My mom told me tonight that our neighbor saw my husband slap one of our boys across the back of the head. I didn't know anything about it. I don't know if I should say something or just wait and see for myself when he gets home. I don't want to think of my boys being abused in anyway. Sure I yell once in a while, but things get better a week or two after he leaves for work. The last few days has been pretty good. I haven't had to yell once at the kids for anything. They've listened to me and done everything i've asked them to do.
The question is do I say somthing about it to my husband while he's away or wait till he comes home in 5 weeks? It really has me really bothered. I WILL NOT stay with a man who punishes the kids in a manner like that. I also know he has a favorite child out of the two. I don't have one at all, I love my boys equally. Our oldest kind of gets the short end of the stick with him. He gets yelled at more, or punished more severely than our youngest. He actually doesn't get punished half of what his brother does when my husband has hand in it.
I can't stand thinking that he's behaving this way with our kids. I see the difference in treatment and have tried talking to him about it, but he gets all defensive and hateful with me about it.
