Excerpts from Kate Gosselin’s new book have leaked — and some say the reality mom’s personal letters to her children are exploitative and humiliating!  Read the details and decide for yourself: Is Kate being cruel or kind?

Kate Gosselin‘s third book, I Just Want You to Know: Letters to My Kids on Love, Faith and Family, is filled with highly personal letters, written by  the reality mom to each of her eight children.

Individually, Kate details how she feels about each of her children, and how they’ve been hurt by her split from the kids’ father, Jon Gosselin. And Life & Style has the excerpts from the tell-all!

In the new tome, she apologizes to son Aaden, 5, for taking away his dad. “I do not posses the skills to father you,” she writes. “But I will do everything I can to show you the way.”

To Alexis, 5, she owns up to the fact that her torturous split from husband Jon has been “confusing and upsetting to you.”

It seems more to me like she’s using it as a guilt confessional. She beats up herself in her letter to Hannah, 5 — “much of what I said to Jon is unwarranted, I could have watched what I said better, I could have guarded my tongue better.”

To son Collin, 5, Kate promises, “I will never leave you. I know that all the recent events in our family structure have greatly upset you … when I leave for work I will always come back.”

It does seem personal … but also very loving and affection. I’m torn on this one! Is Kate just a loving mother … or an insensitive money grubber willing to humiliate her kids for cash? You tell me! Vote!
