LITTLE People, Big World star Audrey Roloff has fueled fans’ concerns about her six-year-old daughter Ember with her latest post.
The 32-year-old announced earlier this week that she will be homeschooling her eldest child.
And on Thursday, Audrey faced backlash after walking fans through her everyday life.
In a post on her Instagram story, she revealed that she was running various errands.
This included returning library books, attending a whip appointment, making sourdough, picking tomatoes, preparing dinner and swimming in their $1.5 million farmhouse.
Fans shared their fears about where Ember would fit into the routine, with one asking: “What about Ember?” Shouldn’t she homeschool the poor child?”
Another added: “She gets her eyelashes done and goes swimming. This isn’t work,” and a third wrote: “She’s a privileged and ignorant little girl.”
One critic pointed out that the Little People, Big World star mentioned that she was dropping Ember off at a homeschool co-op that day.
A homeschool co-op is a group of families that typically meet once a week.
Another pointed out Audrey’s misspelling in the list, as she had written: “Homeschool cal [sic] for the school year.”

They wrote, “I love that she made a typo on ‘Homeschool Call.’ I can’t wait to hear the science lesson about listeria and E. coli from unsafe foods.”
Earlier this week, Audrey shared a photo of Ember on her first day of kindergarten.
Audrey and her husband Jeremy have been under scrutiny for their parenting methods for years.
Over the weekend, the couple faced criticism again – this time for putting their young daughter in a potentially dangerous situation.
Audrey shared a new video of her husband Jeremy Roloff racing an ATV down the dirt road behind their country home.
While dad was stirring up dirt, six-year-old Ember sat behind him, turned around and waved the camera at her mother.
Jeremy barely kept his eyes on the road and barely kept his hands on the steering wheel as he stared at the surrounding foliage.
But Audrey tried to justify it in the caption: “There are many trips back and forth from Gigi and Dad to our house every day.”
Fans were less interested in their destination and more concerned that little Ember was holding out without a helmet or other visible protection.
“Why isn’t this kid wearing a helmet?” One person begged to know in an online chat room.
Another added: “This looks like quite an incline too, so Ember will tip backwards. Dad has the handlebars to hold on to, but Ember only has Dad’s loose t-shirt to grab.”
