'Teen Mom' Farrah Abraham: Why My Parents Make Me Furious

Farrah Abraham

Farrah is famous for her blowing up at her poor mom and dad, but the ‘Teen Mom’ star is now defending her actions in a brand-new interview.

Farrah Abraham‘s explosive fights with her parents have definitely drawn criticism from Teen Mom viewers, but in an interview with MomFinds.com, the young mother says her dramatic conflicts with her mom and dad are a result of a lack of communication — a problem she plans on completely fixing in her relationship with baby Sophia.

For starters, Farrah resents how her parents don’t offer better advice for her situation.

“My parents insist on speaking to me separately about the same topic over and over again trying to get their way,” Farrah explains. “They do not give me real support in terms of advice and being confident in my decisions and my life with Sophia.”

Aww! As if it isn’t hard enough to raise a daughter on her own, she must really miss the support! According to Farrah, talking out a problem makes it a lot easier to handle.

“I make sure everyone communicates and that we confront an issue before it turns in to a fight,” Farrah adds.  “But talking, talking, talking is all it takes.”

We’re glad Farrah and Sophia won’t fight as much as Farrah does with her parents — hopefully!!

What do you think of Farrah’s problem solving skills, HollyMoms?

If everyone seems to feel the SAME way about her and say the exact same things it has to be true. I agree and honestly I can’t stand her either. As much as I skip through her segment, I do with ambers too. At least Farrah suffered the loss of Sophia’s father. What’s nasty ambers excuse? Between these two girls, I almost never watch teen mom anymore..

The reason Farrah’s parents make her furious is because she likes to act like she is soooo mature and independent and capable of making her own decidions but she NEEDS her parents help constantly. Dear Farrah, being an adult means being able to stand on your own two feet and not needing your parents to babysit all the time or to put their lives on hold while they move you to a different State and being able to pay your own bills. You do not do any of those things. If you want your parents to butt out of your life then stop needing them so much!! When they see you doing things on your own they may start having some respect for you. As long as you need them to take care of everything, they have all the power.

PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!! Farrah do you really believe we are stupid. Communication? You yell so how can they communicate with a
screaming fool. Advice? you think you know it all so how can they give a know-it-all advice. MOM & DAD stop taking Farrah’s calls and do not help her in any way. Tough love is what she needs. Make her raise her daughter for a while and maybe she will come back with respect for both of you. I know it will work because I had to do it and my daughter and I are close now and she treats me with respect. It was so hard .

Farrah, you little spoiled diva. Try and get a clue, and while you’re at it, tell your sister to do the same. You only have one mother. She’s not perfect; neither are you. Try and put yourself in her position 15 years from now, huh?

When Farrah comes on, I treat it like a commercial is on. I can’t watch her. She thinks she has it so bad and has been through all these things in life. She has no clue what life is really about and how hard it REALLY is for some people. She has it easy and has played on the pity far too long. Although her mom has some problems, she is there for her daughter and both the mom and dad bend over backwards for her. She thinks she’s something hot, but sorry Farrah…you’re not. There’s no boob job, hair style or clothes that could cover up the ugly that she penetrates in her attitude and behavior. I love the other girls on Teen mom though!!

This girl has a disgusting attitude. I would be so ashamed if i were her. I wonder if she realizes how terrible she looks when she sees these teen mom episodes. She is lucky to have a supportive family but, one day she will push too far and then she will really be on her own.

And she likes to create these sob stories about how hard it is to meet men however, most men would be horrified to date such a little snit like her.

Disgrace.

Farrah will continue to use Sophia to control her mother, Those poor grand parents are in for another 15 years of hell with Farrah, she has the say so over that little girl and she knows how to use her against her parents, I hope one day when Farrah rolls her eyes some one will smack her a good one. I don’t think Ashley is any better, and who calls their dad by his name? Most dis-respectful girl I have ever seen.

Farrah is rude and disrespectful – Did you see the way she treated her apartment neighbor on their first date (golfing and dinner) on Episode 3 or 4 of Teen Mom? The poor guy asked Farrah what she liked to do when she isn’t working and she blew up!

Farah is a hateful brat, inconsiderate and a loser. She defines what entitlement is, blames others for her failures, and complains about everything. Wake up girl, stop acting like a prima donna….make something of yourself and raise your daughter better as you are setting an example for her….and so far it is pretty lame.

