Me and my husband have been together for four years now and the whole time I have always had issues with him, but it is just getting worse now.. Lately it is to the point that I am actually scarred of him!! Just today he lunged at me and started doing what ever he could to hurt me, punching, smacking, biting, spitting, and pulling my hair out!! It was so bad that once I finally got him off of me I ran out and had to hide in my room with my baby and lock the door so he couldn't come in!! I am so scared, not only for me but for our three other children as well!! Next time I'm afraid I might have to call the cops to stop him before he actually really hurts one of us.. My husband on the other hand sees it completely different.. Every time something happens he already has his mind made up and has already chosen to defend his son no matter what!! Every time he says the same thing "He can't help it he has Downs, it's not his fault that he doesn't know what he is doing!!" I completely disagree!! I know the he knows right from wrong, but with my husband always defending him that way I think it is further disabling him by not holding him accountable for his own actions!!! Life is not always going to excuse everything he does just because he has a disability ya know! Am I being to harsh on the kid, or am I right and he can be held accountable for his actions??
