Last Friday my child's father was over my house chillin and everything.He had been drinking heavily so I allowed him to stay and sleep on the sofa.So my phone rings so I answered and held a 10 minute conversation with a good friend.So out of the blue my child's father jumped up and asked me what my problem was and why was my phone ringing that time of the night.He was all upset.The man actually started hitting me.It was very shocking and it really upset my children.My oldest daughter was yelling and my son was snapping kicking and hitting the walls.It was horrible.It was a nigtmare.I told him to get out.When he did leave he said the Kids saved me.Now that is a terrible thing to say.I was so upset and scared.He calls but his calls are really ignored right about now.On the voice mail He says he is sorry and its all his fault etc.He really dont want to accept the fact we are not together anymore.I really feel sad for women men who are abused I mean to get hit on is not a good feeling.He is not allowed in my house anymore.He has really violated and he messed up a good thing. A while back I started a discussion about abusive relationships here is the link if anyone cares to look http://www.mylot.com/w/discussions/1098373.aspx I have no respect for him anymore.He has never did this before.I still cant get over it.If anyone out there is being abused please do your best to leave its not worth it.

My friend, this is terrible! Please keep him away from you and the children! You are worth so much more than that. If he wishes to be involved, insist he go to counseling. If he's serious about being involved, he will go. You were so kind to even allow him in your home. Good luck and heed your own advice, friend. Jodigirl

I would be getting a restraining order against him. Make all visitation with the children set by appointment and you meet in a public place to exchange them between you. This is your home, not his, and for him to act the way he did and start hitting you , that was out of line. It was also out of line to say that the kids saved you. That was a threat. You have got to watch out for the safety of you and your children.

Yes definitely a threat.Saying that could mean anything...Thanks I think I may go ahead and get a restraining order even though he hasn't been making anymore threats but you never know what may be going on in his head.

You were right to kick him out and to not allow him back in. If it were me, and he attempts to force his way back in, then it is time for a restraining order. Sounds like he is an angry drunk, and should not be allowed around the kids or you if he can't get that under control.

I didn't want to get into my history, but I will say this. Once a guy hits you, he is quite able and likely to do it again. Go with your gut on this one. I let a guy come back once after an incident similar to yours. I bought into his apology. 9 months later, the same thing happened again, this time worse. So, that being said, keep yourself and your kids safe.

Where is He, I am going to beat his A$$, you don't deserve that and the kids should not see this kind of thing going on, especially Boys, it can make them want to do the same thing, because they will think that it is ok, alot of times when Kids, see their parents fight, they end up being abusive to their spouse or friend. I hope you talk to your Children about this and tell them it isn't right. Call the Police on him. You said he never hit you well once that do it the first time, if you don't nip it in the bud it will happen again. You said he was drinking, sounds like he needs help.

OH HELL NO!!! I learned a long time ago that when an ex shows up drunk, its best to NOT let him stick around...My ex did that to me when I was preg with our daughter and our son was only a yr old AND my 8 yr old neice was sleeping over...He decided to threaten me when I told him to leave, he informed that I needed to go up the street and call the cops (I didnt ahve a phone) and as soon as I was out the door he'd take off with our son and I'd never see him again!! Needless to say I didnt leave the house because when my ex was liquored up on whiskey like he was that night, he was VERY unpredictable...It wasnt a pretty scene at all.... I'm sorry you had to deal with this and even more sorry your kids were subjected to his bs behaviour! Stand your ground and DO NOT allow him in your home least of all when he's boozed up! That sort of behaviour is BEYOND unacceptable IMO....

warning you that you needed to call the police so he knew it was going to get ugly... thats real trifling.

You know already you did the right thing. Not allowing him back in your home is good. If he ever threatens you again, I would seriously consider forbidding him to see his child again as well. Your kids don't need to be exposed to that type of violence and threats. A restraining order would be best, you never know where some peoples minds are. I hope your kids are able to get over all of it soon. (((HUGS)))

I am so glad to read your not letting him back inside. He not only disrespected himself. he violated the home his child lives in. I am so glad your a very strong woman. So many find even that hard to do. You are showing your kids that your keeping them safe. I am so glad your not in any worse condition after that. He lost a good thing and you just keep moving on. His loss not yours :)

Even I as a man do support you in your fight against abuses against women. I have never hit my wife ever and I believe to be a man one should be able to love her partner or any women in particualr.

Hey. I read your first discussion and it is sad how people allow themselves to be abused by their man or their woman. You will need to report this and get a restraining order against him. Not all men or woman who do something stupid are bad people, sometimes it's bad judgement, but by him saying that the kids saved you, it sounds to me like he has done this before with someone else. I'm glad you let him know he should leave. He should also be able to see his child under supervision as he may use your child against you. Just a thought. I hope all will be well with you and your family. I'm happy you let us know about this, but also, if you have not already, you should let the police know about this immediately, as you would regret it if something were to happen and in court, they ask why you did not let the authorities know in advance. You take care of yourself. Peace.

Wow I wish all women were as strong as you. Thank you for taking a stand. I wrote this a few years ago as I myself would not accept this situation but so many do out of fear. Please let me share Battered and Bruised My body may be battered and bruised from you no more will I be abused Inside I'm strong What you did was wrong Today I'll start to sing my song Life you see still goes on. Freedom is the gift you've given me It took this event to make me really see Just how joyful freedom can be. You may have thought you loved me What you did in fact was control I've now taken my own direction It might be a winding road ahead But now I'm relaxed at night I now sleep in my bed. My body may be battered and bruised But bruises heal. Time to heal yourself I'm still your friend, I still care Release your bruised heart if you dare.

I was in an abusive relationship when I was young and pretty stupid. Fortunately we had no kids. It was tough to leave him but in the end it was all I could do to save myself. I agree that if anyone is in a n abusive relationship get out now!

I am so glad to hear that you are not only smart enough but strong enough to get him out of your life. It is not always an easy thing to do, especially when there are children involved. When people talk about abuse everyone immediately thinks of physical abuse but never give a thought to other types of abuse. Actually there are 13 different types of abuse with physical, mental, and emotional being the best known. My daughter was in an abusive realtionship and he never laid a hand on her. He was a control freak! He kept her at home, always pregnant, no car, no phone, and he called all the shots. Finally after 10 years my daughter left him and went to a women's shelter. She was very surprised to find out that what he was doing to her was considered abuse. Everyone needs to be treated like a human being and with respect. If not, it could be a form of abuse.

it is very very sad incident i must say. its very bad when one of the [person is so abusive and he just hits you nothing for. Its actually very very abusing. I think he behaved that way as he was drunk. i must say its my guess. But you have done right thing by allowing him not to enter the house anymore. its good to keep away from this person.
