TEEN Mom Jenelle Evans shared an update on her only sons, Jace and Kaiser, after both boys suffered from behavioral issues.
Earlier this year the former MTV star revealed her eldest child had set fire to his grandma Barbara's house, and Kaiser had been booted from two schools.
Talking exclusively to The Sun, Jenelle shared: "Kaiser is doing very good. 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 but Kaiser's doing much better in school.
"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."
The ex reality star continued: "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."
She added: "Kaiser's now more into figuring out what they're learning. He's more focused."
Jenelle also revealed she believed her boys' behavioral issues was due to both just needing to "mature."
While Jenelle currently has custody of 7-year-old Kaiser, who she shares with ex Nathan Griffin, her mom, Barbara, has primary physical and legal custody of Jace, 11.
"We only talk when it's to pick up Jace and drop him off, I pick up and I get him like every other weekend," Jenelle said of her relationship with her mom.

The Teen Mom 2 alum said: "I'm more standoffish to my mom, because of what's going on, and I want to keep the conversation about Jace, and she tries to have it about other things.
"And when I try to bring up Jace, she just totally ignores me about the topic. So we're butting heads right now, and it's not really going anywhere."
"That's why we were gonna go to court, to figure it out," she concluded.
'OUT OF CONTROL'
Back in April, The Sun exclusively obtained North Carolina court papers which noted that Jenelle had filed for sole custody of Jace and asked the court to grant emergency custody to her on January 28, 2021.
In the docs, Jenelle alleged Jace has had “increasingly worse behavior problems that cause him to be physically aggressive, out of control and unsafe.”
Barbara was instructed by his health care provider “multiple times” to call a crisis hotline or go to the Emergency Department if Jace’s “aggression escalates,” Jenelle alleged in the filing.
The former TV personality also touched on an alleged December 19, 2020 incident where Jace and Barbara “argued throughout the day.”
The court papers claimed: “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].”
On top of issues with Jace, Jenelle also revealed that her middle child had been struggling in school.
In an episode of her YouTube series Addicted to Growth, the 29-year-old opened up about struggling with controlling her children.
She said: "Kaiser had a really hard time at school in North Carolina. He was in his first school and got kicked out.
"In the second school, he basically got kicked out, wouldn't behave. And when we got to Tennessee, he started school again."
She added: "Not to throw Nathan under the bus but I contacted Nathan like four or five times, asking if he could help me control Kaiser and control his anger and Nathan was like 'I'm in Florida, I don't know what to do.'"
Nathan, 34, recently revealed he is battling depression and feels he has "lost everything."
Aside from Jace and Kaiser, Jenelle is also a mom to 4-year-old daughter Ensley with her husband, David Eason.
David, 32, was also recently arrested for "driving with a revoked license and open container of alcohol."
