The mom, who is certainly willing to work hard for her money -- what with her various industries that range from sex toys to pasta sauces -- spoke out about bestowing so much cash on the 6-year-old:

Loosing [sic] your teeth should be special, I like to add passion and something special to everything including loosing [sigh, sic] teeth. 

So $600 for one tooth is a great addition to her college fund and let’s [SIC] her have a big surprise when she woke up that morning.

Huh. We get that she was going for a big reaction, but we still don't know if cash is king when it comes to 6-year-olds. Maybe a doll or stuffed toy that cost a fraction of that would've had as big an impact and seemed more appropriate.

Also, was the first thing on Sophia's mind really, "Wow, I can't wait to stash this in my college fund!" When most kids receive birthday money and are told it's going "straight into a savings account," that statement is typically met with a chorus of groans and sighs. Unless Sophia is the next Alex P. Keaton, it's hard to imagine she shot out of bed and ran to fill out a deposit slip.

It sounds like Farrah's intentions were good here, but definitely a bit misguided.

It's also a shame that she feels she has to defend her parenting choices, but when you post a photo on Twitter showing your young child and a big wad of Benjamins you can probably expect to get called out for it.
