Kate Gosselin may not be mother of the year, but is she really a cruel parent? If you idolized her for raising eight children, you may not think she is such a great mother any longer as the former star of Jon & Kate Plus 8 and Dancing With The Stars has just had her cruel (and secret) disciplining methods exposed, including beating a 2-year-old with a spoon! Say what?
That’s right, Kate Gosselin may not be the perfect mother, like she wants us to think she is. In fact, new reports suggest the complete opposite. According to Radar Online and Star Magazine, a reporter, Robert Hoffman found some secret journals written by Kate Gosselin that even border child abuse. Hoffman told Star magazine about what he read in Kate’s journals: “She was beating 2-year-old babies in diapers. I don’t judge somebody for spanking, but what Kate wrote in her journal is just absolute violence.” Apparently, the mom of eight would beat the children on a regular basis with a wooden spoon, as Hoffman added: “She uses that ‘Spanker’ on a daily basis for anything and everything. The spanking entries are endless.”
And many more disturbing entries followed, such as one time when the kids took some candy without asking, Kate wrote: “I really, really lost it! I pulled Collin up by the hair, and I spanked them so hard!” While the spoon beatings were kept a secret, there was one person who also knew they were happening – Jon Gosselin. A family friend spoke to Radar Online, and revealed: “Jon knew that Kate was using that wooden spoon with the kids and hated it.” Okay, but while Jon may have hated it, we are left wondering why he did not intervene.
Since the news broke, Kate Gosselin has been bombarded with Twitter haters, and even child abuse groups are in an uproar. One of those groups went on to tell the site: “We certainly know that there are better, healthier and more effective means for disciplining children than the one being suggested.”
Wow, what do you think of these shocking revelations? We know you have an opinion, and we want to hear it! Comment below and share your thoughts with us!
