Fed up of getting shouted at

Have just got a new job in another part of the country, and plan to rent a new place with children and take them with me, leaving P in the family home. In the meantime though - I am sick of his nasty angry outbursts. Twice today - once because I used some milk (i bought) to put on the children's cereal, when we were low on milk (he tried to snatch it out of my hand, had a big shout and then stormed off, and tonight, because my 18month old started crying when he saw me, as p was trying to put him to bed he shouted, 'this is why I hate parenting with you' all in front of the kids again. I feel ill with his agression towards me, interspersed with normality. Perhaps I'm oversensitive, but I've got constant swollen glands and tight chest. I think it's the stress.

It sounds horrible. Do you have a date for moving? I take it he doesn't know.

I don't have a date or a place to move to yet - but the job starts in a few months.Yes he knows, he wants to stay in our current home. I adore our current home. But cannot abide it with him anymore.

He sounds horrible. Do you actually want to stay in a relationship with him?

Er, no JoJo, that's why I'm moving and leaving him ^^

There's light at the end of the tunnel. Next time tell him, he should not raise his voice, or he'll keep his voice and take note of causing the DC to become distressed.

Then walk away from him. The less you communicate with him and keep whatever distance you can between you and him, the better.

His behaviour shows you're making the right decision.
