My name is Kimberly. I am a 32 single mother of 5 resulting from domestic violence. My soon to b ex husband is in jail and my children who are used to seeing their father everyday have seen him in 3 months. Me and my children were able to find a safe home and try to pick up the pieces. My oldest child is a 11 boy. He seems to being thru lots of learned behaviors from his father. He went from being a warm caring loving boy to now all he does is start arguments. My 9 yr old thinks the world hates him. My 6 yr old is constantly doing things that could potiently harm herself or other. My 3 yr old normally is a happy go lucky guy and now is very clingy and whiny. I also have a 6 month son who so far shows no side effects. I was married to my husband almost 8 years and he hit me almost off and all the time. I am seeking a divorce and fresh start. I am also going to school to b a probation officer.

the kids are probaly missing their father... even though he is not a good example or father... they are still going to miss him and need time to adjust to the huge shift that has happened in their life even though the shift is ulitmately for the better all they can see right now is the change not the improvement. set clear boundries... be consistant and lot's of understanding.

I'm so sorry for you and your family :( *hugs* At least you know your self worth and decided to get out before he severely hurt you or hurt one of the kids.. *applause* I'm sorry your kids are going thru those crazy mix of emotions too. Maybe try to talk to a Dr or pediatrician for some direction your family can go to for some help and/or counseling. I'll pray for you.

Sorry to hear about your problems with your soon to be ex. My advice to you is get your children into therapy immediately before something bad happens. I know of a family whose little boy went through a lot of problems and one day told his mother he wished he had a gun so he could shoot himself. I was taking the burden for the troubles on himself and this was very dangerous. Take your children including the 3 year old to therapy it will help and hopefully you will get the problem taken care of before it gets too deeply imbedded.
