25% of Gosselin brood expelled for ‘rage issues’

Although the Gosselin family has managed to stay out of trouble for the last few months, it appears that the kids may not have handled the pressures of being reality show stars and their parents’ high profile divorce all that well.

Two of the Gosselins’ eight kids have been booted from their school after having been labeled as exhibiting “rage issues,” The New York Post reports. Collin and Alexis have been kicked out of their private school after acting- well, not unlike any kids under any sort of stress might behave among other kids:

“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.

As the parent of two school-aged kids, my guess would be “other kids who are better at not getting caught.” The Post spoke to a “source close to the situation,” who gave a fairly empty comment on the reports:

TLC had no comment. A source close to the situation, though, told The Post that mom 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.”
