If my husband treated me as my difficult child, I would leave him. I may have to leave both of them because I'm not sure I can do this any longer. difficult child is on spring break and the fight is on. He has kicked me, refused any request, told me to "shut up", and made the far**** sound toward me, not to mention the faces and mimic-ing. I've just had my fill. If I(we) wasn't going on a trip tomorrow to our daughter's, I think I'd have to leave...at least for a while. HOW does anyone live with the disrespect?? I don't care if he can't help it....ok, I believe the initial blurt, he can't help (impulsiveness), but with repeated warnings, why doesn't he get it and *S*T*O*P*???? Sorry...needed to vent.
