Jon Gosselin is opening up about how growing up on reality TV has had a negative effect on his eight kids.
The former Jon and Kate Plus Eight star is appearing on an upcoming “Where Are They Now?” Episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter on her network OWN.
“I saw my kids not growing up normally, like I grew up, and having community,” he confessed. “Yes, they got to travel the world, and yes, they got these fabulous things, and yes, they have trust funds, and they’re taken care of educationally. Great,” he continued.
“But developmentally, they have problems with their peers, and they have problems with talking to other people, and they have problems with wants and needs and manners and morals and what’s right and what’s wrong. I think more so than someone who grows up off TV.”
Jon also opens up about co-parenting his twins and sextuplets and where his relationship stands with his ex-wife Kate.
