Is a Camera Crew Better at Parenting Than Kate Gosselin? (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Aug 5th 2010 1:35AM
Is a Camera Crew Better at Parenting Than Kate Gosselin?Is it a bad sign when kids seem more excited about hanging out with a camera crew ... than with their own mother? That's the question on 'Kate Plus 8' (Wed., 9PM ET on TLC). For the first time in six months, the show's production crew is back, and the Gosselin kids seem really happy to seem them. So happy ... that it raises a few questions. Like, is Kate Gosselin paying enough attention to her own children?

The little Gosselins seem fantastically excited to have the film crew back; because the film crew actually spends a lot of time hanging out with them. Meanwhile, Kate has received criticism for spending time away from her family -- including a stint on 'Dancing With the Stars' that separated her from the kids. Ms. Gosselin has also been investigated by the state of Pennsylvania concerning possible child labor law violations -- which relate to having her children on TV all of the time.

Do you think Kate is being a good mom? Do you approve? Is she just doing the best that she can?

I think Kate loves the camera crew too. She flaunts herself around them like she's the queen of the world. I love Little People, Big World but hate that TLC shows the previews of Kate during the commercials. I don't like her, hence I don't watch. She is an attention seeking, tanned, toothy grinned gold digger. I know she had to have breast enhancements. I wonder how much that cost. And, @70,000.00 for hair extensions she no longer has. I guarantee you the children would rather live in a normal house with a normal mother instead of the lavishness she pours on herself. Hah! She has to make a living for the children!! Get her off the show!

These children should be taken away from her. There are various types of child abuse.

Many people project their own attitudes on people like Kate. You accuse her of feeling or thinking what you would be feeling or thinking if in her situation. Kate is a fighter. She is trying to make sure her children survive. She spends more time with them than she would if she were working as a nurse. Neither she or Nadia intended to have so many children when they started out. Neither had reduction because they couldn't "killing" one of their children. Just because you don't agree with the outcome doesn't make them wrong. Their beliefs are their beliefs. You'd know this if you'd listened to them actual talk.

Who feeds and clothes the kids, if Kate quits appearing on TV? Think about what you're saying people. When I was young, I loved my parents but I was always happy to see "company." Just because they like to see other people doesn't mean they hate mommy OR that she is a bad parent. Do any of you people HAVE children?

I surely do have children. I didn't have to appear on TV to raise mine. I was a teacher and lived on what I made. Those of you who think jealousy of Kate is an issue here are living in la-la land. Open your eyes and see the light.

Is Kate not a good Mother? How dare you assume that. Only a loving mother would let a camera crew into her house and disrupt her children's life.

Sheesh, this woman whines constantly. She has no clue what it is like to really be a single parent because she doesn't live in the real world. Kate better thank her lucky stars she has this pathetic TV show in this down economy....besides, who told her to have 8 kids? That was her and her idiotic husband's choice!

I have a suggestion for all of you Kate haters. You have yourselves 8 children and then criticize her. I was one of 12 and believe me, I know what bad mothering is and Kate is not that. It is an overwhelming and constant job that never ends.

Hey Betty!! Did your mom have her own TV show? Did she live in a mansion with 26 acres and tons of people to raise your family? Did your mom leave her 12 kids home to go to a dancing contest? You are comparing apples and oranges and obviously are in love with this woman. You really need to get a clue and a life for that matter.
