What do you think: Is spanking ever okay?
According to In Touch, Leah had been asked to stop blowing a whistle and was not listening. "The girl was screaming and crying. Kate just pushed her away and walked off with her coffee," a witness told In Touch. "Her older sisters were trying to make Leah feel better."
But Kate is defending herself.
"Whether the paparazzi are there or not, I am a mother first," Gosselin told Life & Style Weekly. "I love my children and when they misbehave, I discipline them as I deem appropriate for the situation."
