Victoria Beckham wants to protect her daughter, Harper, from social media trolls until the 10-year-old finishes puberty.

“Harper isn’t on social media, so we don’t have to worry about [body-shaming] just yet,” Victoria, who has four kids with husband David Beckham, told Vogue Australia in an interview published Sunday. “But seeing how cruel people can be, yes, it really does [concern me].”

The fashion designer, 48, shared that she believes making sure Harper surrounds herself with good people and builds a strong self-esteem will help thwart haters.

“She’s at that age where her body is going to start changing, but it’s about making sure that we communicate a lot as a family and she surrounds herself with nice friends,” she said, adding, “But it is quite terrifying, I can’t lie.”

Victoria also explained that her only daughter is in no hurry to grow up and enjoys dressing her age.

“She’s not one of these kids who are going out with a full face of makeup and a crop top,” the former Spice Girl said. “She actually said to me recently, ‘Mummy, I’ve seen some pictures of you when you were in the Spice Girls, and your skirts were just unacceptable. They were just too short.’ Then David piped up and said, ‘Absolutely, Harper! They really, really were.’ And she was actually quite disgusted at how short my skirts were.

“I said, ‘Are you never going to wear skirts like that?’ She said, ‘Absolutely not.’ We’ll see.”

Victoria and the former soccer star, 47, also share three sons, Brooklyn, 23, Romeo, 19, and Cruz, 17, all of whom are on Instagram.

Victoria and David married in 1999 and celebrated their 23rd anniversary on the Fourth of July.
