I played it off at first as him never being a dad (was only 21 when we got together) and my son was 4. he is now 9. He says things that to me would lower a childs self esteem.He swears a lot and basically acts like my son is stupid. He doesn't come out and say it but the tone he uses and his phrasing such as "come on use your brain duh". I feel like I should have chosen someone better for my son.his real dad is not around and I do have a 2yt old with my husband.We talk about it and he admits he needs to change the way he says things. I've suggested parenting classes but "I dont need them, I'll change" and he does not seem to get the impact of what we say has on a child. So frustrated, I dont know if I should give up on my marriage due to this. He is a good dad to our daughter and never is abusive, except during these circumstances. What would you do? I do not have the income to "just leave".
