One Year After the Split: How the Gosselin Kids Are Coping
It has been one year since the marriage of Kate and Jon Gosselin began to crumble in plain view – and Kate acknowledges there have been difficult moments for their brood of eight.

"[Nine-year-old daughter Cara] was upset with me because I forgot to sign them up for something at school," Kate, 35, tells PEOPLE in a new cover story. "I said, 'Cara, I had a really rough year. This is a new year. You've got to give me that. Let's start over.' So I've really worked to keep my word with them."

In general, Kate says, her children – twins Cara and Mady and sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Leah, Aaden, Collin and Joel – have weathered the storm well: "They're just amazing, resilient, loving kids."

The reality TV mom and her kids will return to TLC in a new special, Kate Plus 8, airing June 6. The family recently filmed the special in Orlando, Fla., where they also celebrated the sextuplets' sixth birthday.
