Kate Gosselin Loses It With Kids

| Filed under: The Gosselins


Kate Gosselin is beginning to crack!!!

Either that or she really does love being in the tabloids.

Photogs captured Kate losing her temper with one of the sextuplets, Leah, on Saturday morning. As Kate was on the phone, Leah was blowing a whistle. After Kate asked her to stop, Leah blew on the whistle again and Kate became enraged.

She rose from her seat, came over, and spanked the little girl! In front of the cameras!

A witness tellsInTouch, "The girl was screaming and crying. Kate just pushed her away and walked off with her coffee. Her older sisters were trying to make Leah feel better.”

Oy, not a good move, Kate. Doesn't help your image at all, since your trying to avoid being labeled an abusive parent.

Of course, in light of this news, the experts had to be called in to see if this was a serious offense on Kate's part. Though there is no laws against spanking and the parental community is divided on the practice.

In a public statement, Kate stands firm behind the feeling that how she disciplines her children in public or private is her decision.

We do think Kate should have thought about those damn cameras before reacting the way she did.

What do U think about Kate's reaction?

    Her child, her business how she disciplines period

  2. 2

    damn. kids need their ass busted sometimes lol

  3. 3

    Who cares, spanking is NOT abuse!

  4. 4

    You know.. If her daughter was not listening to her mother then well.. She deserved a spanking. "Spare the rod, Spoil the child" Who cares if the cameras were there? You handle a situation like that RIGHT THEN. I feel so bad for this family.

  5. 5

    She is crazy. I feel for those children. Spanking for a whistle… That's extreme IMHO. I never spank my kids but can understand that under some circumstances you may. But gush, I am speechless…

  6. 6

    i was spanked as a child, it's not that big of a deal

  7. 7

    This was probably blown entirely out of proportion. What parent hasn't disciplined their children with a little spanking? A "spanking" - not a BEAT DOWN. This may not help her image, but it also doesn't make her a bad or unworthy parent.

  8. 8

    My parents spanked me and I turned out fine.

  9. 9

    She clearly regrets having so many kids

  10. MAC27 says – reply to this


    More kids need spankings these days!!!

  11. 11

    Such a blown out of proportion, way to increase magazine sales/ratings, NON story this is! I can't wait to see how many parents and non parents start up the never ending spanking debate! The media is acting as if she punched the little girl in her face! She SPANKED her open handed on her bottom for misbehaving….end of story! It happens EVERYWHERE, EVERYDAY to LOTS of kids who have great parents.

  12. 12

    As a mother…I have the right to spank my kids if they need it!! Kids be trippin nowadays!!!

  13. 13

    All children need to be disciplined. I spank my little girl when she gets out of line and that is how you keep them controlled. I don't abuse I correct. Some may think there are better ways to do that so then please by all means do what works for you but Kate has every right to spank her children.

  14. 14

    Honestly, I feel bad for her. It looks like she gave her one swat. Everyone gets caught in bad parenting moments, and too bad for Kate that everything happens to get caught on camera (her choice, admittedly). I think people are blowing it WAY out of proportion.

  15. 15

    Case of fame destroying people. This story keeps getting sadder…. Kate needs to make being a GOOD mother first priority. Poor kids.

  16. 16

    Oh please, my parents spanked me and I turned out just fine. Its not abuse, and it totally worked to make me behave.

  17. 17

    I think more parents need to spank their kids. 'Timeout's' don't work all the time. Good for her for standing behind her dicipline methods.

  18. 18

    oh please, i would never spank my son, but she is in the so-called "privacy" of her own home! she's supposed to think about every move she makes because the paparazzi are stalking her? that's bullshit! whether or not she spanks her children is her decision, it's not illegal, it may not be right to some people, but give me a break, stop judging this woman's every move!

  19. 19

    She is an awful mother! She is hardly ever home - she even said it in one of the episodes - one of the kids called her the babysitters' name!

  20. 20

    This is why people shouldn't raise their kids infront of the cameras, because when you act like a normal parent some dipshit screeches abuse and makes trouble.

    She told her child to stop. The child did not. She spanked her once and walked away.

