He's treating our kids pretty badly. *little update*
I love my husband very much, but he's a horrible parent. Absolutely terrible. He yells and screams at them when they bother him, he sits on his laptop constantly when he's home, he's just mean. And he treats our oldest, Scarlett (who's 5), the worst. He's constantly mean to her, he hates spending time with her, and I just don't know what to do. We had a huge blow out fight this morning, and he's just not interested in changing. He doesn't see where he's wrong, he refuses to read books, he refuses counceling. He thinks that what he does is right, even when it's obviously not. I just don't know what to do. I don't want to be without him, but I can't let him keep treating the kids like shit. What do I do?
I also wanted to add this. This morning, he told me that because I let Scarlett come out of her room when she's ready to apologize for doing something wrong, that she's going to turn into a drug addict. And that because I don't force her to finish her food, when she's 16, she's going to stay out as late as she wants because she's not going to listen to me. I don't know how to argue with that because he's just so irrational.
*little update* The rest of yesterday went much better. I think he can now see where he was wrong, and he was really trying hard to fix it. I do want to say that he started a new job last week, and its put a lot of pressure on him. Its a very good job with a ton of responsibility, so he's been extra stressed. Thank you to everyone who gave me good advice!
