Jon and Kate: Red Light, Green Light

Looks like Jon and Kate are getting the private time they need. TLC network has temporarily stopped the show until August, giving the family some time to recoup. But some believe that the show should stop production completely because it is no longer Jon AND Kate Plus 8, and now has a more somber tone because of the divorce.

Okay, so, this is true, but the show can be beneficial to other families who are going through divorce. The world is not come to an end because of divorce. Eventually, the clouds part and rays of sunshine are felt once again. It does take time, and that is why I think the show should continue.

Jon and Kate are very good parents and there are a lot of adults who I think can really learn from them. Yes, they are getting a divorce, but they always keep their children’s interests at the forefront of every decision they make. Unfortunately, not all parents do that.

There are also those who think that the children are being exploited for money. That is a thought that really makes me angry. I don’t deny that it seems as though Kate has been enjoying celebrity status, but does anyone know how much it costs to raise 8 children?

So what if part of the reason why they are doing the show is for the money! They need it! A nurse and a techie would have never been able to raise 8 children with the modern conveniences that those of us from smaller families take for granted.

Shame on you for thinking low of them if that happens to be one of the reasons why they chose to film or continue filming!
