Quoting supercalifragilisticxpali:" long story short, my son is 4 years old now and his father treated me like smurf since the day I got pregnant. ... [snip!] ... he loves him..... idk, any opinions would be appreciated. thanks ladies. ETA; maybe the story wasn't so short, lol sorry"
I think you're doing the right thing. Until he gets help, that's not a safe environment for your son. I had a POS father like that who did really terrible things to my mom & then eventually to me. I think it's normal to cry about it, because it is a hard decision to make, but I think you're right in your decision.
