Anyone with small children knows that children can be gross--spit up, throw up, snot, pee, and of course poo, come with the territory. You clean it up and move on, it's no big deal.
But Jon and Kate freely allowed all these moments to be filmed up close by TLC's camera crew and broadcast to millions. When Alexis is a teenager, it will be embarrassing enough to have Mom tell people about the time she pooped herself. But unfortunately this incident is preserved on film to embarrass her forever. Why is it funny and cute to show a child's BM, but not an adult's? Would Kate want us staring at her BMs? Children's private moments deserve the same respect as an adult's. For those who say she was just a toddler, at what age is the cutoff for a child to be bestowed a right to her privacy? Three, four? Fourteen?
And think about this. A child who is brought up without any boundaries is a child who could grow up to have a great deal of difficulty respecting or even comprehending other people's boundaries in adulthood.
This is but one example of the Gosselin children's private bodily functions being displayed in all their glory and documented permanently. By the way, the slow motion when Kate shows Alexis to the camera was inserted by TLC editors, not us.
