Kate Gosselin's Daughter Gets Suspended From School For Fighting! Is Kate Causing This Bad Behavior?

Wed, November 3, 2010 11:19am EDT by 147 Comments

One of Kate Gosselin’s 6-year-old daughters was reportedly suspended from her elementary school for fighting. Experts tell HollyBaby.com that Kate’s attitude is adversely affecting her kids.

Kate Gosselin‘s eight kids ( 6-year-old sextuplets Alexis, Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Leah, Joel and 10-year-old twins Cara and Madelyn) are starting to act out! One of the sextuplets was reportedly kicked out of their school in Pennsylvania’s Lancaster County for two weeks! A source close to the family tells Us that the little girl was suspended from school for hitting a classmate. “Hitting another child is an aggressive act. It’s bullying! Schools are finally taking bullying very seriously,” says New York City-based psychologist Dr. Gilda Carle. And she thinks that Kate is to blame for this!

Jon says the reality show has hurt his 8 kids!

“Kate’s controlling behavior could definitely play a part in her daughter’s unwillingness to be so constrained,” Dr. Carle tells HollyBaby.com. She is quick to point out that Kate’s divorce from Jon Gosselin may have triggered the girl’s out-of-control actions, “especially since these parents continue to go at each other, putting the kids in the middle.” Adding to kids’ instability is the fact that they “are never sure if Kate’s going to yell at them or be nice,” says the insider.

Kate’s kids don’t have any fun at the corn maze

But Dr. Carle is especially disturbed by the way that Kate reportedly handled her daughter’s incident at school. The insider tells Us that Kate yelled at the girl, “You’re embarrassing me!” which Dr. Carle says was the worst thing to do. “Here’s a kid who’s acting out, and Kate makes this all about her! What Kate should do is discuss with her daughter why she’s acting out — not by yelling at her or lecturing her, but by listening to what the child has to say,” she says. “I suspect there’s very little listening in that household, only dictatorial directions.”

Kate’s nanny quits!

We couldn’t agree more, Dr. Carle! Perhaps it’s time for Kate to step out of the spotlight and give her kids all of her attention, not just when the cameras are rolling.

Hailey Glassman says Jon is lying about trying to be a better father!

I suspect that this behavior from this kid has been going on for awhile and this incident was the last straw that broke the camels back. I for one am glad that this school took action and all schools should do the same. I don’t care that this kid is 6 years old, she is old enough to know better, she knew what she was doing.

It’s strange the way her fans say that it’s a PRIVATE matter and should not be reported, so are BOWEL movements but their mother didn’t hesitate to FILM that for the public to view.

Exactly. One major Kate Fan blog is going on and on about this article and the invasion of privacy. Okaaaaayyy. When did the Kate Gosselin and Kate and Jon before that give one iota about the kids’ privacy. Ummmmm, that would be never.

These children grew up seeing Kate slap Jon and laugh about it. As we saw captured on film. Kate parented the tups by keeping them in their cribs for 3 hour afternoon naps, and then dragging them out to be filmed for activities they could not fully participate in, because Kate was scared they would get their clothes dirty, clothes she intended to sell. They have no freedom. Even their food is portion controlled by Kate. They have not learned how to think, how to socialize, how to interact, how to express… walking ticking timebombs. Shame on Kate.

I completely disagree, going through a divorce and having 7 siblings is stress enough to cause any kid to have an occasional bad day. What kid hasn’t hit or bitten at one time or another, as a teacher’s aide, girl scout leader, and a religious ed teacher I can assure you that from time to time children act out. Oh and by the way next time can you post a picture of your “Perfect Parent” award?

Tia – while I agree with you many children act out,for many reasons, it was disconcerting to watch, during one of the early episodes, when Kate was testing a housecleaner, as the children hit and kicked each other – and she said nothing. Later, on the couch, she remarked about “picking her battles”. A statement she has made more than once, on her blog she wrote an entire entry calling it “The Complaint Department is Closed”. She prefers to let her kids handle it on their own. Sorry, but the kids need instruction and guidance to be able to “handle it on their own”. Her reluctance to interact with her children is disturbing. Oh, wait, she does intereat, we know she spanks (hits) her kids – a photog got a snap of it – hitting is hitting, kids learn by example. Neither adults nor children should hit. So not only is Kate giving the wrong message by spanking, she refuses to even admonishi the children when they hit each other. I’ll not even address her constant slapping of Jon (oh yes, that was supposedly “playful”…) Kate does need to look at herself, IF this siutation with the daughter and school really did take place.

