I think my boyfriend is too rough with my son

I have been with my boyfriend for a little over 2 years now. We live together and just a baby (he's two months) but I also have a 4 1/2 yr old son from a previous relationship. We think my 4 yr old may have ADHD. He's very hard to handle sometimes. I just went back to work about 3 weeks ago and I'm only working part time.my older son goes with his dad on the weekends so my boyfriend only has to watch him one day a week while I'm at work. We are all having a hard time adjusting to the new baby and I think my bf is taking out on my 4 y.o. son. Last week I found strange marks on his shoulder. My bf said he didn't know how it happened (maybe at his dad's). And tonight I found a round bruise on his chest while I was giving him a shower. My bf watched the kids yesterday while I was at work.I have seen my bf poke his chest before when he was mad at him. When I'm home, my bf will grab his shirt or his arm and yell in his face. We have fought about it several times that I think he's too rough with my son. I don't know what to do

I'm with Gena. It's your responsibility to protect your children and if you even suspect your boyfriend of laying 1 finger on your son then you need to stop it now!
Find someone else to watch your children while you are at work and if your BF asks, tell him that he can't be trusted at the moment. If he gets defensive and upset then get him to leave.
Your children don't deserve to be abused while you are at work.

I would tell him to stop the way he handles your son or else he must leave! I wouldnt let him look after the children if they have bruises afterwards. If he already acts like that infront of you (pulling tshirt,yelling) how do you think he handles him when you are not around. Its a tough situation but he must really stop!
