Kate's kids expelled (Kate Gosselin)
The New York Post ^ | 11/12/10 | MAXINE SHEN

Posted on 11/26/2010 9:50:05 PM PST by nmh

Two of the 6-year-old Gosselin sextuplets are said to be having a rough time in their new school.

According to reports from In Touch, Collin and Alexis have been expelled from their Pennsylvania private school and are now being homeschooled.

"They've fought with their peers, called them nasty names and made fun of other kids," a source close to the family told the magazine. "The things they are saying are not words they should know. They are learning them somewhere -- but Jon [Gosselin, their dad] doesn't know where."

The source also said that some of the eight kids are having "rage issues" linked to filming on the new reality series, "Kate Plus 8."

...

Previously, one of the sextuplet girls had been suspended from school for two weeks after hitting a classmate, according to reports

...

Kate Gosselin's "number one concern is protecting her children and is keeping this personal situation as a private matter that she works out with her kids."

I suppose it isn't working out so well for SUPER MOM!

I don't know who's worse - Kate or Jon?

Somehow I'm not surprised that Kate wants to keep this as a "private matter" as she continues to exploit her kids to finance her lavish lifestyle requirements. How messed up the kids are won't matter to her. Why she's a "single mom" now and she MUST live this way. We were told the kids LOVE it!

I wonder ... will Super Nanny be knocking on Kate's door soon since neither her of Jon had any normal parenting skills.

Who knows ... maybe the private school wasn't used to upscale tailer trash - courtesy of their "parents". I do feel sorry for the kids. They had no choice in who their "parents" were. For Kate, it's NOT about the kids as she claims ... it's ALL about Kate and living large. For Jon, who knows! He's basically finished and off the gravy train. They need to END this "show".

I sort of had hope for Jon. The whole time the show was on (before they divorced)he was sort of the normal one, except for being emasculated constantly by Kate.

But he flaked out there towards the end and turned into Mr. H*rny Teenybooper.

But Kate? She was always scum.

Look to see the eight become police blotter and tabloid fodder over the next thirty or so years.

A 6 year old gets expelled for hitting another child..really? My 3 year old grandson bit his brother today REALLY HARD...ALL KIDS DO CRAP LIKE THAT. Aren’t professionals supposed to know how to deal with it? We are going to have a generation of neurotic men...who are being punished for every boyish thing they ever do or even think of doing. WHAT ARE WE DOING?

This is one homeschooling mom I’m skeptical of. I understand that the children get most agitated when they’re being photographed. At least one of the alleged incidents occured during some kind of class picture.

Although I am not a fan of Jon OR Kate, I do totally agree with you Hildy! Kids have to learn and how else do they learn but by doing and suffering the consequences?

I could see sending Kate’s son to the principal’s office at the very worst, but expelling him? Come on! That’s crazy. I feel sorry for boys these days - they aren’t really allowed to be boys. I’m not saying I like children that can’t behave but they all have to learn - let kids be kids.

They didn't say WHY the six year olds got expelled. It was mentioned that another was suspended for hitting others. In a private school this is not acceptable and they don't suspend you the first time around. You have to do allot to be expelled or even suspended in kindergarten! Typically kids learn civilized behavior at home and in preschool if they are enrolled. This proves how terrible the "parenting" is there.

"We" aren't doing anything wrong. It's societies view that kids are resilient and bounce back from divorce like it's no big deal. It is a big deal to them. Plus you have narcissistic, adolescents posing as adults and worse yet, parents - making a mess of these kids. The problem is some people want to believe that NOT being around and raising your kids works! It doesn't.

I think the whole story is that there was a suspension first, due to violence and bullying from the two Gosselins in question. When the two came back and were unable to control their behavior, the school was forced to remove them.

So, not just a little play ground upset but some extreme violent behaviors towards other children.

It didn't say WHY these two boys were expelled.

Trust me, private schools do allow for boys to be boys. It takes allot to EXPELL kids in first grade (six years old). I made a mistake before and stated it was kindergarten for six year olds.

The private school we use gives them Warnings (3) and that includes a note home to the parents for each warning. Prior to the formal note home, they are verbally warned a few times. After the third warning a parent, teacher and principle conference is called. Next come the demerits which include a parent, teacher, and Principal, headmaster or Superintend and sometimes a Chancellor conference on how to remedy the situation. This will depend on the chain of command and their rules. If that doesn't work after a certain amount of time, the kids are expelled.

I don't know how many demerits are needed before you are expelled from her school but you typically need allot. I couldn't tell you for sure about ours since we didn't' have this issue. It varies by school on what the amount of demerits are for each infraction and how they are worked off. At our school for each month of no warnings and demerits you loose a certain amount of demerits. I didn't have these issues so I'm giving you general guidelines.

