Kate Gosselin, 40, has come under fire for her controversial parenting choices — and a new report claims the Kate Plus 8 star admitted to her harsh discipline style in her alleged “secret” diary entries, which will be published in Robert Hoffman’s book, Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World.
"Mady was grouchy and received a few spankings with the spanker that newly joined the emergency supply stash in the big blue bus!!!! She eventually happied [sic] up!" she reportedly wrote, per an excerpt obtained by Radar Online, explaining the "spanker" is a wooden spoon she used to punish her children.

She also allegedly recalled thinking she and her ex-husband, Jon Gosselin, were “the worst parents ever.”
“I will set out tomorrow to be a better mommy," one entry purportedly read, adding her oldest daughters eventually offered their help.

Aside from spanking, Kate allegedly revealed she took things to another level with her son, Collin.
According to the report, he once knocked over a few high chairs and she "grabbed him and spanked him as hard as I could and thought I may seriously injure him so I sent him to his crib…. And whipped him into it very hard!"
The reality star has yet to comment on the troubling allegations.
