  • His yelling is kind of understandable from his point of view if he was really sick and trying to take care of the children and counted on your being there soon. Being exhausted and sick can make somebody lose their temper. But throwing things is not understandable. If he is threatening you then you need to get out now. If this was a one time thing, then talk with him now about how it wasn't acceptable at all. Repeat that you are sorry, but that things happen. Then you can have your Christmas celebration. If he really is remorseful then it should be OK, but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't now be alert to more violence and have in mind a way out.

  • Sounds like some one needs anger management. Id piss,too and tell him to go eat some dirt.

  • people can be arrested for things like that. if this is the first time he's done something like that? if so, maybe something is going on that he's not talking about. if he won't open up to you, maybe counseling is in order. this cannot turn into a trend.

    throwing and yelling like that are examples of abusive behaviors. this is not a spiral you want you and the kids around...BELIEVE ME.

  • What's hubby like when he drives or other times when you ask him to watch kids? Is he otherwise just about really and truly nearly always 24/7 helpful around the house and out of the house? When in a store does he help with the kids or walks with the cart while you chase kids and pick things? If his actions were first, second time random then I wouldn't worry except for your ego hurting. When you yourself are sick does he physically take care of you and kids, house or you have to do that all yourself? Think of his history. Think some more.

  • I would tell him that your sorry it took so long when shopping it was unforseen I would tell him that you should have called him to tell him you were running late but lost track of time in the crazyness that is last minute holiday shopping. Tell him u know he was not feeling well and u feel even woorse this occured don't bring up the the holidays this only complicates things After you get done kissing his ass let him know very matter of factly that in no situation is it ok that he start tossing shit around the house giving the kids permissions that's how we handle things when we don't feel well The kids probably have some idea that daddy is sick or "not feeling well" finsh what ur saying with a question that requires a yes response like- "we don't want the kids to think it's ok to do that kind of stuff right .?" Once he says yes give him a hug a kiss and quickly say I'm thirsty as hell u want something to drink 2

  • A question for you? Are all the kids his? He sounds like a bitter man to me who did not want to be stuck in the "house" with the nect mans child. Tell him to chill. We as mothers do it all the time, keeping the kids. What kills me is that the men think they are "babysitting" when we leave them at home with the kids. No buddy, you cannot babysit your own child!!!!!!!! Welcome to the real world or parenthood.
    On another note, he sounds a little on the abusive side throwing furniture around. Is he behaving this way around the children? If so, that definitely need to stop ASAP. Anger management classes may not be such a bad idea.
    Good Luck

  • ok so probably not what you want to hear but thats just how the abuse started with my kids father after 4 yrs of no so much as a dirty look!!!!!!! it all started with violent behavior that was "because of me" but not at me throwing dishes when i made him mad and such and it didnt take long before that violence was directed at me
