No problem, never easy. Good luck. Hopefully you have someone you could lean on for a while. I've heard some of the shelters are pretty decent until you get back on your feet. Don't let him know what your doing though- hide everything... Numbers, emails like this- he will make it impossible for you to go. Again, I'm sorry. Happens to a lot of people- poor or rich.

Unfortunately this falls this fits into the category of child abuse. If the child has marks on him he should be brought to a physician and they should be documented, so should your story. You will need a letter from the doctor stating that the child is at risk for further injury and should be taken out of harms way. The MD will be mandated to call the state, and you and your son will need a safe place to go.
Do not underestimate the harm that could befall your son. Your son is too small to defend himself and does not deserve to be punished by being beaten.

He doesn't seem to want to change. You have to protect your child and get out of that environment. Separate from your husband. Maybe he will see the light and change to keep his family together, but maybe he won't. Your child deserves better than that.

The other thing I found out is,he grew up in an abusive home so he is hot tempered.he gets angry so quickly over silly stuff and he does that with me also.And he thinks every prblm has to be fixed physically or by shouting.

It started when my son turned a year 2 months.i asked him and he said he is frustrated because he doesn't have a job so he gets irritated quickly by our son's crying and misbehaviour that's why he acts the way he does

Do not believe this will change unless you can find out what is tormenting him. Of course has this been going on only since your son was born? If so unless he gets professional help there is no use staying. And when you leave don't believe false promises, let him prove them. If you don't nothing will change.

Call the police and have that jerk removed from your home. Document the abuse, so he can't get custody.

Stop making excuses for staying. GET OUT. Go to a shelter with your kids.

That is very true Raye,I want to but have nowhere to go the salary am earning cannot cater for two of my boys.So have started saving so when I leave I have some money.And the worst part is he always says if we separate I won't leave with the kids so I guess will have to run away with them when he is out.
