If you want to go ahead and believe a new book being written about Kate Gosselin, which pretty much eviscerates her for being a piss-poor parent (which we already knew, but apparently some random author thought it was high time to bring out those demons again and profit from them). The book is called ‘Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World’, and it’s all about what a fake bitch Kate Gosselin is—oh, and what a bad parent she is, too. What it covers extensively, however, is the fact that she used excessive spanking techniques on children as young as two years old—or, if you really want to get down to brass tacks, twenty-four months old. Saying it that way makes it sound even worse (if that’s possible), and when you hear what Kate allegedly used to “discipline” her children, you’re going to see all sorts of red.
From Radar Online:
“She was beating 2-year-old babies in diapers,” reporter Robert Hoffman, who claims he found secret journals that Kate used to help her write her books, Multiple Bles8ings and EightLittle Faces.
According to Hoffman, the former Kate Plus 8 star kept detailed notes on her computer about using a wooden spoon to hit her children, yanking them around by their hair, and punishing them for transgressions as minor as trying to climb out of a crib or not adjusting to potty training quickly enough.
“I don’t judge somebody for spanking, but what Kate wrote in her journal is just absolute violence …”
He adds that Kate’s lawyers attempted to block his forthcoming book, Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World.
Kate’s own words may indict her, claims Hoffman. One example: When three of her children helped themselves to M&Ms without permission, she allegedly wrote, “I really, really lost it! I pulled Collin up by the hair, and I spanked them so hard!”
Kate, 37, also utilizes a wooden spoon, which she calls The Spanker, claims Hoffman.
“She uses that Spanker on a daily basis for anything and everything. The spanking entries are endless,” he alleges.
Kate herself often worried about her excessive physicality, allegedly writing in the diary that she told her ex-husband, Jon Gosselin, that she “felt like I may hurt his children,” and that she preferred it when the kids were “out of her sight” whenever she flew off the handle, because then she knew “that they are safe.”
In another frightening entry, claims Hoffman, Kate wrote that she was so incensed after Collin threw a tantrum, “I sent him to his crib and whipped him into it very hard…I never felt that I may really seriously injure a child, but today was that day.”
So I seriously hope—for the sake of humanity—that these allegations turn out to be untrue. I’ll have my opinion of Kate Gosselin set to “f-ck off” no matter what the outcome is, because I think she’s a conniving, underhanded bitch who thinks nothing of stepping all over people (her own children included) in order to get another five minutes of fame, but this? Hitting toddlers with objects? Hitting toddlers, period? It’s never right, it’s always wrong, and it tells the young, impressionable child that violence is the means through which to get your point across. Great way to raise a healthy, well-adjusted child.
In any case, Kate Gosselin is still a piece of shit, and I suppose that’t not exactly news, now, is it?
