Kate Gosselin the next Mommie Dearest?

Through the magic of reality television, the world has watched Jon and Kate Gosselin's children grow up before their very eyes, and reality TV fans have questioned more than once Kate's harsh parenting techniques.

Here is an allegation comparison breakdown of Kate Gosselin and Joan Crawford's parenting techniques as told by Christina Crawford in her shocking tell-all book.

It has been alleged that the Gosselin children have given moldy and spoiled food that was left over from their uneaten meals for several days in a row. Crawford reportedly did the same to adopted daughter Christina with a piece of very rare steak.

Kate has been accused of "spanking" her children and locking them in their bedrooms.

Who can forget the scene in "Mommie Dearest" where Joan beat her daughter over a wire hanger? It has also been claimed that Kate uses harsh physical labor as a form of punishment, Crawford writes in her book that she and her brother were awakened in the middle of the night to clean up the rose bushes prunings after their mother went into a fit of rage, destroying the gardens.

The allegation comparisons are frightening, and hopefully for the sake of the Gosselin children are just that, allegations. If any of these rumors of Kate Gosselin abusing any of her children have even a remote trace of truth there is a possibility that there could be several books written and a couple of made for TV movies coming at us in the future.
