Your husband smacked your six year old dd. S emingly with not very much force, but left a little bruise on her forehead? I'm kind of enraged..

I look at life a lot more long term than just one incident. I'm free to make my own choices, as are you, and I'm confident in my choices.

Quoting mojogirl: A mistake like that? Anger turning to violence is no mistake. If you'd pick your husband over your kids physical well-being then you suck.

Quoting Anonymous 14: With my current husband, I would remove the child from the situation and revisit it with my husband when things have calmed down. I honestly can't imagine him using force like that, but a mistake like that wouldn't be grounds for divorce in our marriage. No one is perfect, and it would have to be a very extreme situation for him to do that. I can't even fathom him turning to that.

If you don't think leaving a bruise is hitting with a lot of force I am scared of what you think a hard hit would be. And to answer your question, if it were my husband they wouldn't find his body.

Leave. Obviously there was enough force to leave a bruise. That for me is enough of a reason to not stay and subject my child to more and worse bruises down the road.

Is it his kid too? Why he do it?

Well, lets think about your options.

In several states in this country it is okay to hit a kid with a wooden paddle multiple times as punishment many times a day if needed,,,,that makes it legal.  

your dh smacking your kid once on the forehead plaes in comparison.  So if you live in one of those barbaric states nothing you can do.

And regardless of where you live,  calling the police will do nothing.  Your dh will not be charged arrested handcuffed or escorted off the property because he disciplines his child.

Quoting Moon.Maiden: LOL, That would be a good solution, except the prison time would bother me.

Quoting Moon.Maiden: God, I hope not. There is a very commonsense solution.
