‘LPBW’: Tori Roloff Speaks Up Over Mom Shaming – Says It’s Not Cool

LPBW fans love it when Tori Roloff posts to Instagram but she spoke up about mom shaming, saying it’s not cool. She noticed that more often these days, followers give her “negative comments and feedback” on her “social media.” That’s not what she wants to use her social platforms for. In fact, the issue’s been sitting on her “heart lately.”

‘LPBW’ Tori’s not looking for praise as a good mom

Tori Roloff reminded fans that she’s not fishing for nice comments. She reiterated that “she’s the best (mom) she knows how to be.” In her Instagram post, the star of TLC’s reality show reminded everyone to “lift one another up rather than knock each other down.” Social media may often bring pain, as too often people forget there’s a real person out there behind the screen. She added that she tries to not take the negativity on board. In fact, she realises there will always be some negativity. Therefore, you can’t please everyone all the time, after all.

For fans of LPBW, there’s always a fear that Tori Roloff may stop sharing so many of Baby Jackson’s milestones. The fear arises because of mom-shaming comments and trolling. Although her fans often step up to defend her, that ends up in arguments as well, casting a negative pall. In fact, Tori notes that she does post a lot online as she puts her “tactics out there.” She tries to share her “life as honestly as possible.”

Mom shaming’s not cool as Tori uses social media to brighten other peoples lives

Considering Tori uses LPBW and the internet for spreading lightness to others, it’s amazing how negativity creeps in. The Roloff family never tear anyone down on the internet. While nobody’s perfect, and none of them claim to be, their whole message is that life’s obstacles make people stronger. They try and help people become the best that they can be.

The whole Little people, Big World show revolved around that since the very beginning. This perhaps encouraged Tori in speaking out about it.  She noted, “when moms and sisters and friends and whoever start shaming each other for what they do with their kids that’s where I draw my line.”

I wanted to share something that has been on my heart lately. * I feel like I do this every now and again to reiterate why I’m here and what I hope to use my platform for. * Lately I have been getting a lot of negative comments and feedback on my social media. I don’t usually take things to heart because I know I cant please everyone but I had to bring this up. Mom shaming is a real thing and it’s not cool. I get it all the time because I put my tactics out there and I try to be as honest about my life as possible. But for some reason lately I’ve been getting a lot of people bashing my momisms or how I do things in my home. I don’t want my social media to go there. This is a place where I like to be as positive as possible. There’s a lot going on in my life right now personally and I like to use my social media to brighten other’s day but unfortunately there have been days that i feel it’s doing no good. I’m only saying this because I feel like people need to hear it. My life is far from perfect. I know that and I’m okay with that. But when moms and sisters and friends and whoever start shaming each other for what they do with their kids that’s where I draw my line. We’re all doing the best we can and that’s all we can do. I love my son and my family unbearably and I do what I think is best for them. So please-be kind to each other. There are people behind your screens and you never know what a person is walking through. * In the words of the great Rev Run “do your best-forget the rest!” * * * UPDATE I didn’t post this for people to tell me I’m a good mom-I’m the best one I know how to be. I posted as just a reminder to EVERYONE to lift one another up. Don’t knock each other down.
