Yahoo! reports two of Kate Gosselin’s kids have been expelled from school. Collin and Alexis, both six years old, were expelled for fighting with classmates and using naughty language. A source close to the family reported to In Touch Weekly they made fun of other kids and called them nasty names. Both children are now being homeschooled but we don’t know if Kate is the teacher.
Jon Gosselin claims he doesn’t know from where the kids have learned this behavior. How ironic. Perhaps the incessant fighting and shouting between your ex-wife and yourself could have caused this rude behavior in your own children?
Parenting Skills or “Kate Plus 8” Show?
The Gosselin brood has dealt with a lot of changes over the past two years. The sextuplets started school, their parents divorced, and the paparazzi follow them everywhere.
So are the sextuplets, allegedly dealing with anger management issues, acting out because of their parents or because of television? It’s probably both.
Kate Gosselin needs to support her children and her lifestyle. For her that situation means working on television and probably being away from her eight children. How Kate treats other people like the television crews and everyone around her house will set an example for her children’s behavior. The same goes for Jon. If he yells and curses at everyone then his kids will see the behavior and mimic Jon’s communication skills.
Blaming their reality show “Kate Plus 8” can only work for so long. Somewhere down the line it is the responsibility of the parents to stop the television show since adults are only allowed to work full time jobs. It’s Kate’s signature on the contract with TLC not the kids’.
Eric Roberts Controversy
This news comes a week after deadbeat dad Eric Roberts, brother to Julia and father to Emma, criticized Kate Gosselin as being a “child abuser.” Roberts’ Twitter posts regarding the TLC darling are ironic in light of his own drug problems and the fact he doesn’t talk to his daughter at all.
Roberts says Gosselin should be treated for “anger management” and needs to stop working her kids. Is Roberts saying this so she doesn’t repeat his mistakes or is he just being cruel?
Perhaps homeschooling is what’s best for these kids anyway. Kate Gosselin has enough money to hire a private tutor for her children if she wants to. Maybe TLC can provide one for her since they do just about everything else she asks.
As far as anger management issues, those children probably needed therapy a long time ago when they witnessed their parents’ fighting and eventual divorce. Being caught in a tug of war between two adults is never a good thing. All these eight children need is to be normal kids and not “work” for a while.
