The Gosselins have a case of the terrible twos … and the irate eight.
Two of Jon and Kate Gosselin’s sextuplets have reportedly been suspended from school for fighting.
Both Collin and Alexis, who allegedly hit another student, have been expelled for two weeks and are being homeschooled after displaying bullying behavior at their elementary school in Lancaster, Pa.
“They’ve fought with their peers, called them nasty names and made fun of other kids,” says a source connected to the family to In Touch Weekly. “The things they are saying are not words they should know.”
One would think controlling Kate would be concerned about her kids acting out–and she may very well be–but Kate’s main focus is still on their reality series, if you believe the reports.
“The show is her biggest priority,” says the source. “If the kids are unhappy, she doesn’t let that stop her.”
But apparently all the kids in the Gosselin gang–ten-year-old twins Cara and Mady, and six-year-old sextuplets Hannah, Aaden, Leah, Joel, Collin and Alexis–have behavioral problems.
The children are said to be exhibiting “rage issues” and “problems with anger management.”
Papa Jon has been piping up again recently that his brood’s participation in TLC’s ‘Kate Plus 8‘ is damaging. Gosselin expressed his rage last month on Twitter, writing that he ‘will have guilt for the rest of his life.’
Do you think the reality show is to blame for the tots’ troubles? Or the Gosselins’ divorce? The media madness? Or is family dysfunction an unavoidable consequence when you have so many children? Or could ‘the eight’ just be going through growing pains like some kids do?
