Kevin Kreider, Kate’s younger brother, and Kreider’s wife, Jodi Kreider, told CBS Early Morning that “They’re [the kids]being exploited. It’s time for America to see the situation for what it really is, which is — unfortunately, there no laws protecting children in reality TV shows. And it’s time for the public to be aware of this. And that these — these children are very aware of the cameras in their homes. Their home is their workplace. And this is not a healthy environment for kids to be raised in.”
