Mother DELETES 14-year-old influencer daughter's social media account with 1.7 MILLION followers

The mother of a 14-year-old influencer in Brazil has taken a drastic step and deleted her daughter's social media accounts after describing TikTok and Instagram as 'unhealthy'. 

Mother Fernanda Rocha Kanner said she did not want her daughter Valentina judging herself on 'online feedback'.  

Valentina, known online as Nina Rios, had amassed 1.7 million followers over her TikTok and Instagram accounts. 

Fernanda said the role of a mother was 'not to be your buddy' but admitted Valentina would probably only realise that in hindsight.   

'I don't think it's healthy even for an adult and much less for a teenager to base her self-discovery on online feedback', she said.

Fernanda told Fantastico: 'It's hard enough for you to find out who you are at 14 years old,

'When there are two million you've never seen in your life thinking they know you, it's even more dangerous. It's easier to lose yourself.'

Fernanda said she knew it was time to delete her daughter's accounts 'when I logged in, I'd see 30 identical selfies and little dances that anyone can do.'   

She said of her decision: 'Radical, yes. Necessary, too.'

Fernanda added she did not want Valentina 'to grow up believing she's this character'. 

'I don't want her advertising flammable polyester clothing made in China. I don't want my brilliant daughter doing her daily dances like a trained baboon.

'It's a sad generation for which this counts as fame.'   

Fernanda explained that she received praise from other mothers for her actions, while other teenagers described her as 'possessive'.

Nina told Fantastico of her mum's decision to delete her account: 'I obviously wasn't very happy. I got quite angry.'

She is now unsure when - or if - she will return to social media. 

She told Fantastico: 'I'll choose. At the moment, I don't want to. It's going to be something that's only going to get in my way and it will only make it worse.'
