A blogging mom from ATL is in some trouble after saying to her followers that her six year old gets the “least” likes out of all her children.
This weekend, Katie Bower’s son celebrated his birthday. Katie gushed about his personality, and kind heart.
Things took a turn when she said, “Instagram never liked my munchkin and it killed me inside. His photos never got as many likes. Never got comments. From a statistical point of view, he wasn’t as popular with everyone out there.”
Omg this Instagram mommy blogger is celebrating her sons bday by writing about how out of all her kids, he “statistically” performs the worse on her Instagram. And she’s worried one day it will ruin his self esteem 👀💀 pic.twitter.com/QpFfJwDOab

Even though she tried to clean up her comments, readers let Bowers have it in the comment section. Yesterday, she archived the post.
A few comments from followers:
Full-time mommy bloggers scare me. These women use their kids’ faces to promote content and products that they will make money off of. It is the 2018 version of turning your kids into child stars and profiting off of them, and who knows what kind of long-term impact it’ll have?!

If you are an IG mommy blogger who’s afraid that how many likes on your child’s pictures is going to one day hurt his self esteem, your parenting is horrid and feel bad for your kid.
