I can't blame them for taking free trip and getting free stuff. I would too. Anyone wanna give me some free stuff? Pay for a trip to Hawaii? Huh, anyone?

The second thing is potty training episode. Sitting a child on a toiler for 2 HOURS is wrong. I'm sorry it is. And in the dark. No thank you. Not all children PT the same. I'm a nanny and potty trained quite a few times and every child is different. To do that to a child is upsetting to me. He doesn't have to go. One child sat for almost an hour and the other for 2. Ugh I have to turn it off whenever it comes on.
And just b/c you have 8 children does not mean you deserve extra attention. How many women in America have many children with no help? Quite a few. My mom had 7 and had no help. Just b/c you had that many doesn't entitle you to anything IMO. Plus I think its wierd they only tried what a year? I think (might be wrong) to have children before turning to fertility drugs. WTH? And with all the endorsements and help she does get I don't see why they get that much attention. Plus they took a weekend to NY and then a vacation alone to Hawaii? How many SAHM moms do you know who get to do that?
Sorry for the vent...she just irks me!
I just read in my US Weekly that Jon and Kate renewed their wedding vows in Maui on Aug. 12th.
I wonder if TLC foot the bill for that also?

I just read entire thread, I didnt realize some people didn't like this show for those reasons mentioned. Aw that sux, I love this show and the parents. Really though, like ErinB mentioned- you have to take everything with a grain of salt. It's a reality show and that's what they do- focus on the negatives to make the ratings go up and they see that Kate has a strong personality so of course they are going to make her the "bitch". To me I watch it b/c it's a fun cute show, it makes me laugh. Kate and Jon do really good things with their kids so the kids have memories. I think that in itself over powers kate's bitchiness. They could sit in all day with the kids b/c taking them out is just too much, but they don't b/c they are good parents. If they dont pay for it, oh well! Shoot, if someone is offering to take me and my family to Disney World, go right ahead! The kids are SO well behaved and they didnt learn that themselves. The potty thing, I must have missed that episode, I dont recall them having to sit for 2 hours. If thats true though, I also don't agree either but everyone has their own way of parenting. Some parents beat their kids b/c they pee in their pants, so it could be worse. I agree that many women (and men) have 8+ kids, (i have tons of relatives like this too) but TV approached them to do the show and it turned huge. I say good for them, luck hits people in diff ways and they got lucky imo. Lucky b/c they are able to do all these things with their family, whether its with help or not. I personally would never be on reality show, I'm just too weirded out about being on camera or film, but if anyone in my fam was approached by a tv show that was willing to pay for stuff, Id tell them to go for it!

I think I may have said this before (can't remember and am too lazy to search back through this thread), but I'm so much like Kate in regards to her "attitude." I'm pretty much a self-professed b!tch and I will apologize to Brian afterwards, but it is super stressful to raise a child and be with them allllllll day long. I can barely handle Aiden. I think I would curl up in a corner and cry if I had 8 kids all within the same age range. I also was a teacher and did ABA therapy with children for the past 6 years. The children I worked with are Autistic and highly behavioral so I thought dealing with Aiden would be a breeze. While my experience did help, there's a big difference between an 8 hour day and a 24/7 commitment.
People snap, people get mad, people fight, people aren't calm and collected all the time. Raising a child is the hardest thing I've ever done in my entire life. If they filmed my life and put it on tv, I can only imagine how I'd come off.... I know it wouldn't be pretty. Of course they are going to focus on showing the "tougher" side of raising the kids and show all the "bad" moments.
I can say I wouldn't turn down a free trip if I was offered one, or two, or three! I'm all about free stuff. Plus it's not like the places that give the free stuff don't benefit. They aren't just doing it out of the goodness of their heart. They get publicity for it too!