I get it. Her parents are beyond crazy! But no parent who has put endless years and love into making their child the best they can should be treated like that. Unacceptable. Farrah still needs her parents (example: when her mom told her to check the sex predators around her. it’s small but she could’ve been in danger if her mom hadn’t warned her. at least she is aware now.) Her mother’s intentions are not to be a controlling, “unsupportive” person and Farrah needs to see beyond her own feelings and walk a mile in her mother’s shoes. The only thing in the past couple years that I can agree with is her mother’s creepy obsession with Sophia. At the same time, she practically raised Sophia while Farrah was doing modeling jobs, dating, partying, and not giving two shxts about her daughter. Anyway, the point of my rant was…

While her parents are 110% crazy, Farrah needs to tone it down 5 notches because they do mean well.

This young lady is so self centered she cant see past her own nose. She acts like the world owes her something and her parents owe her everything. They keep giving and giving to her and she just expects more. If I were them I would let her be on her own like she wants with absolutely no support at all and just watch her crumble. Also I think she needs a new shrink this one doesn’t seem to be helping. Maybe if her parents recorded the way she talks to them and plays it back to her she will realize how awful she is to them Shame on you Farrah, I hope Sophia stops talking like you cause she is already headed in the same direction.

AHA, she love fighting with her mom. She is rude! Her parents helped her in everything. Her parents dont support her but yet, her father drove 15 hours to help her move her belongings to Florida. If that not support, I dont know what it is. How many kids would wish they had at least one parent who care! Sophia is already talking to her the way she talk to her parents! Can we say Karma!

It’s very clear to me that Farrah’s parents are control freaks and that Farrah has found her voice to react to their controlling ways. However, Farrah is still very young and needs to continue seeing the therapist who can help channel the anger that she has bottled up inside. It’s going to take alot of therapy to keep herself in check and help her solve problems in an adult capacity. On the positive note : Farrah’s parents have helped her and Farrah is seeing a therapist. It’s too bad the family isn’t continuing their therapy. They need it as well. (note to Farrah’s mom : Sophia is Farrah’s baby not yours)

Her parents are not control freaks…they are what Farrah created. When you are off running around like a single girl when you have a baby…living in their house and then their rental house without paying for a single thing, getting a nice new car and can talk to and treat them any way you want…you get parents like hers. Both of their daughters are the most ungrateful, spoiled and self centered girls I have ever seen. None of the other mothers on the show have had everything handed to them on a silver platter, then hit their parents over with that same platter. The mothers who actually had to work and struggle to survive are the truely good examples for their kids and other teens who are watching the show. Farrah, get over yourself or Sophia will feel the same about you as you do about your own mother. You should NEVER speak to your mother the way you do, in front of your child! Every time your parents do something nice for you, all you do is talk down to them. If I was Michael (your dad) I would have told you to walk your happy ass to Florida, had you told me what I was going to do and when I was going to do it. One minute you hate your mother and don’t want her around, but WAIT—you found a man stupid enough to take you on a trip to Texas and all of a sudden you want your “mommy” to come back and stay with your daughter. Sad really…a new generation will suffer with mothers like her.

Amen! The way Farrah talks to her parents AS they are helping her is amazing. She is telling them what to do and how to do it, and then complaining all the while!

Why is being a teen mom glorified? years ago Caucasian teens had abortions and pretended to be pure being an unwed mother was for minorities (a word i do not like). Now they are making money to be rude bad parents. i am tired of seeing them on magazine covers. you made a bad choice, now strive to make the most of your life and love your child!!!

It comes from both sides. Yes her parents seem overbearing and annoying, but my, is she ever rude to them, too.

IMO, the whole family is messed up.

Can’t stand that girl! She is so disrespectful to everybody but especially to her parents. Her stepfather Michael is so good and kind to her and she is a complete b**ch to him. I wonder if she even has any friends? She really needs a reality check soon!

It is more than I can take and no longer watch the show. Farrah is incredibly self-centered and negative about anything her parents have to say. The scene in restaurant with sister was out and out abusive toward the mom. She may be a little overbearing but doesn’t deserve to be abused. If that is what Farrah calls “talk” she can have it and good luck on Sophia not picking it up!

Seriously…she thinks shes not going to let that happen with her and Sophia?? Sofia is already getting Farrahs attitude! Farrah is just a spoiled brat that has no respect whatsoever for her parents. They try to talk to her and then she gets all pissy whenever they say anything. Its not your parents that have the problem farrah…its YOU!

agreed. has she lost her mind? does she really think she can go through life treating people like crap and it won’t come back to her? everytime i turn around, Farrah’s parents are helping her. She thanks them by acting like a complete and total dick. being mean to your parents who have bent over backwards to help you and your kid does not make you tough, independent or mature. it’s clear who’s being childish and who isn’t.
