LITTLE Couple star Dr. Jen Arnold responded to her son Will’s controversial TikTok post on social media.
The selfie video from Dr. Jen, 49, showed how she takes responsibility for her child’s actions.
In the video, which the TV star shared on her Instagram account on Friday, she spoke about the explicit song that 13-year-old Will used in his social media post.
“You may have seen that Will recently posted a dance trend on TikTok that unfortunately had very explicit and foul language in relation to the song he chose,” Dr. Jen.
She then spoke at length with parents about the difficulties of teaching children social media etiquette.
The TLC personality went into more detail about how she handled the specific situation with Will in the caption of her post.
“Will posted an adorable dance with an unfortunately inappropriate song in the background,” wrote Dr. Jen.
“We talked to him and agreed to make better decisions because his social media is seen more and that means he has a greater responsibility if he wants to use it.”
“I hope you all will give Will some grace since, like so many kids out there, he is new to social media and still learning. #momlife #socialmedia #littlepair #safeposting #learning #trends #parenting #kidsofinstgram #momsofinstagram #parents.”
Fans in her comments section were receptive to Dr. Jen’s apology and appreciated her interactions with Will.

“Social media is hard! It’s important to use it as a growth opportunity,” said one fan.
Another added: “What a wonderful response and truly taking responsibility. You’re both great parents.”
A third fan signed: “You are amazing and absolutely right!!! I thought it was great that you said you would rather be there and do it with him than just say no!”
“He’s learning to get along with you and I’m sure he’ll make more mistakes, but it’s always a learning opportunity!!”
A fourth fan admitted: “Parenting is hard. Will seems like a good kid and I know you and Bill are great parents.”
“Our children will make errors in judgment. You laid it out perfectly.”
Will went to his Instagram profile on Wednesday to share a video of him participating in the aforementioned TikTok trend.
In the clip, the teenager waddled onto the screen with four of the penguins from Madagascar.
Will then began repeating the cartoon characters’ dance moves while the song “Half on a Sack” by Three 6 Mafia played in the background.
But the language in the song angered fans as they rushed to the comments section to condemn the little couple for allowing their teenager to take part in the trend.
“Really disappointing! He was so cute when he was younger,” one wrote.
“I seriously doubt this is his fault. I don’t think that’s true,” claimed a second.
“Don’t think Mom and Dad would approve of this song!” Who monitors their social media!” a third warned.
“Wow I’m shocked your parents would allow you to listen to this trash,” trolled a fourth.
“Cool dance, Will! But I’m sure your parents will be disappointed with the song choice,” remarked a fifth.
“Really bad song choice,” remarked one closer.
