Mom DELETES 14-Year-Old Influencer Daughter’s Social Media Account With 1.7 MILLION Followers Because ‘It’s Not Healthy’ To Judge Yourself On ‘Online Feedback’
- Fernanda Rocha Kanner has deleted her daughter’s Instagram and TikTok accounts
- Daughter Valentina, known as Nina Rios, had 1.7 million followers
- Her mother described deleting the accounts as ‘radical, yes’ but ‘necessary’ too
The mother of a 14-year-old influencer in Brazil has taken a drastic step and deleted her daughter’s social media accounts after she described TikTok and Instagram as “unhealthy.”
Mother Fernanda Rocha Kanner said she didn’t want her daughter Valentina to judge herself on “online feedback.”
Valentina, known online as Nina Rios, had amassed 1.7 million followers through her TikTok and Instagram accounts.
Fernanda said the role of a mother was “not to be your buddy”, but admitted Valentina probably wouldn’t realize that until afterwards.
“I don’t think it’s healthy, even for an adult, especially a teenager, to base her self-discovery on online feedback,” she said.

Fernanda told Fantastico: ‘It’s hard enough figuring out who you are when you’re 14 years old.
“If there are two million you’ve never seen in your life who think 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 saw 30 identical selfies and little dances that anyone can do.”
She said of her decision: “Radically, yes. Also needed.’

Fernanda added that she didn’t want Valentina to “grow up believing that she is this character.”
“I don’t want her to promote 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 whom this counts as fame.”
Fernanda explained that she received praise from other mothers for her actions, while other teens described her as “possessive.”
Nina told Fantastico about her mother’s decision to delete her account: “I was obviously not very happy. I got pretty angry.’
She’s not sure now when — and if — she’ll return to social media.
She said to Fantastico, ‘I will choose. Right now I don’t want that. It’s going to be something that just gets in my way and it’s only going to make it worse.’
