The Difference Between the Octomom and the Gosselins
There is none. Exploiting their children is the common thread with both of these families. Reality television should be off limits for children. Jon and Kate's children suffer the embarrassment of having parents who parade their unparent-like behavior in front of millions of people. The eight children of Nadia Suleman are too young to understand their public humiliation, but that does not make it right? There was a time when children were cherished and protected. Not since the Dionne quintuplets have we been so rigorous in our public devaluing of some of our most precious commodities. At the end of the day, children are not a product to be used, sold and exploited. Children should be allowed to be children.
