Evil Parenting Genius?? Kate Gosselin Admits She Buys Her Kids Cellphones Just So She Can Do THIS With Them!!

This seems so mean!

But Kate Gosselin sure seems to believe in its value!

The reality mommy is planning a mini-comeback with her new miniseries Kate Plus Eight: Sextuplets Turn 10, and one clip has already been shared with the world!

In it, Kate shows off the lessons she's learned after a few years of raising eight children as a single parent, and one of her tricks of the trade is her effective form of teaching her kids right from wrong.

Even if the punishment doesn't always seem to fit the crime!

In the short clip, Kate admits that she has bought her teens iPads and cellphones, but not because she think they should have them - but rather it's something for her to take away when she feels they are not acting right.

She said:

“I got those girls cell phones and iPads so that I could take them away. Yes, indeedy. And I’ve learned I’m not the only parent of teens who has discovered that little gem.”

Wow! Not sure if we agree with that logic there. We definitely think it's OK to punish kids by taking away their iPads when they're doing something wrong, but we're not sure we would buy them those items just to teach them a lesson!

Kate must read the Bible a lot because she definitely seems to love to giveth and then taketh away!

Check out the TLC clip (above) !

    She get's a lot of crap, but she has 8 offing kids….. I'm a teacher. I know it's not easy looking after that many kids. She seems like she's done well so far.

    Yes, she comes across as harsh and stressed all the time, but so would I if I had to look after 8 kids by myself.

    Re: springawakening – i agree with you. im a teacher too and its not easy to watch 8 kids at a time. i think you cant judge until you live that life. i think shes doing a good job her kids respect her and love her. most kids of theses days dont respect there parent because they let them do whatever they want.

    I do the same. You have to have currency with your kids. Taking away their algebra book will get you no where.

    Please get rid of spammer jeremymhernandez.
    When I was that age I got grounded and if I really messed up my phone privileges were revoked. That will straighten you out in no time.

    I don't understand why people think she is being mean to her kids, I don't watch the show but it seems like she has rules and consequences for not following them, like any good parent.

    It sounds cruel but eventually kids catch on that you really don't have that much power over them. So taking away something they love becomes the way to punish. Time out and spankings eventually became something to "get it over with".

    I agree not a big deal despite her more powerful than you attidue. It reminds me of Joan Crawford in Mommy Dearest when Joan challenges her daughter in a race in the swimming pool, then taunts her saying, and i am paraphrasing "I will always win because I am bigger and stronger than you". As teachers in the below comments do they really believe it is healthy to chastise children on television so it can be replayed on the internet over and over again for the entertainment of others. How would they feel if the principal of their school reprimanded them in front of their students and then taped it on UTube!

    She has to raise eight children ON HER OWN. She is doing the best job she can. She has to lay down the law or the kids would be out of control. Maddie has always been difficult and Kate is not letting her get away with it. See if you could raise 8 kids on the cusp of becoming teenagers. It cannot be easy but she never gives up.

    Not a Kate fan. She plays martyr. She acts as if by pumping her body full of fertility drugs & giving birth to a litter of children that her family was financially unable to provide for, that she was doing something sacred. I an not a fan of fertility drugs or the multiple birth side effects. I am also, not a fan of people having children they are unequipped to provide for. I also, resent Kate for pulling these Guilt Trip Reality sound bites that somehow imply that Reality TV is supossed to provide for her family. She had an excellent run on Reality TV. It was up to her to work in her brand and strike while the iron was hot. As far as parenting? How can any child feel secure & loved when one parent is racing about taking care of 6 children, alone? Yikes. Kate frightens me.

    Re: carriialexandra – First of all that is a family not a classroom. Kate could have stopped with the twins instead she had 8 embryo's put inside of her. Her punishments seem cruel because she she seems to take so much joy out of punishing her children instead of taking that same amount of joy in loving them and being affectionate with them.

    Re: springawakening – She is not looking after them by herself, that is what she would like us to believe. She is and always has been a pathological liar, she can't even remember what lie she told last, therefore she is always contradicting herself.

    Kate has never been know for doing much right when it comes to parenting her children. I don't know anyone that would buys child an expensive electronic just to be able to take it away and do so with such pleasure. Something evil about that woman. She seems to like to inflict pain.

    Re: Good Mom – There are lots of things to take away that will get your childs attention. What kind of mom's are you people. Does anyone THINK anymore?

    Re: RainbowBrite87 – How about TV. or time with friends, or a special event that was planned. Grounding or maybe that shopping trip or the phone time with girlfriends. Get creative. Sounds like you don't know anything about what your child likes.

    I do the same thing with my only child, it works. I comment Kate for being a Mom and not a friend to her children. More parents need to put discipline first. I am a teacher as well and I 100% agree with Kate. By the way, follow me around with a camera for a week and you just might see me yell and scream and not be perfect. Give this woman a break!!!

    This is not a big deal. I think she was half joking. Next
