Kate Gosselin Shows Off Her Whack Parenting Skills

Kate Gosselin Shows Off Her Whack Parenting Skills-photo

As Kate Gosselin proves, the hand that rocks the cradle, also slaps the behind.

The Insider and In Touch have captured the Jon & Kate Plus 8 matriarch and Mother of the Year contender doing what she does best: Doling out stern-handed discipline to her brood—in this case, daughter Leah.

No word on what Leah did to earn the swatting; maybe she had the nerve to ask for a sip of water.

Yowza; if this is what Kate does when the cameras are around, there's no telling what she does behind closed doors.

Have your say in the comments section: Where do you stand on the spanking issue?

    While I personally don't believe in spanking, most people that are pro spanking will justify it by saying you should NEVER spank in anger and you should talk to the child before and after to make them understand why they are being punished. Kate was clearly spanking out of anger, and every study out there shows that leads to violent, ill-behaved children. No it doesn't , you goof! I had my rear end spanked for not listening many times, and I wasn't ill-behaved, nor am i violent!

    i agree that spanking your child is ok when it's for a VALID reason. when you spank your child because she blew a whistle after you told her to stop you shouldnt spank her you just take the whistle from her

    Oh please. I was spanked as I was growing up, and I am a perfectly well adjusted adult who is intelligent and motivated. I don't hate my parents or have mental issues due to being spanked because I can count on one hand how many times I was spanked. My parents only spanked me when I absolutely deserved it, and while I did not enjoy it, I see now that it was probably a last resort in those cases. I think Kate and her family are under tons of media scrutiny right now, and anything she seems to do is wrong. We are all human, and make mistakes. Of course she is going to be tensed and stressed with everything that is going on in her life. Give the poor woman a break! I don't particularly care for her, but I do feel a bit sorry for her.

    PS - I was spanked as a child and I am a highly successful, happy, and productive member of society. I was only spanked when the other things did not work and one or two swats on the butt did not lower my self esteem, nor did it cause me to become an abusive adult. I love and respect my parents very much to this day and I had a fantastic childhood with no unhappy memories.

    Would you please. I have known many a drug addicted, spoiled, self-centered, rotten adults that I look at on a daily basis and think - "Obviously your mother never spanked you." And as a matter of fact, Childrens Services will tell you that an open hand smack to the buttocks is more than okay. And for those reports that someone could have called Childrens Services? Sure, call them -they'll always do a visit every time... That's their job. But what will they say at the end? They will quote PA law - Parents can use reasonable supervision and control when raising their children.23 Sec. 6302.[Ci.] Parent/guardian/person responsible for general care and supervision/ person acting at request of the above may use force for the purpose of safeguarding or promoting welfare of minor including the prevention or punishment of his misconduct, if the force is not designed to cause or known to create a substantial risk of causing death, serious bodily injury, disfigurement, extreme pain, mental distress, or gross degradation. 18 Sec. 509.[Cr.] Because the child was crying does not mean that she was under mental distress. Kids cry when they go into time out, too, you know! They cry because they don't like being disciplined in ANY fashion.

    Any parent who would hit their child in full view of cameras and reporters makes me wonder how they treat their child away from the cameras!

    I am 27 and I was never spanked when I was a child, I am not a crackhead or a horrible person. Children can be raised with love. My son is 2 and he is so sweet, he says please and thank you. He makes sure others have what they want before he gets his own things. He knows how to share and all that, and hey guess what he has never been spanked or hit or anything. He has timeouts and we talk to him. All spanking does is teach kids "I'm bigger so I can hit you, so when you're bigger you can hit others". I think kids are so precious and if more people thought of them as miricles instead of burdons there would be less hate and mean people in the world. Good for you...you are raising your child right. My son was raised in the same manner and he is a polite,caring eighteen year old college student majoring in education. We are constantly asked how we raised such a fine young man.

    ok, first off..parenting is a tough job and ANY MOTHER will tell you that sometimes you can tell a kid over and over to behave and the kid will not stop being a little SH*T so the bottom needs to be smacked. TOO MANY kids today are whiny, bratty and disrespectful to their elders..I got a spanking when I was a kid and I learned (the hard way) to behave and stay out of trouble. maybe if some of the TRAINWRECK TEENS and YOUNG ADULTS TODAY HAD been spanked MAYBE they wouldn't be STRUNG OUT OR SLUTTING around or ACTING LIKE COMPLETE IDIOTS! SO MANY KIDS TODAY ARE LACKING DISCIPLINE, RESPECT, OR A LACK OF DECENCY! And about the "water bottle" incident...maybe that kid had been bugging for sh*it all day..kids don't hear the word NO enough because they have SO MUCH these days what with internet, cable, video games, etc.........I am so glad that my parents were strict with me that I grew up respectful and appreciative. I am a mom to a 2 year old boy. He never gets spanked and he is the most polite, compassionate little person. He says please and thank you. He is happy and cares about others. He gets time outs and talkings too. All spanking does is teach younger people that when they get older it's ok to hit. What does that solve. People need to try to raise kids with love.

    Ahhh, what's the prob? My mom spanked me, worse than this child is receiving. Just another story to make this women out to be a monster and excuse her cheating husband. Love the society we live in. If only I had a penis!

    Children should not be hit. Kate Gosselin needs counseling for her obvious short temper. If she did that to her daughter in view of photographers, what does she resort to when things don't go her way behind closed doors? I am a mother and have never had to hit. Time outs or my "I don't like what you are doing Mom look" always did the trick . For those of you who consider spanking OK, I am betting you were hit as a child when you misbehaved. My husband was "spanked" when he was little and at 50 years old it still haunts him today. SPANKING = ABUSE!

    Beat her ass. From what I've seen on the show, all those kids need their ass beat. It's not like she's trying to kill her, she was probably actin up, she she needed her ass beat. Please, I got much worse as a child, and I'm glad I did. Like moflo said, maybe if more parents had done what mine had, there wouldn't be so many damn crackheads in the world today.

    For heaven sake, I'm no fan of lady dragon over here, but a spank on the bum is not abuse... Motherhood is a hard job, I got triplets... 30 percent of the time, is a freaking nightmare

    she probably beats jon too. that's why he must leave her for a nicer, more normal women. i heard on the discovery channel that for every baby you pop out, the more unstable and crazy you become. that is why my wife will use a surrogate mother to birth our babies. and she won't have stretchmarks or have to be sewed up after. bonus.

    For all of you whackjobs who think this isn't abuse and won't affect the child... just wait another 15 years when Leah is 18 years old and working the pole at the local strip joint.

    But I'll be honest, I'm not going to complain about that scenario. God knows I'll be at the club, front and center, throwing dollar bill paper-airplanes on the stage.

    There is nothing wrong with discipling a child. That is not abuse. There is a difference.