    What fucking idiot thinks this is abuse when there are people locking their kids in basements?

    This is a clear case of stupidity.

  21. 21

    When Kids get out of line they get Disciplined. It's not abuse she didn't beat the the child.. and I'm sure Leah isn't scarred for life. If anything she learned to not make noise while her mother is on the phone. Leave Kate Alone!!!

  22. 22

    We have a little boy (almost 2 years old) and we've personally decided that we're totally 100% against hitting as we were both spanked as children. I do think though, that if a parent or family decides that is the way they're going to dicipline their children, then that is their personal business.

    It doesn't look like she beat Leah and that it was more of a spank which is what a lot of parents think is alright… to each their own I suppose???

  23. 23

    I am so OVER Jon & Kate

  24. 24

    She could have just taken the whistle away…..!?

  25. LSD says – reply to this



  26. 26

    i think that it was nothing. i'm glad that my parents disciplined me as a child, or i would have turned out like miley cyrus and her dad.

  27. 27

    I think it's time she took a long break. That's just wrong. You make all that money and are still so unhappy that you lose control and strike your baby.

  28. 28

    ooooh spanking. Now she's done it.
    In 20 years disciplining your child with words will be questioned!

    I was spanked as a child and I turned out just fine - straight, smart and with plenty more common sense, less insecurity and reality in my brain than Perez Hilton. Maybe he should have been spanked more… by his parents at least. Or maybe he liked it…

  29. 29

    Parents lose it some times as some children can be very trying. Corporal punishment should be the last resort, once every other discipline tactic has been exhausted. There are strong opponents against corporal punishment, but sometimes it works. Of course never where it escalates to child abuse where there is marks, bruises, or where an object other than the palm of the hand is used.

  30. 30

    What parent does not smack their child in the butt? What child does not grab their butt and cry when it happens? Do not like these 2 idiots, but come on, this is about the most normal thing I have seen her do.

  31. 31

    Sometimes a kid needs their ass swatted.

  32. 32

    Either you spank to get attention from the little buttheads or to correct. Here she did it out of anger, not a good move.

  33. 33

    Someone should spank that skag for that stupid hair

  34. 34

    I dont care for the bitch, but because you dont like them u think spanking is Abuse? im sure leah wont blow the goddamn whistle again, will she?

  35. 35

    I'll fucking smack the bitch

  36. 36


  37. xlove says – reply to this


    Personally I think they're her kids and she can do whatever the hell she wants with them.

    I'm not saying that hitting a child is a good thing considering I strongly dislike and now do not respect my parents at all for choosing to hit me in order to discipline me. But, I guess if she thinks that her child will turn out ok then that's her fault if they're as screwed up as I am in the end :)

  38. 38

    Despite the fact that she's on tv, she's still a parent and a human being. Besides, we have no idea what had been going on before that. As far as I'm concerned spanking is normal and useful. Maybe Leah had been misbehaving, and was warned it would happen if she continued. When I was spanked as a child, I cried. The parents aren't supposed to comfort you when that happens.

  39. 39

    Spanking is not abuse. Kate acted exactly the way she should. All of those kids listen to their parents. They know that they need to obey the rules, otherwise they'll be punished. Leah didn't listen and she got what she deserved. The way Kate disciplines her children is no one's business but her own.

  40. 40

    it's funny how she is so determined to feed her kids organic food because "it's a gift we can give to them" and yet does she not care about the gift of patience or compassion. does she really need to slap her 5 year old and then push her away…what gift is that? I see nothing *good* about this woman whatsoever and yeah I have watched her show in the past.

  41. 41

    completely over the top and she need a good spanking herself, bitch.

  42. 42

    Way to go back to cavemen era, bitch.

  43. 43

    Also, spanking should not be used all the time, only on certain occasions when children completely cross the line, definitely not over spilled milk. Spanking wont work if it is used all the time as discipline. It should only occur, if needed, two or three times through out the childhood if at all.

  44. 44

    my mom beat my ass when i got out of line.. it taught me not to act out of line.. thats what's wrong with parents today and why kids are soooo bad… they dont discipline them. instill some good old fashion fear in those kids… good job!! TEAM KATE!!!!

