Jenelle Evans needs to take a step back from her tumultuous relationship with fiancé Nathan Griffith — because while she's busy dealing with his domestic abuse arrest, her five-year-old son, Jace, is reportedly struggling.
“The constant fighting all the time is affecting Jace at school,” said a source. “He gets scared whenever he goes over to Jenelle and Nathan’s house and the teachers notice it every time. It’s a pattern.”

Nathan was recently taken away in handcuffs after having a vicious argument with the 'Teen Mom 2' star. He reportedly pinned her up against the toilet and ripped her engagement ring off of her finger.

Not exactly a healthy environment for Jenelle's little boy or the couple's seven-month-old baby, Kaiser. As previously reported, the reality star is in the middle of fighting her mother, Barbara Evans, for full custody of Jace.
"When Barbara took custody of him, she wanted to raise him and protect him so he wouldn’t grow up in trouble. So he’d be an upstanding kid. It’s just affecting him too much to be there," a source told 'Radar Online.'
The source also adds that Jace is getting into frequent fights at school and isn't completing his schoolwork.
Absolutely awful. We're hoping he gets the help he needs.
