Former Little People, Big World star Jacob Roloff is fending off a hater who sent parenting decision backlash his way. The TLC alum is done with the critics and wants to shut them all down. He seems confident in his parenting choices for his one-year-old son Mateo. Scroll down to see what this is all about and see what he said to his newest critic.
Of all of the Roloff family members, Jacob is one that keeps to himself and is pretty quiet. He does post on Instagram here and there, but he seems to value his privacy.
Before welcoming his son to the world in 2021, Jacob chose not to post pictures of him on social media. This likely combats some of the potential parent-shaming he could receive while giving his son the privacy he deserves.
But in honor of Mateo’s first birthday this month, the young father gave fans a glimpse at his parenting choices. In an Instagram post, he proudly told fans that his son knows some sign language. Jacob Roloff shared a picture of himself, Isabel, and their little guy and said, “He’s signing ‘more’ and ‘dog’ (and getting close to ‘book’) and getting more and more confident walking every day.”

Jacob Roloff Fends Off Hater
On his Instagram Stories, Jacob posted a screenshot of one of the negative comments he received after sharing that Mateo knows a little bit of sign language. Surprisingly, one of his followers was confused about this parenting choice. They wrote, “So ridiculous to teach sign when they aren’t deaf. You going to give him insulin too if he doesn’t have diabetes? So stupid. Be grateful he can hear.”
Jacob Roloff then fought back and said, “This is the most entertaining sort of brain rot.”
