Tori Roloff From ‘Little People, Big World’ Just Told Everyone to Stop Criticizing Her Parenting

We’ve been watching Little People, Big World for years — and it seems fans are still fascinated with the Roloff family. From the beginning, we’ve watched Amy and Matt Roloff navigate life as a married couple who both have dwarfism. They never let their condition stop them from following their dreams, however, as they also own a successful business running a farm and have a number of children who are also doing great things. And a fan favorite from the show is Zach Roloff, Amy and Matt’s son who has dwarfism even though his twin brother does not.

Zach and his wife, Tori, are a loving couple with a son of their own. But their followers haven’t always been kind to Tori when it comes to her parenting skills. Here’s why she just had to shut down the haters on her Instagram.

Zach and Tori’s son, Jackson, has dwarfism, too

Zach and Tori have been married for years, and they quickly became a fan favorite when they first entered the show as a couple. While Tori is of average height, they knew their child would have a higher than average chance of being born with a form of dwarfism due to Zach’s condition. And though this concerned Tori at first, she knew she’d love her son no matter what — especially since Zach’s small stature never impacted her love for him, either. “We knew our chances of having a dwarf, but it didn’t matter,” she told People. “We just knew we wanted to be parents, however God wanted it to happen.”

In regards to parenting a little person, Zach told People after his son was born in 2017, “You have to encourage a dwarf child a little more because it will take them five steps to do what others can do in two.” He also added, “But I knew, dwarf or not, that I was going to parent my child with the mentality that not everyone gets a trophy. You have to earn it.”

Tori has posted her honest thoughts about parenting in the past

Thanks to Tori’s active social media, fans of the couple get to keep up with what they’re up to with baby Jackson on a near daily basis. And Tori has never been shy about sharing the parenting process with her followers, either. To People, she noted how the sleepless night were deeply affecting Zach, but she was doing her best to get used to them. And on Instagram, she’s posted plenty of adorable photos of her son while describing the difficulties of being a new mom, too.

In one memorable Instagram post, Tori recounted a particularly difficult day helping a very sick Zach while trying to take care of Jackson at the same time. “I then come back inside to relax but heard Jackson awake in his crib. He often wakes up and just hangs quietly. I needed the extra time so I left him a couple minutes,” she wrote — but she could never be prepared for what happened next. After noticing “something” on Jackson’s face, she ran up to him in his crib and realized what it was. “I noticed brown spread all over his sheets and crib- and oh ya- that’s poop… IN HIS HAIR!!!! To make matters worse… we don’t currently have hot water in our house so I had to drive to another house to bathe him.”

Many fans found the story funny, and others had relatable personal anecdotes to share as well. But, unsurprisingly, a few of her followers weren’t too impressed with the story and took it upon themselves to shame the new mom for the story and accompanying photograph.

She just shut everyone down with this Instagram post

Tori may be willing to share her candid thoughts about parenting with the world, but she’s not willing to be openly hated on — and she’s recently made that clear on Instagram. “Lately I have been getting a lot of negative comments and feedback on my social media,” she wrote in a post. “Mom shaming is a real thing and it’s not cool.” She continued the post by stating that she tries to be as honest about parenting as possible even if it leads to backlash, but she wants her followers to remain 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,” she continued.

Though she says her life is “far from perfect,” she added she’s drawing the line with other mothers shaming her for the way she chooses to parent baby Jackson. “I love my son and my family unbearably and I do what I think is best for them” she added. And at the end of the post, she reminded everyone she’s the best mom she can possibly be — and that will never change.
