Uh oh. Kate Gosselin is under fire once again, and this time it’s in regards to her alleged spanking habits. Was the mother of 8 once concerned about her children’s safety in her own care?
Kate Gosselin, 39, is constantly being slammed for her parenting tactics. The mother of 8 — twins Cara and Maddie, 13, and sextuplets Aaden, Collin, Joel, Leah, Alexis and Hannah, 10 — is now being accused of spanking her children by tell-all author, Robert Hoffman, who wrote “Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled The World.” Yikes.
Kate Gosselin: Author Claims She Feared She May Hurt Her Own Children With Spankings
Here we go again. Another day, another anti-Kate’s parenting habits report.
The author of an explosive tell-all that blasted Kate for allegedly having a doctor manipulate her fertility treatments so that she could have two sets of multiple children is now blasting the television personality for punishment tactics he claims she revealed in her own personal journals.
“The kids were outside playing and Collin poured some beans on the floor and was sent inside. He didn’t like that so he knocked down some highchairs in the kitchen and that set Kate off,” Robert Hoffman wrote in his book, “Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled The World.”
“Kate said that she was instantly so SO angry that she grabbed him and spanked him as hard as she could and thought that she may seriously injure him so she sent him to his crib and whipped him into it very hard!”
Robert claims that this was revealed in an entry inside an alleged personal journal that Kate kept in 2007, reports Radar Online. The author also claims that the mother made her son remain in his crib until her then-husband, Jon Gosselin, returned home because she was too scared she might attack him again.
Kate Has Previously Been Accused Of Using A ‘Spanker’
The same author that pout Kate on blast for allegedly abusing her children, allegedly working with a fertility doctor, and allegedy documenting these things in a journal, has also previously claimed that she often used what was called a “spanker” by the Gosselin family.
“The Spanker” was really just a nickname for a wooden spoon, Robert once told the online outlet about the punishment tool he claims was used by Kate on her children.
“She uses that Spanker on a daily basis for anything and everything. The spanking entries are endless,” Robert claimed during in an interview regarding Kate’s alleged journals.
Scary. Hopefully, none of this is true. Even though Kate does appear to be very strict with her children when she’s on-camera, no one ever wants to hear that a child has been punished physically.
