‘The View’ Co-Hosts Gets Into Heated Discussion Over Parenting Children

Chaos erupted on the set of “The View” when the co-hosts got into a heated debate about a study that claimed it is never acceptable for a parent to yell at their children.

The panel members began by discussing the findings published in the Journal of Child Abuse & Neglect that said hollering at children is no different than physically abusing them.

“I’m sorry, you have to yell at your kids from time to time. Sometimes they just don’t get it. So you have to get a little bit louder,” Goldberg, a mother of one, explained. “That’s not to say you say, ‘You dumb ugly punk.’ That’s not what we’re doing. We’re saying, ‘If you take one more step in this house…'”

But co-host Joy Behar disagreed. “You can say the nicest thing and yell, and you can say the meanest thing and whisper. So it’s not the volume that counts. It’s what you’re saying,” she said.

Co-host Sunny Hostin also agreed that hollering isn’t necessary.

“We tend to model the behavior we experience as children. My parents never hit me, and they never yelled at me. My husband’s mother was a yeller, and he’s a yeller,” she explained. “I’ve had to teach him not to do that because I also think it’s very damaging.”

But Goldberg defended her stance, saying, “[No]. You’re teaching the child, ‘Don’t touch the oven because I said so!”‘


Co-host Sara Haines chimed in, saying sometimes she yells “when there’s danger involved, but sometimes I’m yelling about menial things, and I feel so guilty.”

That led Goldberg to declare: “Don’t feel guilty!”

At that point, executive producer Brian Teta interjected, telling Goldberg to go to commercial so the situation would deescalate.

“Do it now! Go to commercial!” he yelled, which took Goldberg by surprise.

“I’m sorry, did you say something?” she responded.

Teta then lowered his voice and replied, “Please go to commercial.”

Goldberg is no stranger to causing a stir on the set. Last month, she caught co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin by surprise. As the five-member panel discussed an issue, Goldberg blurted out to Griffin: “Are you pregnant?”

A visibly stunned Griffin immediately responded, “No!”


“Oh, my god!” the 34-year-old former Trump administration official further exclaimed with a laugh. “You can’t say that when my mother-in-law is here, who’s been dying for me to get pregnant!”

Co-host Joy Behar then asked Goldberg a question most everyone was likely thinking: “Why would you say that?”

The question came from nowhere since Goldberg, at the time, was discussing with co-host Sunny Hostin about Sen. Mitt Romney’s (R-Utah) decision not to run for reelection next year.

Nevertheless, she said she would “take a test when I get home just to be sure.”


“I’m giving credit to my makeup artist for making my face look like it was glowing,” she added with a laugh during a post-show interview on “The View: Behind the Table” podcast.

The previous week, the liberal co-hosts were shredded online after claiming during a show that illegal immigrants being sent to New York City should be “resettled elsewhere.”

The remarks came after Democratic NYC Mayor Eric Adams gave a dire update on the situation after an influx of more than 110,000 migrants since last year, many of them having been bussed to the Big Apple from overwhelmed border states like Texas.

“I think New York is now getting a small taste of what border states have dealt with for decades,” The View co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin said to begin the “Hot Topics” segment.

“This is not a federal problem. This is not an American problem. This is a regional problem. This is a world problem and I think it takes everybody sitting together, not being performative,” complained co-host Ana Navarro. “What is being performative? Sending busloads of migrants to Kamala Harris’ house or Martha’s Vineyard.”
