As their parents continue to make tabloid headlines – Jon faces contempt charges for taking money out of a joint account, while Kate has just lost the reality show franchise that made her famous – the eight children of Jon and Kate Gosselin are starting to feel the effects of all the stress.

In a new article posted on Vanity Fair.com, Kate reveals her brood has been "acting out" lately – but she is hopeful it's a phase that will pass as the kids adjust to their life with divorced parents.

"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."

Referring to Jon, she says, "They miss him. They say they miss him. I imagine they say the same thing when I'm away."

Not only are the kids hurting without both their parents together, Kate recently said that the demise of their hit show Jon & Kate Plus 8 – which came after Jon objected to his children being filmed once TLC announced plans to relaunch the show as simply Kate Plus 8 – has caused plenty of heartache at home.

Last week on the Today show, Kate said, "Over the weekend I told [the kids] that we're not filming at this point. And actually, times eight, there was wailing and sobbing. They love our crew, they love the interaction, they love the events. There is nothing harmful about it. They are angry."
