Negative criticism immediately flew to the comments section of the post and fans expressed their disgust. One wrote, "When she is in therapy or the plastic surgeon’s office at 13 for not feeling good enough about her looks in this ridiculously shallow insta-world, Mama might be regretting some of the choices she made for her. As the mother of an 18 year old and 15 year old me, I know!”

Another commented, "First grade kid who behaves like a teen and has the attitude of a spoilt teenage brat. Not gonna play out so well once she’s older and you realize she’s outta control. Not going to tell you how to parent your child but it’s sad to see how much of their childhood their missing because they’re busy trying to act older and are being encouraged to do it. Sad."

The Bachelor in Paradise alum responded to the hate on her Instagram stories and said, "Confession: When I posted the poll about getting Kins hair (HARDLY) highlighted, I knew it would trigger the trolls. But I did it anyway… so in a way I was trolling the trolls!"

"Of course I got some messages saying she’s too young etc...but I got a lot more saying ‘I’m so glad you let her and didn’t care what anyone negative had to say.'  So, moral of the story is not everyone is going to agree with everything you do & that’s okay! We all are entitled to our own decisions and opinions and thoughts on parenting etc and not everyone is going to agree with you and that’s OKAY," she continued.