Everyone needs to calm down. I don’t think those two are the BEST parents,but we don’t live with them 24/7. It’s alot of stress,and it seems like everyone likes to make a huge deal of everything Kate does or her children do…which also may not help their case.
Another thing,children who don’t have celebrity parents do this too…it’s not like it can’t be delt with.

i use to watch John and Kate plus 8 all the time and thought they were a great family, Until the divorce. Take a leaf out of the Dugger family with 19 children and happily married still. That’s why the children are running around wild now. They have had no real life and now at school they are playing up. Get married again if you really love your children. or was this just to make money and not care about the kids at all.

So true, her parenting style is beyond lacking. She has been filmed and photographed “steering” the kids around by the head, hitting them (Leah), pinching them (Collin), the picture in this post (Joel?) where she’s smashing a kid’s face…be it not hard or not…THE FACE? OMG!, thinks a cold laundry floor is a cozy place to be ill, threatens to toss a favorite teddy bear, moves to a new house and does throw out favorite stuffed animals, throws a wooden toy high chair down a long flight of stairs, allowing it to hit the wall several times as it crashes down to the landing–hmm, anger management issues/ya think?, tells they kids THEY”RE RUINED (not the outfits) they themselves for spilling icecream (at what, age 3??), allows boys to decorate a cupcake on their birthday then tosses them, when the boys don’t finish their dinner (THEIR BDAY!), denies the twins REALLY FUN type multiple trips/birthday parties because they are not special “high-order multiples”…ah, darn…just twins, SCREAMS at them instead of talking, still has the tups (at age 6) in high chairs (were the twins in high chairs at age 6? um, nope), complains LOUDLY that the twins have several blankets in their bedroom that shouldn’t be there and only notices one day because she admits she hasn’t gone in there in 2 or 3 months (what? who’s been tucking Mada and Cara in at night?), threatens that if ANY of her children EVER go into HER bedroom EVER there will be a SEVERE penalty, sits a boy on the potty chair in his bedroom and tells him he can’t get off it until he goes then she walks away…shuts off his bedroom light and leaves him all alone on the potty chair in the dark for gawd knows how long, IN THE DARK!, isolateds them from neighbors and school friends, leaves the piano behind, insists they eat their meal food in the “correct order”…who knew there was an order?…besides dessert last (oh yeah, these kids will have eating disorders, you can count on it), denies one or more of them water while waiting for a STUPID much-more-important-than-thirst tv interview and even drinks water in front of the poor child, marches them around NYC in fataly dangerous heat so they could be filmed, so hot later, kids fall asleep and she then shoves sugar treats down their throat to keep them awake to FINISH filming, allows them to be filmed on a boat vomitting and also laying on benches covered in vomit, allows them to BE FILMED…
hitting: screaming: kicking: crying: hungry: mad: tired: semi-naked: throwing tantrums:throwing up: name calling: parental fights and DIVORCE mess:.. all for the almighty dollar,and this is not exploitation???
I could go on, as most of you know, but I’m afraid of carpal tunnel.
The Gosselin 8 children are the youngest ever to be on realitly tv. An experiment that went hugely wrong. It’s time for it to END and for what little privacy they have left be returned to them.

The Truth Hurts

Posted at 1:56 PM on November 4, 2010  

I am sorry that BOTH parents chose to place their children in a position where a kindergartener being suspended from school is news.

Neither parent has done a very good job in protecting their children’s privacy. I hope Jon is sincere, this time, about getting his children off television. I hope he is doing it for the right reasons and not as punitive damage to hurt Kate.

The craziness needs to stop.

I love how everyone on here has “concern” for the children, yet these commenters on here who have their own hate blogs or comment on the hate blogs — blogs that hate Kate and blogs that love Kate — all exploit the children for their own financial gain. They all have blogs documenting every tabloid moment of the Gosselin lives and are probably as we speak posting this very story on their websites. Some will say its Kate’s fault, some will blame it on Jon. Yet, they will all be okay with it even though they are trashing the parents of these children. They are all morons.

The children didn’t ask for this lifestyle and have certainly already paid a high enough price for their parent’s decisions.

Those doubting the validity of this story? That such young children DON’T ever get so severe of a punishment?

What about the kindergarten girl who was ARRESTED for bringing tylenol/aspirin to school? (zero tolerance ‘drug’ policy) Or the six/seven year old expelled for having scissors in her bag? The little boy with a pocket knife?

Schools can and DO respond strictly to violence and similar offenses. Zero tolerance means zero tolerance. Follow the rules or suffer the penalty of severeness.

This story was leaked by Kate’s people to generate ratings. She is desperate to continue the show and – as usual – will resort to humiliating her children to continue filming. The Gosselin 8 are props to Kate.

