  • I'm not very familiar with the story, or why she was spanking her. But as long as she wasn't taking her frustration out on her, and was using it stricktly as a last resort disciplinary action, then, I don't have a problem with it.

  • Kids need dicapline. It's not illegal to spank your child. As long as she wasn't beating the child I don't see a problem with it.

  • it's her kid, she should be able to punish her how she wants, as long as she's not abusing her. We don't know why she was getting spanked, so how can we judge her??

  • I don't spank, but to each their own. As long as it's not bad enough to leave marks (which if she's on tv, I don't think she would be stupid enough to do with all the other crap that's going on with those two) .

  • Of course the media is going to make a big stick about it. Damn I'm glad no one ever took pics the few times I had to spank my kids.

  • I think they are all odd... to open yourself up to the public like that is just odd... I never understood it!

  • Well, they opted to open there life up to the public and have made a ton of money. Its to bad that they will probably never know a moments of privacy and peace. I feel bad for the children being on display. I dont agree with spanking and I think that Kate Gosselin has some real issues and tends to spank in anger and not to "teach a lesson".