  45. 45

    there is nothing wrong w/ spanking your children. everyone does it…so why do people have to make a big deal when she does it? i know i got my ass whipped a few times when i was a child.

  46. 46

    ppl need to leave her alone. Its her child and if she wants to spank them its her business. She shouldnt have to change how she raises her kids just because the paparazzi stalk her

  47. 47

    U know when she finally does this in front of the camera she is ready to burst. she is really careful to look like the mom of the year when cameras are rolling. imagine what she does to her kids when the film crew is out of her house. OUCH!

  48. 48

    I agree, sometimes a good ol' fashion butt whoopin' is in order….

  49. 49

    In Sweden it has been forbidden to spank children for over 30 years. And as a swede i really think she overreacted. Why not just take the whistle from the child instead of abusing it? People who spank their children do it only because they don't dare hurting anyone their own size! Otherwise why would spanking usually stop when the kids get bigger? It i were Leah I would get a bat and smack Kate over the head, the mom needs to be disciplined!

  50. 50

    its called fucking discipline and kids need more of it… i watch these parents let their kids walk all over them all the time out in public and i think its bullshit

  51. 51

    Blowing a whistle while mom's on the phone deserves a swat!

  52. 52

    I was spanked as a child, and I turned out perfectly fine. I don't see it as child abuse unless you go way overboard. One or two taps is fine.

  53. 53

    Re: tucxie – I hope you are not one of those parents that say in a high pitched falsely condescending voice, "No, Honey we don't do that" I can't stand that! I know that people cannot go through child-rearing with THAT tactic.

  54. 54

    Good for her - parents don't spank nowadays and children act poorly in public places. She just probably should have done it in private, not in the open in front of cameras.

  55. 55

    thats is not a big deal.
    my mom spanked me, probably more often than Kate spanks her and I think i turned out pretty good. haha
    she needs to discipline her kids. its just sad that the tabloids are making her look like an abusive parent.

  56. *Jem* says – reply to this


    I know most of the older people here will probably say "spanking" is ok,"spare the rod, spoiled the child" and there is some truth in that. BUT didnt Gosslins use the "time out" method for discipline? And the time out method works just as well as spanking, when my cousins are put on time out they act like someone beat them.

    Id have to say kate;s reaction is more in line with "cracking" and less in line with disicpline

  57. 57

    spanking her own children isnt anyone else's business

  58. 58

    Spanking is not child abuse. If a child refuses to listen to their parents when other disciplinary actions are taken, what else can they do but spank? It's their business how they handle disciplining their children. I'm sure 99% of parents out there would be criticized by the public if their lives were constantly monitored. Let's worry about the parents who neglect their children not the ones who pay (too much) attention to them.

  59. 59

    LISTEN UP! there's a reason God made kids so darn cute! You would throw them across the room otherwise! Until you're a parent, do not judge. You will have those days when you want to crack! She's no different from the rest of us parents. Give her a break……you try taking care of all those kids! I would be insane!

  60. 60

    She has every right to spank her kids….ANYWHERE she sees fit.

  61. 61

    This is getting stupid. Spanking is not abuse it is an effective method of disipline as long as it isnt blown out of proportion. My parents spanked me and i think i turned out pretty darn good. Her children are and will be well behaved when they get older… and thats what the world needs.

  62. 62

    Oh shut the fuck up perry…why don't you stop hounding her and stressing her out? Unreal…yea the show is a stupid idea, they needed money to raise their kids, now they have it, they need to pack it in. On the other hand, people like YOU need to step the fuck off her!!!

  63. 63

    it is her child and she is allowed to discipline how she chooses. she just happens to be in the limelight now and everyone knows when she does so. i am however one of the millions of people that have stopped watching the show because of all this over-killing coverage!!!!!!

  64. 64

    You're a drama queen Perez. The little girl needs to mind. Who hasn't had their butts lit up by their parents?

  65. 65

    Sometimes talking to kids doesn't work. Spanking them - a hit on the bottom to get there attention NOT a punch in the face OR a hit so hard it knocks them off their feet is appropriate. Those who don't ever spank their children seem to breed the most obnoxious, abusive and out of control kids. You cannot always reason with children using words. It's to get their attention.

