I'm not sure that I understand how it is the publics fault that there are things out there about Kate and Jon. After all Kate and Jon are the ones that opened up their private family life for everyone to see. Even now, when the kids are getting old enough to hear and see things they continue to air all of their laundry (dirty laundry too) for everyone. For Kate to actually publish a book of "personal letters" that she wrote to her children, and then sell those books to make whatever money she can, tells me that her children mean very little to her. When Jon decides to "date" a woman with questionable morals and to do so knowing that his every move was being watched tells me that at that time his own happiness mattered more than his children. When Kate airs all of the details of her divorce, including the reactions of her children, to whatever magazine was willing to pay her for it, she is again putting it out there in spite of what it will do to her children. It does surprise me that Kate hasn't talked to People directly (yet) about the twins and their school problems, then again that would focus on her own parenting skills and it seems best to keep that quiet. I can also imagine that Kate would not have a problem at all with letting the kids know exactly what she thinks of their father, after all she has no problem telling it to whomever will listen or pay her.......for example People, The View and The Today Show. When Kate and Jon decide that the children need to come first, that they will put aside their differences, they will get the children whatever help they need for them to hopefully become well adjusted children then I will be one of the first to say that the public needs to back off and leave this family alone. Since it doesn't appear that is going to happen anytime soon, at least not as long as there is still money to be made off of the children's backs then I will continue to be disgusted by the way this "mother and father" are behaving and read whatever is out there about them if I feel like it at the time.