As a parent, I WANT kids to behave. One of the reasons parents private school their kids or even home school them is to avoid bad behavior as well as better academics. Just last month, a kid in my daughter's middle school class got caught using the “F” word. He got suspended for three days and 0's for any homework or tests.. I was glad. We do NOT want that kind of language at school. I was pleased to see them enforce their rules. I have no problem with this. There is no reason for a middle schooler or in Kate's situation a younger kid using foul language.

Come to think of it there was one kid that hit the jackpot! SHE skipped the warnings, verbal and written. SHE was instantly suspended for three days. This happened in kindergarten.

SHE was mad because two boys she was playing with knocked down the blocks of her house. They purposely destroyed her silly house. This happens and she was mad. So she waited for lunch time and in front of everyone in the lunch line, ahem, grabbed and yanked their "hotdogs". The proctors saw it and so did the other kids. It wasn't a sexual move. It was just meant to embarrass them and "get even".

I wouldn't know what possessed her to do that to "get even". Still you can't have kids doing that. This particular girl had issues with talking in class but nothing really major - a few warnings and no demerits till she did that.

At the end of the school year they moved and the school expunged the suspension off her record. After the suspension, during the school year, from what I know, she was a good kid and behaved herself. Even though this was a girl, I had no problem with a suspension. If it were a BOY, grabbing two girls in the crotch in front of everyone to "get even" I would also expect that BOY to be suspended too.

I work in a private school and I was going to say something similar but you said it far better than I.

I have a feeling some of the Gosselin kids have learning differences due to birth and or home difficulties. These kids may do better in a learning environment that is better suited for learning differences.

No problem ...I'm used to seeing it in progressives. Then they wonder WHY kids are so out of control when there are no consequences and parents don't FEEL the need to discipline their own kids since they're too busy making money.

But, but, she's DOING IT FOR THE KIDS!

Yes, liposuction, bleached teeth, boob jobs, manicures, pedicures, bleached out hair, weird haircuts, advertising herself in a bikini for dating, Dancing with the Stars, writing books, doing book tours, giving ADVICE to other parents etc.. It's ALL for the kids!

“I work in a private school and I was going to say something similar but you said it far better than I.”

It was a tad garbled but it's from what I remember. I'm sure you could do better. Luckily ours stayed out of trouble. We are now in the throws of middle school and that has it challenges ... it's strict where we send ours and we WANT that. I escape the "fashion" nonsense with uniforms. It's worth it. We aren't "rich" but we manage.

People are getting the wrong impression and that is why I tried to explain how private schools typically work. It wasn't like Kate or Jon had NO CLUE on what their kids were up to. Or shocked that trouble was brewing in school. They had PLENTY of WARNINGS and CONFERNCES but OTHER THINGS were more important that their kids - so it escalated.

They probably thought WHO THEY THINK THEY ARE would take care of consequences. They were wrong. Other parents don't want that kind of behavior and pay a premium to GET AWAY FROM THESE KINDS OF KIDS!

“I have a feeling some of the Gosselin kids have learning differences due to birth and or home difficulties. These kids may do better in a learning environment that is better suited for learning differences. “

That's another thought ... learning difficulties ... but I suspect it might also be their messed up home life. Even kids that have learning difficulties are NOT usually violent and foul mouthed. This is more of a parental issue and typically from neglect.

I suspect these kids are angry, looking for attention and going about it in the wrong way. Unresolved divorce issues probably haunt them too. These are just kids and with how ugly the "adults" were ... kids pick up on that. There is no love lost between Kate and Jon, from what I recall.

I truly can't imagine that Kate is sweet mouthed at all times around her kids. She has a sharp tongue. The foul language probably came from Jon and Kate. In any event, the show needs to be cancelled and attention spent on the kids and get them in line. At some point Kate in particular has to BE the mom she claims she is. As fo Jon, who knows what to say about him. It's a sad situation.

Haven’t really kept up with the whole “plus 8” escapades.

We did have the channel the show was on for a while when it first aired. All I remember was that the two oldest girls (twins) were just HORRIBLE... acting out, sassy, whiney and poor examples for the younger 6. John and Kate did not do well in disciplining them at all. And it is highly likely that all the kids are having a difficult time adjusting to the divorce of their parents while living in a fishbowl.

A 6 year old gets expelled for hitting another child..really? My 3 year old grandson bit his brother today REALLY HARD...ALL KIDS DO CRAP LIKE THAT.

The principal owes not just these children, but every other child in that school a calm environment in which to learn. It's not his/her job to cure "rage issues" (mentioned in the article) in children. I also noticed in the article that three of the children have been expelled, two of which are girls. Girls (generally) don't act out as much as boys, especially violently. This really sets alarm bells off for me.

