Kate Gosselin Slept While Her Kids Went Trick-Or-Treating. Would You Ever Do That?

Most parents with young kids turn Halloween into a family affair — but not the Gosselins. Kate opted to take a catnap while the kids went trick-or-treating.

Can you believe that Kate Gosselin slept in her minivan while her eight kids (6-year-old sextuplets Alexis, Hanna, Aaden, Collin, Leah, Joel and 10-year-old twins Cara and Madelyn) went out trick-or-treating on Halloween? This is just another example of how those kids are lacking parental guidance and missing out on a lot of fun family bonding.

Apparently Kate, 35, was so exhausted from doing whatever it is that she does, she needed to take a nap while the kids went door to door begging for candy from their Wernesville, PA, neighbors. Bodyguard Steve Neild is attached to Kate’s hip these days, so perhaps it’s no surprise that he drove Kate’s clan around in their van while she slept in the front seat! “The kids were told to be quiet so they wouldn’t wake her!” a source tells Us, adding that the kids are “sad all the time.” I don’t know any kids that can keep quiet on Halloween. I wonder if she took all their candy away from them too.

And this isn’t the first time that she squashed their fun. Remember how we told you that she pulled them out of the corn maze as soon as the cameras stopped rolling on her TLC show Kate Plus 8?

A Gosselin sextuplet reportedly got suspended from school for fighting!

Of course, they’re sad. Their mom is way more concerned with her TV career than with their care, and their dad Jon Gosselin admitted via Twitter (of course!) that he was a no show on Halloween also! “I didn’t get to see my kids this weekend,” he tweeted. It’s a shame he missed out on seeing Mady as a cute pirate, Alexis as Cleopatra, Hannah as a sailor, Aaden in his Swat team costume, Collin as a skeleton, Leah as a pretty pink bunny and Joel as a ninja!

These poor kids are being robbed of precious childhood memories all because of their selfish parents. That’s the scariest thing about Halloween. Do you agree?
