The Imperfect Parent

I read The imperfect parent. I like it not because I always agree with them, but because it gives me food for thought. I can agree to disagree.

I have several great girl friends who have great kids. I don't always agree with their choices and they don't always agree with mine. We can agree to disagree. Agree to respect each others choice. Agree to make our kids follow each others rules depending on the house or the situation we are in. That's what makes us great friends. Our ability to think for ourselves. That being said I'd like to place my usual disclaimer on this and say...I am not starting World War III. I don't care if you agree or disagree with is your right to do either and I respect that. I'm even willing to listen and consider your opinion as long as you don't judge mine. Cool?

So here it is - yes, fine, judge me for watching Jon and Kate Plus 8..whatever - The imperfect parent's post on Unsolicited advice for Jon and Kate. The seven things that Marge lists, in my opinion, are so, so will Jon and Kate read this...probably not, but for anyone else going through the same thing - READ THESE ITEMS!


  1. I admit, I watch it too and hate what has become of the family. I hope I never have to go through that, but it is great advice. With kids & divorce, you have to think of the kids well being and what is best for them.

  2. I completely agree as well. I watch the show, and am so sad to see that things have fallen apart, not surprised, just sad. I wonder where these 10 million viewers were though when it was just about potty training and pancakes, before the divorce sensation hit the show.

  3. I have watched the show from the beginning and I feel this has been coming for a long time. The "wedding" in Hawaii less than a year ago was so staged that I knew they were just play acting. I really hope that with the "hiatus" TLC has put them on will give them time to re evaluate the priorities in their lives and help them realize that the cameras don't have to be there all the time. I hope they are "there for the kids" like they say!
