As Bachelor Nation knows, Bachelor star Michelle Money is going through a difficult time. Her 15-year-old daughter Brielle was in a terrible skateboarding accident. As TV Shows Ace last reported, Brielle is in stable condition. Michelle plans on continuing to update her social media followers as things progress.
At this point, Michelle hasn’t given all of the details of Brielle’s accident. She did mention that Brielle was found when her neighbors went on a walk and called 911. She also urged parents to, “ALWAYS MAKE THEM WEAR THE HELMET. ALWAYS. EVEN WHEN THEY PUSH BACK.”
Michelle Money gives advice to be a “parent first, friend second”
Michelle seems to be very passionate about kids wearing helmets after her daughter’s accident. And, it sounds like that would have prevented some of the injuries that Brielle has. In a new video, she says she should have physically put the helmet on her daughter. She said that her daughter talked her out of putting the helmet on.
In the IGTV video, Michelle talks about being a parent before being a friend. Due to her divorce, she wanted to make things easier on Brielle. So, she chose to be her daughter’s friend. She said, “We can’t afford to be friends first with our children in this world.” She adds, “If I could go back and change that, I would.”

I’m feeling mad and disappointed in myself today. I know it’s not helpful in this situation but it’s where I’m at. Raising Brielle as a single mom with 50/50 custody has made it difficult to ever want to argue with her. I only get her half of the week. I’ve made being her friend more important than being her mom. I regret a lot of things today. I hope this can be a strong reminder to make it your job to parent first. They will love you eventually. Keep them safe first. In all aspects. Put the helmet on.
In her 5-and-a-half minute video, Michelle Money talks about how she’s feeling. She talks about how she should’ve monitored her daughter better on social media. She says, “Make it your job for your kids to hate you. Be that good of a parent.”
In her caption, she writes, “I’m feeling mad and disappointed in myself today. I know it’s not helpful in this situation but it’s where I’m at.

Brielle was in terrible skateboarding accident and is in the ICU on life support. She suffered a serious brain trauma and a fractured skull. She is in a medically induced coma to relieve pressure in her brain. She is in amazing hands up at Primary Children’s Hospital. Please- I am asking for prayers. I believe in the power of communication with whatever God you believe in. The energy of your conscious focus to send healing to my daughter is real. In whatever form you commune with your Higher Power, please as a desperate mother, I am begging you to do so. She needs support and healing right now. And if you could send one up for me as well, I would appreciate it. This is the worst experience of my life. ALWAYS MAKE THEM WEAR THE HELMET. ALWAYS. EVEN WHEN THEY PUSH BACK. Thank you to the neighbors who happened to be on a walk and found her and called 911. You will never understand. I would not have found her in time. My heart is forever grateful. Thank you to all of you who have sent prayers and messages and love. Brielle has been through so much already this year. She has proven how strong she is. I know she will pull through. #PrayForBrie
Some of her followers added that they’re also having a hard time with being their child’s parent rather than their friend. They appreciate hearing Michelle’s message and some said that it really helped them.
