Only you can decide but ask yourself what, if anything, you're getting out of this relationship. It doesnt sound like you're getting much other than uncertainty, unreliability and a steady erosion of your self-esteem.

Tell him to go to his parents, never mind him, you need some space then have a think about what you want! Wouldn't give up your job without exploring other options first though, a job gives you a sense of respect and self worth and outside adult contact which you will need without a partner at home. Speak to the jobcentre or social security people explain your childcare issues and see if they can help with funding for after school care etc. Good luck.

You sound really unhappy and I am not surprised, given the way he is messing you about. You don't say if you are married and what your financial situation is, but I suspect you are going to be happier without him than with him and should work towards that.

Sorry should of said that we are not married I do feel so alone as my mum died 18 months ago and got no family close or friends that I can talk two really don't want to give up work but I only do 6 hours a week so not sure if job center can or will even help me

Might be worth asking them anyway or perhaps looking for more hours or another job with hours that fit in with nursery/school. You don't sound happy at all and he sounds like he is just thinking about himself and what he wants. You can go to relate on your own for counselling to help you see the issues and work through why you are letting him treat you like that. That may make you strong enough to decide what is best for you and your children.
