a sad generation for which this counts as fame.”
While many parents praised Fernanda for her decision, teenagers relating to her daughter’s struggle described her as a “possessive” mother.
“I obviously wasn’t very happy. I got quite angry.”
When asked whether she plans on returning to social media, she said:
“At the moment, I don’t want to. It’s going to be something that’s only going to get in my way and it will only make it worse.”