  66. 66

    see we all support kate decision she has 8 damn kids, give the lady a break.

  67. 67

    Big deal! They are her kids. They don't listen they need a spanking!

  68. 68

    Wow… A kid doesn't listen and someone *GASP* disciplines them!

  69. 69

    This is ridiculous! If all mothers were photographed all day long, there would be MANY pictures of kids getting spankings! It's funny that all this media attention started because of JON! He cheated on Kate, according to the media. BUT, now Kate is being attacked?? Hmmmm……blaming Kate for John's infidelity? Sounds to me like the media has uses some outdated gender norms!

  70. 70

    It bugs me when people say, "My parents hit me when I was a child, so I do not spank" I think those people where more than likely beaten or worse. Light sporadical spanking does not traumatize and ruin children! Stop with the sissyness! This is why there is so many people in Jail because no one ever taught them about consequences! "No, honey we don't do that" followed by some time-out will not work in every situation. Having said that, I'm sure that child of hers will never blow the whistle when her mother is on the phone, and will probably not remember the incident by next week.

  71. 71

    She should be able to discipling. There is a huge difference between proper disciple and abuse.. There is a HUGE difference between spanking and beating.. The word "hitting" is too gray.

    No child should be subjected to abuse, but I highly doubt the Gosselin kids are being treated improperly.

  72. 72

    Spanking's not abuse. Kids should obey their parents. Though I don't know if blowing a whistle *once* constitutes a spanking….maybe if she kept doing it over and over again? The point is we will never know what actually happened in this situation because these magazines tend to sensationalize things. They know that there are people who love to hate Kate Gosselin and will eat up anything remotely negative about her.

  73. 73

    Re: Amyrosie – you are an idiot..she's a whore because she's been married to the same man 10 years, and has children by ONE man? DUHH…here's YOUR sign…

  74. 74

    I believe in spanking…spanking, not abuse. I said when my girls were babies they’d never be spanked, and then they turned four. For example, my daughter yanked her hand out of mine in the parking lot of our grocery store and ran behind a vehicle backing up because she wanted to be the first person to get our car. Thank God the driver heard me scream. I pulled her past that car and spanked her butt right there for the world to see. My spanking hurt a lot less then that car hitting her. By the way, she is now almost 12 and that girl is extraordinarily cautious in parking lots now. Lesson learned.

  75. 75

    its called DISCIPLINE my mo use to hit me all the time when i was younger. maybe the little brat needed it?

  76. 76

    Oh my gosh. This is where I draw the line. There is absolutely nothing wrong with spanking your child, in public or other wise. If she wasn;t listening to Kate, she deserved a spanking. Good for Kate for sticking to her disciplinary beliefs and not "apologizing".

  77. 77

    Maybe had she spanked that ass along time ago, she would understand that Mommy only says STOP and NO one time.

  78. 78

    I HATE hypocrites like Kate. She has a fit when the kids solve their conflicts by hitting, but kids learn what they live! I never spanked, it teaches that hitting os okay and my kids are now wonderful parents who don't hit their kids.
    I'd like to see Kate pick on someone her own size. God only knows what she's doing to them in private. She's losing it. What a bitch.

  79. 79

    seriously perez this was unnessesary. People have really got to stay out of this famillies business. Its really sad. Kate can spank her child if she wants its her choice and in my opinion leah deserved it. If you parents tell you to stop doing something and you just go ahead and do it again calls for discipline. Man if people think a spanking is bad i am not looking forward to the next generation of children to come along who have not been disciplined. I feel bad for the teachers of the future.

  80. 80

    She used her FIST! Disgusting AND abuse!

  81. 81

    Sometimes kids deserve a good spanking. My mom would look for the thickest belt or her shoe when I didn't behave or listen after she told me no a couple times. I didn't grow up screwed up and made me have the respect adults should have. The kids now do not get that kind of discipline and are disrespectful because their parents were too scared their kids would call the cops called on them. If I run into disrespectful kids & the parents let them get away with it I know those kids will let get away with murder. Reasonable Spanking = Good Parenting!

