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 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".
Who gives a s....
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.
...............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."
Who didn’t see this coming?
Look to see the eight become police blotter and tabloid fodder over the next thirty or so years.
It’s gonna be like the assorted fates of the “Our Gang/Little Rascals” crew only worse.
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.
Yes Kate, we know already.
What did Chris Rock call these people that are always taking credit for things they're supposed to do?

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.
"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.
Wow. A kid acts up in school. Big deal. Normal. You’re right, we’re raising a generation of neurotic men. Maybe the next generation will throw this idiocy out.
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.
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 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, that lady is nuts with a terrible personality and even worse haircut. She’s had a lot of plastic surgery, but no amount of surgery can repair a miserable woman.
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!
