In an interview with The Today Show broadcast on Wednesday, Kate Gosselin opened up about the difficulties she’s having with her kids.
Kate decided “set the record straight” and insisted that it was her who removed two of her sextuplets, Collin and Alexis, 6, from school and that they were not expelled, as rumors have said.
“We have a situation where my kids are in an academic excelling school, where academics are pushed”, she explained.
However she admitted, “They were having anger issues, acting out, having behavior things.” Given the circumstances of the divorce, she said their issues are “very normal, normal stuff.”
“They’ve been the ones to verbalize the most that they miss Daddy,” she says. “I could see that they’re the ones struggling the most.”
Now Kate and the school “mutually agreed” to take them out. “I brought them home. I have them with a private tutor, an early education teacher, and she’s teaching them one-on-one, and they are excelling. Along with weekly therapy. My kids are back. They’re happy. They’re functioning, and all is well again.”
As for the rest of the gang, she says they’re doing “extremely well.”
“All six are excelling in school and at home and doing everything they should be doing.”
As far as the holidays are concerned, she said she expects them to be „peaceful.” “I’m pushing ahead and providing a future for my kids,” she said. “I don’t have time to waste sitting around being upset.”
Kate divorced her reality husband Jon last year and says things are now coming back to normal.
“We are doing wonderful. It’s so good a year later to feel put back together and functioning in a routine.”
