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?

Fantastic website, hold up the good work my colleagues would like reading this. I read many blogs on a daily basis and for the most part, people need substance however, I only wanted to make a fast comment to say I’m cheerful I discovered your web publication.

Great site you have here but i seem to be having a problem subscribing to your RSS feed. Everytime i click it it comes up with error 953. It might be my own PC. I have Windows xp with AVG firewall. Im not sure if its Disabled. Let me know if anyone else has mentioned any Problems or its just me. Im not too good with PCs. I cant see my writing after submitting so im not sure if you will see this. Ill bookmark your site and check by in a couple of days for a response. Please let me know if you know of a way around it - Most of the time I don’t have much fun. The rest of the time I don’t have any fun at all. Woody Allen Born 1935

This is easier and surely gives comfort to internet users. Thanks for sharing. Post like this offers great benefit. Thank you!.. - I ran into Isosceles. He had a great idea for a new triangle! Woody Allen Born 1935

Hey, nice blog with good info. I really like coming back here often. There?s only one thing that annoys me and that is the misfunctioning of comment posting. I usually get to 500 error page, and have to do the post twice. - Content makes poor men rich; discontentment makes rich men poor. - Benjamin Franklin 1706 - 1790

You make some good points. I guess it depends on your standpoint. - I find that the further I go back, the better things were, whether they happened or not. - Mark Twain 1835 - 1910

I was studying something else about this on another blog. Interesting. Your perspective on it is novel. - If I were in this business only for the business, I wouldn’t be in this business. - Samuel Goldwyn 1882 - 1974

Kieran Isla December 20, 2010, 11:41 AM

I agree with a lot of what you’re saying here but it could do with more detail. - They stayed away in droves. - Samuel Goldwyn 1882 - 1974

Most of what you assert happens to be astonishingly appropriate and it makes me wonder the reason why I had not looked at this with this light before. This particular piece really did turn the light on for me as far as this issue goes. Nonetheless there is one particular issue I am not really too cozy with and while I try to reconcile that with the central idea of the position, let me see exactly what the rest of the readers have to say.Well done.
