My son's father is emotionally abusive. When I know he is in a bad mood I let my son know so he can watch his mouth or stay in his room. Don't want to make dad mad. I recently decided that I am going to leave because this is not the life I want to live anymore nor does my son deserve to live like this. Since I have been withdrawing from my boyfriend he has started to be nice. Actually trying to teach our son how to work on cars. I know it is a ploy, but how do I get my son to see it for what it is? Time will tell? My boyfriend has bipolar I and has anxiety. Living with him is an emotional roller coaster. It is double for our son cause I am now battling depression. I am staying strong for our son, but sometimes I feel as thou I have let him down. How to I get him to accept that this is the right decision for us and that we will be better off without having to walk on egg shells?
