With all the drama that surrounds them, it’s no wonder the Gosselin kids have been acting out.

With dad, Jon, facing contempt charges for taking money from a joint account and mom, Kate, losing the reality show that’s been paying the bills, among other things, the kids are starting to feel the effects of all the stress.

Kate recently told Vanity Fair that she is hopeful that it’s a phase that will pass as the kids adjust to their life with divorced parents.

She says, “I’m trying to give them the grace to see, if they’re acting out of line, I’m trying to look deeper into why that is,” she says in the article. “Why the kids are acting out. Cause it’s all inter-related. I mean, they don’t see it, but it’s all interconnected.”