This is a bunch of BULL. Honestly when have you ever known a school to suspend ANY chile for 2 weeks? Let alone a 6 year old kindergarten baby? Seriously people who have kids or know kids know this story is a crock, I have never heard of a six yr old being suspended and Ibe never heard of a child bring suspended 2 weeks. I have a troubling making younger brother who goes to private school and has been in fist fights and he’s only gotten 3 days home suspension and in house after that.

I’ve been a teacher and I currently volunteer at a Parochial elementary school. Suspensions of 2 weeks occur more often than you think, especially when the behavior is intractable. And yes, kindergarten pupils are suspended, too. The punishment is usually incremental – starting with in-school correction and progressing up to and including dismissal.

Exactly the point I was just trying to make – this type of punishment is a regular occurrence. Any parent or school employee can attest to that fact.

You should take this down. Even if it’s true, this is not something anyone who has any concern for the kids should post. And even if it’s true, you’ve no idea what was said to the child to cause the reaction.

Posted at 11:33 PM on November 3, 2010  

Why is anyone surprised by this news?
Kate bullied Jon for years. What we saw on the show was atrocious but what is even worse is how Kate treated Jon in private. Jon was the victim of spousal abuse. So of course, the little girls are going to think that beating people up is acceptable behavior.

I’m surprised by the 2 week suspension and my hunch is that this is not the first violation from this child. I have a feeling it’s been going on for some time and the school is dishing out a strong punishment hoping that Kate and the child will get the message.

Parents and companies exploiting children for entertainment of the masses is wrong on so many levels, however that is what Jon and Kate, and then Kate have done since the tups were 16 months and and the twins 4. Why should reporting on this be any different? Why is it any different? It ISN’T. That is what happens when you sell your kids. Kids who have no say in the matter and who are not protected.

Why are you whining about it NOW?

What a surprise (NOT). Kate allows these kids to beat on each other and teaches them that hitting and fighting is okay. Of course they are going to use it on other children. They don’t know any better. The sooner these kids get some real help the better. I’m just surprised something like this hasn’t happened before. And to those who say this shouldn’t have been printed, that it’s private – well, so is potty training, bathing, puking their guts out, and emotional meltdowns, but that’s all been filmed – with the parents’ consent and encouragement – so I can’t get too upset about this being printed. The kids are less likely to see this blog than they are to find their most private and personal moments plastered all over Youtube and TLC’s website.

For those saying this has “nothing” to do with filming? You couldn’t be any more wrong. My kids have never been filmed for a television show. Their successes and/or failures in school will NEVER be newsworthy.

Should Miley Cyrus have had such an incident happen when she was younger, it would have been a story. The Olsen twins? Yep, a story. My neice or nephew? NOT a story. Jonas Brothers? Story. The Duggars? A HUGE story. That weirdo-chick on “Teen Mom” – yeah that was a big story. My paper boy? Not a chance of being a story.

NOBODY would give a hoot if these kids had not been filmed over the past six seasons now (three years, mind you but SIX seasons). It is ALL about the filming.

EVERYBODY…Sheeple and Haters….have witnessed Kate teaching her children how to argue, slap, throw hissy fits, and bully. She is the one teaching her kids to behave this way. It’s what they’ve witnessed since birth. They think this is what you do when you don’t get your way. They’ve been taught that they are entitled and more special than other children, and to put someone in their place, you bully and fight!

Way to go,Kate! Mother of the Year (Not).

It is a sad story. If for some reason it isn’t true, I’m sure someone will clarify it. If these kids hadn’t ever been on television, or if this whole circus hadn’t ever gone beyond the periodic special stage (Dilley six-pack?) this would not be a newsworthy story.

I feel bad for the kids. I feel bad that the incident happened. I feel bad that it’s been reported. I feel bad that these kids have had their childhood dished up as entertainment for the public.

I do NOT think HollyBaby was wrong for printing it. It’s going to be everywhere soon, if not already, if US Weekly has already put it out.

This is not true. My kids attend this school, one girl in 4th grade and a boy in 6th. None of the Gosselin kids have ever been suspended, and I don’t believe I’ve ever even heard of any sort of disciplinary infraction. I believe that a call to the school might be in order to correct this falsehood.

How reckless, to make a headline out of humiliating a little girl. After reading your other headlines, there is no way this is true, no school is going to suspend a 6 year old for 2 weeks, that is not even age appropriate to do so.

I have no respect for a psychologist who is going to speak out about a family when they have not gathered all information to make an assessment. How reckless and unethical of this psychologist, in doing so, you and the writer of this story are just trying to feed hate. What does a psychologist say about bullying, just read the bullying comments directed at Kate.
