Eric Roberts: "Kate Gosselin is a Child Abuser"

Apparently The Young and the Restless’s Eric Roberts isn’t a big fan of Kate Gosselin’s parenting. On November 1, Roberts tweeted “I know she's fading from the news, but hopefully someone's still got their eye on the wellbeing of her kids. Kate Gosselin is a child abuser.” In an interview with Small Town Gosselins, Roberts was asked about his tweet, to which he responded.

Small Town Gosselins: Your tweet about Kate Gosselin was quite passionate. What exactly precipitated it?

Eric: Simple, really. Thank goodness there is footage of Gosselin hitting her kids, and apparently feeling fine about it. I say thank goodness, because behind closed doors makes it that much tougher to stop. All I ask is that any caring parent or non-parent take a few minutes to read material from Alice Miller's FOR YOUR OWN GOOD, or visit this site, or listen to the audio book THE NATURAL CHILD, or review materials from Prevent Child Abuse America and then decide.

Kate has CLEARLY exploited her kids for fame and fortune.........

But clearly America not only condones her behavior but many people actually ENJOY watching this dreadful show!!

I don't get it.........

All three of y'all are all correct. I think that Kate shouldn't put her kids in front of the camera for fame, but I don't agree with Eric telling people how to raise their kids either. I think that kids getting a beating now and then don't hurt them because if you let your kids get out of control, you are going to do more harm than good, that is just my opinion. I would never cuss or hit my parents, I would be in the hospital, LOL. We got to get back like in the old days when kids love but fear their parents. Nowadays, kids can cuss, hit and call CPS on the parents and not be in trouble.

I agree, Rocknroll. Eric needs to clean up his own backyard before he starts pointing out the flaws in others....

What does Eric Robert's tweet teach us....... Put down the bong before you tweet. Who is this glorified Z lister to tell anyone how to parent.

You and me both. If I even fixed my face to talk sideways, Mama would be right there to slap me on the right path.

"Act right before you get slapped right." She didn't even have to say the words, all she had to do was look at you and you knew.

That being said...people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones, and I beleive that this will come back on both Gosselin and Roberts.
