In an exclusive interview with In Touch, Teen Mom star Farrah Abraham defends her actions after she revealed on her blog that she plucked daughter Sophia’s barely there “unibrow” while sleeping.
“I’m a good mom,” she tells In Touch, on newsstands now. “Sophia is told every day that she’s beautiful, but that doesn’t mean I should ignore real hair-growth issues. The public is putting everything in one pot. You need to separate love and hygiene.”
She continues on the “hygiene” issue, “I take my experiences of self doubt and I try to remember growth changes so that I can now best help Sophia, because I do not want any of these small hygiene changes to effect her life, her joy, her fun.”

Farrah first explained to In Touch that the reason she did it was because Sophia “was being bullied.” But when pushed, she admits it wasn’t really Sophia being pressured; it was herself. “It was other mothers and men I’ve dated and just random people commenting [to me],” she says. “I didn’t want anything to lower my baby’s self-esteem!”
“People are saying that what I did was horrible and hurtful,” she explains. “But Sophia was not harmed.”
