Okay, it is time to do homework again. My son rushed through it and got a lot of answers wrong. I tried to go over it with him, and my DH says "I don't know why you all have such a hard time with this, it is no wonder why!" So then he proceeds to yell at him for not understanding and not getting answers right. I get so freaking angry with him I want to send my son to his room and go slap off on my DH for doing it. He expects our son to understand something when he is being yelled at? Seriously!!! Okay so yes I also have a hard time with math, but I would like to try and help my son understand it so he does not have to struggle the way I do. My husband yelling at him over it infuritates me. He tells me he wants our son to understand he is being serious about this. So what yelling means you are serious, are you kidding me??!! I let it go, so he wouldn't fall out of a tree or something (he has his own tree business), but I am really angry. We do not have anyone to trust to watch our children so we can hash out our problems when the kids are not around so getting time to get into this without our kids suffering from watching us fight is imposssible. I am not sure if I should calm down a bit before talking to my DH about this, or if my "yelling at him lets him know I am serious" crap. Any advice on what I should do would be great. I am sorry to be venting a little here but this has been going on for awhile and everytime I say something about it he forgets or disregards it altogether and then we are right back in this place -- AGAIN. You know? I mean I feel like I am at a loss here.
