Teen Mom star Jenelle Evans revealed earlier this year that both of her sons, Jace, and Kaiser have been having behavioral issues. She recently did an interview to give fans an update on how they were doing now and revealed that Jace, who lives with her mother, Barb, continues to have issues.
Earlier in the year, Jenelle told fans that her son, Jace had set fire to her mother’s house where he is currently living.
During that time, Jenelle also filed for emergency custody of Jace, claiming that her mother could not handle him anymore and was not getting him the mental health help he needs.
Court papers stated:
“The minor child physically assaulted [Barbara] twice causing injury to [Barbara.] The Minor child also burned the carpet because he was angry with [Barbara].
“The minor child has a history of starting fires in the home of [Barbara].”
Jenelle further claimed that her mother:
“did not contact the crisis line or seek any treatment or professional help for the minor child during this incident.”
Jenelle stated during the most recent interview that:
“Jace is having some issues at school and at my mom’s house, which I can’t go into detail about because there’s a pending custody case.”
On a better note, Jenelle revealed during the interview that her son, Kaiser was doing much better behaviorally.
Jenelle previously told fans that Kaiser had been “kicked out” of two different schools for his behavior.
Jenelle updates fans that:
“Kaiser is doing very good”.
“Kaiser’s doing much better in school.”
She revisited the behavior issued he was having in school and told fans that he’s much less active and more focused.
“He had to repeat kindergarten twice, basically. And the first time he was too young. The second time, he kept getting in trouble. So I was like you know what I’m going to hold him back myself so now he’s in first grade and he’s doing great. And he’s actually learning and not running around the classroom and doing cartwheels.”
“I think Kaiser just had too much energy and they would have quiet reading time and the teacher would be reading a book, he would be the one in the background doing flips and cartwheels, getting in and out of his chair.”
“He would be like, ‘I’m going to the bathroom’ without asking. So he’s just calmed down a little bit.”
“Kaiser’s now more into figuring out what they’re learning. He’s more focused.”
Jenelle told the interviewer that she feels the issues with both her sons were due to lack of maturity.
