I've witnessed both good and bad parenting by both of them which makes them pretty much like the rest of us because I've yet to meet a perfect parent. I feel really uncomfortable seeing children's behaviour dissected on a discussion board but agree that Pete's choices have made that possible. Not all of his fans want the children to continue appearing in the reality show or even for the show to continue. I very much hope that he gives it up sooner rather than later and concentrates on his other work.
I do agree - but I think in general that the issue is far more about the fact that anyone is in a position to know so much about their behaviour, rather than the behaviour itself.
It's interesting that you say that many of his fans don't actually want the children to continue in the show - from previous discussions about the kids, I've very much got the impression that some people are actually tuning in specifically to see them.
What would his fans want him to replace the segments with the children with?