I would bet nearly anything that there is much more to this than one child simply hitting another. I've seen the mother on TV and she's very confrontational, and seems downright uninterested in her kids. If she's like that on TV, I wonder what she's like with her children in private

Aren’t professionals supposed to know how to deal with it? We are going to have a generation of neurotic men...who are being punished for every boyish thing they ever do or even think of doing. WHAT ARE WE DOING?

Just my opinion, but in this case, these children may be a detriment to the other kids at school. I sincerely do not think that it can possibly be in any child's best interest to have their private lives filmed for TV. It can't be good for the child and it can't help with their emotional development. Principals and teachers can only do so much with children who have been emotionally damaged.

If we sent our child to this (private) school, you could bet that we would not tolerate our children having obscenities screamed at them and/or being hit. I doubt the other parents are too happy about it, either.

Just another reason to homeschool, which we do :D

I agree the show is pathetic. Unfortunately it won't be cancelled until it has now viewers.

Also on one hand Kate and her ex man appear to be a trashy. However from what I understand Kate is an registered nurse. Nursing is a noble profession that pays pretty well. It is also not an easy discipline to major in in school. I guess the only thing this proves is that even an RN can be kind of trashy.

As far as her ex husband I have no idea what he used to do. I know that as soon as he found a little fame he started banging chicks all over the place. To hell with his 8 children.

Kate Gosselin's "number one concern is protecting her children and is keeping this personal situation as a private matter that she works out with her kids."

Oh, NOW she wants things private. Never mind that privacy concerns sure didn't bother her a few years ago to exploit them on TV for millions to see for some big money.

Kate sounds just like Clinton. When it's glaringly negative, then her PUBLIC like becomes PRIVATE because it shows the HYPOCISY. This might affect her BOOK SALES, SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS and GIVING ADVICE to OTHERS. I am so tired of these narcissistic, self serving, greedy, hypocrites that will do anything for money and fame.

Other parents will FORCE the school to take action. IN tough times, NO private school wants the other kids to LEAVE and loose the tuition because of undisciplined kids. So the parents of the other kids do serve as a check and a balance.

Privates school will tolerate less favoritism and winking at bad behavior. Kate would be better off putting her kids BACK into a public school. There she could blend in with the crowd that winks at bad behavior and all prepared with the excuses of “kids will be kids” - indefinitely.

OTOH, some parents want kids to be disciplined. OTOH when kids are disciplined in school, some parents moan about that. I say, put them in PUBLIC school and they will get away with what ever they want. It's really tough if not impossible to be expelled from a public school.

Heck the public schools THRIVE on undisciplined kids. They'll require the kid to load up on drugs and then get state aid for the kid. Undisciplined kids are a cash cow for the PUBLIC schools. It's interesting to see the reactions of people here, who want to excuse the behavior and don't understand how private schools operate whenit comes to discipline and rules.

Research from WWI and WWII showed that a relatively small number of combatants, something like one in ten, did most of the fighting.

The military subsequently spent a large amount of money trying ot determine what a made a “shooter” - that tenth guy.

The best indicator they discovered was a large number of siblings...

What’s shocking is “mom” like to compete with their teenage daughters. No kidding. They DRESS and ACT like them and want to be their FRIENDS. They don’t want a line there where they are the AUTHORITY figures. They still RESENT authority. It’s common for girls to get boob jobs for their Sweet Sixteen birthday or other cosmetic surgery. WY? Because “mom” doesn’t want them to “suffer through issues” and have “low self esteem”.

They are all adorable but it takes a lot to get EXPELLED from their NEW school which is a private school. They've only been in the “NEW” school since September and it's only November 27th, 2010. So before Thanksgiving they were already expelled since someone is being “homeschooled” - two of them. It took less than two months to EXPELL two of them - that's shameful.

As I said before, you have to do ALLOT to get expelled from a private school. I don't have much hope for their “homeschooling” if they are so undisciplined.

Truly tjhe kids are all adorable but with their “parents” being idiotic, it’s going to be tough for them to grow right.

Or how about announcing their divorce as part of their show and all the nasty cell phone calls that were publicized and most recently, Kate ADVERTIZING herself as “ready to date”. They want to control what is put out there and ONLY the good things - from their weird perspective ... that they believe will BENEFIT THEM. These peoplehave NO SHAME when it comes to lining their pockets and being hypocrites.

A large number of siblings is fine, when they have the proper values/beliefs and are DISCIPLINED. No kid can learn any of this if they are undisciplined.I servisouly question the true VALUES and BELIEFS these kids really have. I amnot objecting to the number of kids they have. I am objecting to the progressive way they are being raised - absent parents and when they are around, they are VERY IMMATURE.

It simply doesn’t work to have OTHERS raise your kids.

Good!

May I ask if you work in a public or a private school or with ADULTS in the private sector. Many “adults” behave like this and want special standards, well, just because they don’t believe the RULES should apply to THEM.

I was thinking more in terms of potty humor. Sorry.
