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.