  82. 82

    wow… BIG DEAL… a mother spanking her disobedient child… now they are just finding anything to say about her in the tabloids. what will the next headline be, "Kate Gosselin eats a cheeseburger!" ?!?!?

  83. 83

    Re: olympia – Actually, that works pretty well if a child is of average or above intelligence, which thankfully, mine were.

  84. 84

    because a parent has never spanked their child before? Shes just a parent and is getting too much grief for it! She has 8 kids and a cheating no good husband.. I think we could all cut her some slack. If you look around your own neighborhoods youd see a huge amount of parents treating their children badly. Kate is a good mother and because of all the public scrutiny shes getting a bad name and for what.. headlines? Shut the fuck up about Jona nd Kate already and let them live their life making their own decisions… theyre grown and fully capable!

  85. 85

    Porkez, your parents should'd spanked a little bit more.
    Maybe you were a good person now.

  86. 86

    lets just wait for her to do something really stupid, this story is a fucking joke and a waste of everyones time

  87. 87

    Kate needs to get out of the spotlight with her kids. She did nothing wrong.

  88. 88

    who cares…my parents spanked me…big damn deal.

  89. 89

    Kate's a bitch. Ever watch the show? She's ALWAYS pissed off about something. Maybe her daughter's just trying to get her mom's attention, instead of her mom ignoring her for the damn phone.

  90. 90

    Whip the kids ass if she doesn't mind. Just because most people whip their kids in private doesn't mean it's NOT done. Get over it. It does NOT mean she regrets having so many kids. I have one kid and I want to whip his ass all the time because he is a handful.

  91. 91

    i was spanked for a lot less than that as a kid so whatever!!
    it's not effing illegal to spank your kid!!

  92. 92

    First "spanking" is a garbage word..call it what it is hitting. Hitting is the best form of communication for those who can not effectively get their message across through intelligent means. I was never hit as a child. I do not hit my children. I am complimented everywhere I go about how well they behave, they are all honor students and they are definitely not perfect. They have their stuff, they misbehave, they have consequences. Hitting is a way for a parent to take out frustration, nothing else. If it were effective you children would never repeat the offense again, if you hit and they repeat the behavior then what? Where does it stop, do you just hit harder or terrify them. I got in typical trouble as a kid, but standing right next to me were the kids who were hit. The difference was, when it came down to it I felt I could call my parents, while the others were scared to death knowing they would be HIT! If hitting is okay simply because they are a child and you are "teaching" them to be good adults then I should be able to smack everyone I who is inferior to me when I find their behavior offense. Lower IQ, and you irritate me WHAP; less physically fit than me, SMACK….after all…I am just trying to teach you to be the best you can be.

  93. 93


  94. 94

    Um, here's an idea, Kate. TAKE AWAY THE WHISTLE.

  95. 95

    Eeh, kids need a spank sometimes. Now, for blowing a whistle? Maybe not…but she should be able to discipline her kids. Spanking is not abuse.

  96. 96

    Re: MAC27 – AMEN! That's why this world is FUCKED, kids run it! And we let them!

  97. 97

    So she was spanked? Add her to the list of millions of other kids who are also spanked.

    Maybe the kid was acting like a brat, eh?

  98. 98


  99. 99

    This is such bullshit. Why don't these idiots go spend money to catch ACTUAL child abusers/neglectors/molesters. This woman has 8 kids for God's sake!!!!! Most people can't even handle ONE!!! Most people can't handle a dog! There is nothing that I hate more than people judging someone for something that they know nothing about. Don't EVER say that you would never spank your kids until you are in that situation. Especially her situation. No discipline=Lindsey Lohan. So, would you rather inflict slight pain upon your children at a young age, or let them walk all over you and ruin their own lives at an older age. Would the people in the world stop being so damn STUPID! You are driving me INSANE!!!!!!!!

  100. 100

    The kid deserved a spanking. I would of spanked her too. It's NOT child abuse as long as you don't beat the child to a pulp. One or two swift slaps on a clothed behind will get the childs attention. It always got mine when I was a child, and I never made the same mistake twice.
