Does and anybody have or had a verbally abusive parent?

My father likes to control a situation and people. He doesn't believe my son should see his father because my sons father didn't treat me good. So, I'm at his house (my fathers house) and I mention that my son is going to see his father sunday, which he sees every sunday for about 3hrs. My dad flipped, called me a dum stupid women for allowing this guy to see my son. I'm like those stupid women with no common sense. Even though my sons father is actually really great with him. I left and said dont talk to me like that in front of my child, you need to control yourself. My dad has always been that way.

  • My mother was very verbally and physically abusive and yet I am the total opposite. I am quiet yet firm and never use violence to discipline my children and they are well rounded and positive young teens!

  • Although your father probably has you & your son's best interest at heart, it is imperative that he show you some respect! I would let him know that if he can't control his temper and speak to you in a respectful way, then you won't be visiting him anymore. And then, stick to it!
