Do not talk to him when you are emotional, have a friend there for support if you need to, and very calmly and adult like explain to him that you do not appreciate the way he talks to you. Let him know if he has concerns that he is welcomed to talk with you; however, if he can't be mature and respectful then the two of you will have to talk with a mediator. Most cities have low cost mediators parents can use to work things out. As far as your anger, you have to work through it. It's not going to just disappear. I felt that sort of anger when my exhusband filed to get custody of our children and all I could do was be as civil to my ex as I could and work through my issues. It does not good to take your anger out on him though. Becareful what you say and do. Think long and hard before you act. You'll have to CYA for a while. Just know that the anger does die down eventually, though it may not go completely away.
