That's been part of their brand from way back. TLC has tips from Kate on their site, they've done tons of press lately answering the question, "What advice would you give to Nadya Suleman?", they've had many questions on the FAQ episodes where people want to know tips and advice. They are touted as parenting and organizational experts for their speaking engagements. There's a long history of this.
But, I totally agree with you....they are my "don't" as far as parenting goes.
|How do you make ends meet, especially in these economic times?
We're doing the same things we have always done: Clipping coupons; watching for sales; stocking up when things are on sale and planning meals (and other purchases) according to sale flyers.
Again, why wouldn't you say something like, "You know, we're still doing some of the things we've always done...xyz....but, we've been really blessed to come from a place of making ends meet to a place of abundance where we, fortunately, don't have to worry as much. We still choose to be frugal, but I want to be clear that we are doing just fine--and that's been in large part to the generosity and support of our fans, family, church, etc."
