LITTLE People, Big World star Audrey Roloff has fueled fan concerns for her six-year-old daughter Ember with her latest post.
The 32-year-old revealed earlier this week that she will be homeschooling her eldest child.

And on Thursday, Audrey faced backlash after taking fans through her daily routine.
She revealed in a post on her Instagram Story that she would be running various errands.
These involved returning library books, going to a lash appointment, making sourdough, picking tomatoes, making dinner, and going for a swim at her $1.5million farmhouse.
Fans shared their fears about where Ember fit into the routine, with one asking: “What about Ember? Is she not meant to be homeschooling the poor kid?”
Another added, “She’s getting her lashes done and going swimming. That’s not work,” and a third wrote: “She is a privileged and ignorant little girl.”
One critic pointed out that the Little People, Big World star had mentioned she would be dropping Ember off at a homeschool co-op that day.
A homeschool co-op is a group of families who meet together, commonly once a week.
Another pointed out Audrey’s spelling mistake in the list, as she had written: “Homeschool cal [sic] for school year.”
They wrote: “Love how she has a typo on ‘homeschool call.’ I can’t wait for the science lesson on listeria and E. coli from unsafe food.”
Earlier this week, Audrey shared a photo of Ember on her first day of kindergarten.
Audrey and her husband Jeremy have been under scrutiny regarding their parenting methods for years.
Over the weekend, the couple was slammed again – this time for putting their young daughter in a potentially dangerous situation.
Audrey shared a new video of her husband, Jeremy Roloff, speeding down the dirt path behind their rural home on an ATV.
As dad kicked up dirt, sitting behind him was six-year-old Ember, turning around and waving at her camera-toting mom.
Jeremy hardly kept his eyes on the road, nor his hands on the wheel, as he stared at some surrounding foliage.
But Audrey tried to justify in the caption: “Lots of trips back and forth from Gigi and Papa’s to our house every day.”
Fans were less interested in their destination, and more concerned for the fact little Ember was holding on without a helmet, or any other kind of visible protection.
“Why isn’t this kid wearing a helmet?” one person begged to know in an online chat room.
Another tacked on: “That also looks like quite a slope, so Ember’s going to be tilting backward. Dad has handlebars to grip onto but Ember only has Dad’s loose t-shirt to grasp.”
