In a stunning display of cause and effect, Alexis and Colin Gosselin have reportedly been expelled from their private school for essentially imitating their parents, Jon and Kate. OK, technically a source told In Touch Weekly that the two six-year-olds “fought with their peers, called them nasty names and made fun of other kids.” So yeah, imitating their bitter and bickering parents,Ã‚Â who have been calling each other nasty and insulting names in the press for over a year. Now the two young offenders are to be home-schooled.Ã‚Â Somehow we’re not sure if more time in the house with Kate and the rest of theÃ‚Â reality show circus is going to help them better adjust to the world.
“The things they are saying are not words they should know,” the source continued. “They are learning them somewhere, but Jon doesn’t know where.” Perhaps they learned the words from the cameramen who have been following them around every moment of their cognizant existence. Apparently the children have “rage issues” connected with their time on TLC’s reality show,Ã‚Â Kate Plus 8. According to the insider,Ã‚Â “Collin had such bad issues that he refused to get his picture taken at school because he’s tired of being on-camera.” That is one of the saddest things we’ve ever heard. The kid is six, and he’s probably ready to take a swing at a paparazzo. Did you hear that?Ã‚Â It sounded like thousands of child psychologists across the country screaming “I TOLD YOU SO!”
This isn’t the first time one of the Gosselin children have acted out. According to reports, one of the sextuplet girls was expelled for two weeks last spring for hitting a classmate. And it will probably continue unless their situation changes.Ã‚Â Kids are smarter than we think, and no matter how hard the parents and handlers try to shield them from the chaos and fighting that is a part of their lives, they’re going to pick up on it. Hell, all they have to do is google themselves to get the latest chapter of their family battles. Children look to their parents to learn how people interact and get along. And if that respect isn’t there, well…their next series could be Kate and 8 Plus Probation Officer.
