A memo to Kate Gosselin:  If you continue to parade your children on TV just so you can get a few more minutes of attention, don't be surprised when they clam up and look completely terrified.  Sure, you need those props to say how normal of a life they have so you can maybe land a spot on Figure Skating With The Stars next season, but they might not be as comfortable praising your parenting skills when you take them out of school and drag them down to the Today Show to do it.  But hey, at least you were really comforting to them when they were clearly freaking out.  Awkward video below.
