An eagle-eyed reader wrote to Zondervan to find out the status of Kate Gosselin's upcoming book Love Is In The Mix and this is what she was told. Love Is In The Mix was to be a cookbook penned solely by Kate and was due to be released in October 2009. I am sorry to see it not work out since I encourage her finding satisfying work that doesn't involve the children also having to work.
Even if the children wanted to work and their dad supported them in doing so (two big not happening "ifs",) history tells us they're getting past the ages when children are as cute and marketable as younger kids. Now that Kate has become accustomed to living an extravagent lifestyle, the question is, what can she do to support herself and the children in the manner to whcih they have become accustomed? This is a critical point financially because, according to Paul Petersen who's witnessed it countless times with former child stars, this is when parents start dipping into their children's savings rather than downsizing or changing their lifestyles to something less affordable. Then when the kiddies turn 18 and try to collect on their incomes they discover to their dismay that little or nothing is left.
Hopefully Kate's utilized her skills for saving money to make plans for the time when the work ends so that the kid's incomes, which they have earned, will be theirs and theirs alone for them to use as they wish when they are older.
