Jon Gosselin

For quite a while, Jon Gosselin has been saying he wants his kids off the small screen, pronto. And Perez Hilton reports he's taken to Twitter to proclaim his stance and explain why.Here's what Gosselin wrote:

"As you may or may not be aware, I have been working for some time to remove my children from television. I do not believe being on TV is beneficial to any of them. They are no longer toddlers that are oblivious to what is going on around them. They are now six and ten, in school and desperately in need of a normal life.

Each of them has experienced negative effects of having their lives so public. Some are struggling with emotional and/or behavioral issues. My goal for my children is for them to have a normal childhood, and gain back their much-deserved privacy. This is not about money, this is about my children. No amount of money is worth the price my children are paying. You cannot put a price on childhood. Money comes and goes, but you only have one childhood.

For those questions about money and support, I can say I am supporting my children to the best of my ability. All parties involved know the truth about this. I am and have been actively seeking employment. I have been barred from accepting entertainment deals that would generate income for my family due to contractual obligations. I am also actively looking for a job outside of the entertainment industry and so far, have not secured a position. In the meantime, I have been focusing on spending time with my children and providing a safe, stable, normal and private environment for them!

On October 13, 2010, I went to court to act in the best interest of my children -- to remove them from television. The judge respectfully denied my plea, and granted filming rights to their mother. I honor the judge's decision, but I do not support it. I will not stop fighting to remove my children from television. It is not a child's job to support themselves, or a lifestyle; they need to be kids. I would like to apologize to my friends, family and especially my children for not taking a stand earlier in my life and not questioning my decisions to have our lives documented and displayed. I will have to answer to my children for the rest of my life. I will have to live with this guilt the rest of my life. I am truly sorry!"

WHOA! It really seems like he feels bad he didn't express these reservations back when he was married to Kate and living off the proceeds!

What do you guys think? Do you think being on a reality show is detrimental to a child's upbringing -- and if so, how?

Hair Transplantation is merely removing hair from the thick locations of the sides and back again and transplanting them in to the thinning bald spots of the top and entrance. You don’t in reality get far more hairs than you’ve got correct now. You are just rearranging the hairs that you presently have. The finish outcome is a normal searching rising head of hair. - No computer has ever been designed that is ever aware of what it’s doing; but most of the time, we aren’t either.
