More trouble for Kate Gosselin.
In the same week that her decision to let her eight children be filmed for a reality show has been brought back into the spotlight, the single mom is now catching heat after one her sons was seen crawling under the family’s van as she sat in the driver’s seat.
Radar Online reports that Gosselin, 36, was picking her children up from the bus stop in Pennsylvania on Thursday (November 3), waiting behind the wheel as the kids got off the bus and climbed into the van.
But instead of getting into the vehicle, one of her sons crawled under it to get some of his papers that had blown away. In photographs of the incident, he can be seen lying on his stomach underneath the body of the car with his head under the front right wheel.
Is it Kate’s fault?
According to Janette Fennell, president of KidsandCars.org, the answer is yes!
“She should have gotten out of the car to supervise them, especially when you have that many children,” Fennell tells Radar, explaining that motor vehicles are the biggest cause of death amongst adolescents, and adding that Kate and her crew are “blessed” that she didn’t step on the gas.
“You should never leave children unattended in or around motor vehicles,” says Fennell. “Even if they are all capable of getting themselves into the van and getting buckled up, children at that age are unpredictable.”View Slideshow »»
