My husband and I have a beautiful 9 month old daughter, and we just recently found out about 8 months ago that my husband has a 15 month onld son, but his ex-girlfriend. So we have had his son on our home every weekend since then. My husband gets so MAD at some the the things his son does, he will hurt. And when I say hurt him I mean like this past saturday his son wouldn't stop crying so he picked him up and started yelling at him and shook him. And then just last night his son was in the high chair and was screaming at the top of his lungs because he wanted cookie his sister had and I was trying to correct him and my husband came in the room and slammed his hand on top of his hand on the tray and left a welt mark. My question is, I don't know what to do, I have tried talking to him about hte abuse but he just states to me"WHATEVER" And I told him last night if it doesn't stop, his daughter and I will be leaving. HELP!Answer Question

Your husband needs professional help for his abusive behavior. Do not wait until another "incident" occurs, tell him TODAY that he must get help before he can come back home. I would call CPS or at least the little boy's mother. By no means should your husband be allowed visitation with his son.
Have someone else at the home with you when you tell your husband to leave. You need support from a friend or family member in case he refuses to leave or gets violent. DO NOT be afraid to call the police.
