My husband insists upon my children going to see his mother every Saturday. I work Saturdays, the only day I do work. My husband doesn't deny any of this so I know it's true from what my parents have told me and what he's admitted. She hits them, not just a tap on the butt, enough to leave welts while he sits on his effing play station in his old bedroom. She screams at them and once she poured milk over my daughter's head. The woman is UNHINGED. I took last Saturday off and refused to let them go but I cannot take another a week off and I don't know what to do. I've talked to my husband and he's just laughed in my face and said if I don't like old school discipline then I'm an idiot. I wonder if he agrees with it and does it when I'm not there but I don't think so, the children would say. I'm so close to leaving him for the sake of my children over his stupid mother. We need my Saturday income and I need to know my children are safe.Answer Question

May I ask something first.
Did you and your husband discuss and come to an agreement on how your children would be disciplined/what type of discipline you would use before having them?
