Kate defends Children
“I find it very heartbreaking that my children’s father chooses a public forum to discuss his current opinions of the ‘development’ of our children,” noting that those opinions are “value judgments” based on “limited” visits with the former couple’s eight young kids. (She and Jon share twins Cara and Mady, 13, and 9-year-old sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah, and Joel.)
Kate felt compelled to defend her kids against his claims. (Jon told Winfrey the kids “have problems with their peers, and they have problems with talking to other people,and they have problems with wants and needs and manners and morals and what’s right and what’s wrong.”)
“Because he has spoken negatively about our children, I feel I owe it to them to respond on their behalf,” Kate explained. “Each and every one of our children has met and continues to exceed all physical, mental, and emotional developmental milestones throughout their lives. Their normal development is regularly monitored by myself, their pediatrician, and school staff, as is usual within any family.”
