Mady Gosselin is offering some advice to her father Jon about how he can repair his estranged relationship with his 15-year-old twins.

In this week’s issue of PEOPLE, Kate Gosselin‘s eldest daughters share their opinions about their dad, and refute any claims that they are intentionally being kept away from him.

While Cara is reserved in sharing her thoughts about Jon – “I wouldn’t even know what to say about him,” she tells PEOPLE – Mady offers insight on the sisters’ perspective.
