Husband with anger problems bit his child and left a mark.

Unreasonable?

Elfontheedge Tue 26-Jul-16 17:55:13

You need to ask? Of course it bloody is!

Sirzy Tue 26-Jul-16 17:55:23

It concerns me you even need to ask if that's unreasonable to be honest.

I would hope 'husband' is now living well away from child.

FuzzyOwl Tue 26-Jul-16 17:55:24

You even have to ask?

Massive safeguarding issue, see your GP.

TheUnsullied Tue 26-Jul-16 17:56:23

Unreasonable? It's assault. And if it were my child and I saw him do it, he'd be lucky to escape the situation without being assaulted himself.

No, sounds perfectly reasonable hmm

Why do you actually have to ask?!

AnchorDownDeepBreath Tue 26-Jul-16 17:58:10

It's assault, and probably child abuse. If anyone else sees the bite, he'll have some explaining to do.

Take the child to the GP, make sure he's alright. Report the incident so that your judgement is not questioned too. If he is non-resident, stop his access to the children (lawfully!). If he is resident, make him not resident.

Once violence reaches this level, it's too late to save it.

Fucking hell I need help.

It's not unreasonable, it's illegal. Do you know this child? Help them ASAP and get them away from this man.

Safeguarding issue.its physical abuse
Unpredictable,violent and volatile behaviour to child is wholly unacceptable
Are you and the child safe?does he have access to other children
What are you going to do?
Has child been been checked/treated?
There is physical and psychological impact to consider

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Tue 26-Jul-16 18:04:47

He bit his child in anger? Or he has anger issues and bit his child in a poor attempt to stop the child biting other people?

JuanTime Tue 26-Jul-16 18:05:40

If safe to do so report as crime to police,get a crime number
Do you have an existing worker with local authority?if so contact them
Do you need a safe place to stay?if so tell police and local authority

GloGirl Tue 26-Jul-16 18:08:47

Are you ok?

NeedACleverNN Tue 26-Jul-16 18:15:20

Why did he bite his child? How old is this child? Are you ok and safe at the moment?

No it's not ok.

Buggers Tue 26-Jul-16 18:21:02

Is this an account hack?!

NeedACleverNN Tue 26-Jul-16 18:26:08

I doubt it Buggers

I'm pretty sure OP has said her dh has been violent before. I could be mixing her up with another poster but I don't think so

Buggers Tue 26-Jul-16 18:30:15

Seriously? Poor child.

RedHareWithBlondeHair Tue 26-Jul-16 18:31:53

If you need to even ask then yes, you're right you are in dire need of help. That isn't in the realms of unreasonableness - it's down right abuse.

Missgraeme Tue 26-Jul-16 18:33:29

Unless u are a family of dogs that's child abuse in my mind!

NerrSnerr Tue 26-Jul-16 18:34:02

The child needs to see the GP tomorrow and you need to tell the truth about what happened. You then need to think how to keep your child/ren safe in the future, whether that's with help through women's aid, social services etc.

ChicRock Tue 26-Jul-16 18:34:15

Wtf? Really?

WiMoChi Tue 26-Jul-16 18:37:59

The child was bit angrily because the father was bit? I need to know if this is the same as assault?

NeedACleverNN Tue 26-Jul-16 18:41:28

Yes!

One is a child and one is an adult!

ChicRock Tue 26-Jul-16 18:41:36

Ah look at you, already trying to find excuses for him biting a child and leaving a mark. Bloody disgraceful.
