Years ago, through my many blogs about the Toxic behavior I and everyone else in the world, who saw the show Kate Plus 8, witnessed on television, I predicted that Kate Gosselin’s children would be needing therapy and some would even need special treatment. Now it has come to pass. //drlillianglassbodylanguageblog.wordpress.com/tag/colin-gosselin/
Apparently, one of Kate’s sextuplets, Colin Gosselin has been sent away from the family to a boarding facility for treatment of his “special needs.”.While this is a good thing in that the boy is finally getting treatment for what ails him, it is a bad thing in that Kate didn’t take care of this boy’s obvious needs sooner. He is now 12 years old and many believe that the help she finally allowed him to have was “too little too late.”
Perhaps mother Kate was in denial or perhaps she was too busy abusing the child verbally and physically as was not only reported in a book documenting her abuse towards the children, but was seen by all in photos and videos of the show.
Colin was an unusual child and we could see it from the beginning. In fact here is a quote on one of my observations of Colin’s from one of my earlier blogs about his disturbing behavior.
“In particular, I found the behavior of little Colin Gosselin disturbing as he appeared to be the one who consistently bullied the other children. He was often involved in some type of interaction which resulted one of the other children ending up in tears. He often seemed to be 0ff of his own and appeared to be disconnected from the others, in my view. Also, he rarely smiled. He also seemed to be rewarded for his bad behavior by Kate .”
I also blogged about Kate’s children Colin and Alexis being thrown out of school for bad behavior and being homeschooled. Here is what I said.
There is no doubt that they emulated Kate’s ugly behavior to Jon. They grew up learning disrespect from their mother and they in turn followed suit and disrespected others. They constantly saw their father being abused and belittled by their mother, that they now allegedly abused and belittled others.Instead of getting these children psychological help they apparently need, Kate decided to home school them.
Apparently things got so out of hand regarding Colin Gosselin, that the boy had to be sent away to a facility to help children with special needs and has been in a “pre-adolescent unit” for over a month now. The fact that Kate didn’t get him the help he needed until now is disturbing. Kate told People Magazine that Colin had been struggling for a long time and that it is it’s one she’s dealt with on her own. She said she felt very alone in this. She also said, it’s not something that has only impacted me or him – our entire family has been impacted.”
Had Kate listened to some of her critics instead of being defensive and hostile towards them when they were trying to point out some red flags to her, perhaps neither she nor Colin would be in the situation she is in now.
What Kate needed to know then and needs to know now, it is her abusive behavior and rigid behavior towards this family that has impacted them greatly. Her parental alienation towards John has even leaked on to another one of her angry and hostile children, Mady Gosselin.
Mady was the one who was always seen being angry, crying, and saying and doing mean things on the show. This girl needed immediate help as well. In fact I wrote a blog about this as well. Mady was the one who always seemed to be acting out and pushing Kate’s buttons..https://drlillianglassbodylanguageblog.wordpress.com/tag/mady-gosselin/
When Kate brought Mady on the Today show a few years back with her much quieter sister Cara, Mady was asked if she thought of her younger siblings look up to her at all. Mady replied “No. They better not. I mean, I’m an awful role model ugh.” The fact that she openly admitted she was mean to the younger children is cause for concern.
But then again, Kate has been mean to the children since the beginning. We all saw this for years on her show. So Mady is simply following Kate’s lead in the mean department. Kate was also so mean to the children’s father, Jon Gosselin and has badmouthed him every which way. She took verbal shots and legal shots at him every chance she could and shared this on every talk show she appeared. No doubt, she trashed Jon at home as well.
Now “mean girl” ( “mean” by her own words) Mady is 16 and is picking up where Kate left off when it comes to bashing Jon. Jon obviously loved his kids and showed them a lot of love and affection on the show while they were growing up. So it is understandable why he now feels frustrated that he doesn’t get to see all of his kids regularly. In fact, Jon told ET at the beginning of August that sadly he isn’t on speaking terms with Cara and Mady – and doesn’t see either of the girls often. Mady sets the record straight in a People Magazine interview. She said the following:
“He makes it seem like we’re being kept from him, which is insane. “He should maybe spend some time thinking about why we don’t want to see him, and maybe realize that if he ever does want a relationship with us, talking about us on TV is not the way to make that happen. He doesn’t even know us,” Mady adds. “How can he dare to talk about us?”
Jon obviously doesn’t know them because he doesn’t see them often. But it is not his will. He doesn’t have the funds to go to court and wage a legal fight to see them so he has to accept this. Kate certainly is not encouraging the children to see their father as she continue to publicly bash him.
Then Mady rudely and selfishly states that this is going to be a busy year for her at 16 as she is getting her license and studying for the PSAT tests and doesn’t need to be around a “Toxic” person.
This statement by Mady clearly shows how Kate has no doubt poisoned the well with Mady, when it comes to Jon. It is sad. It appears to me that Mady and the rest of her children will be needing a lifetime of therapy based on how abusively Kate treated them and Jon.
A child only learns what they have been taught and in Mady’s case we have seen that she has been taught anger and disrespect and that unfortunately this will be the legacy Kate Gosselin left for her. There is no doubt that the other kids may be equally as damaged by Kate’s anger.
Perhaps Colin had a biochemical problem, that was out of Kate’s control. But she didn’t help matters by not getting him the help he needed sooner In fact, she may have caused Colin even more damage by constantly showing him hostility as we see in the photo above where she shoves her hand over his mouth and scowls and yells at him for not behaving.
