Ending the year a bit lost and was wondering if anyone could offer some constructive advice. We've just returned from our family holiday and once the kids were asleep, the flood gates opened after I couldn't keep things bottled up anymore. I didn't want to confront my husband while on holiday for the kids sake. My husband has been struggling with managing his temper (mostly since the kids have been born) and has hugely over the top anger reactions to small situations. Not to the point of hurting anyone or anything physically, but it doesn't help my mental state or those of my kids. And I worry about what if it does get to the point of being physical. I worry for my kids. My eldest has issues already where he reacts angrily when something doesn't go his way or when he experiences frustration. My youngest (not even 2 yet) goes around hitting his brother and hits us. We are firm about this being a definite NO behavior, but it's not helping. We try to coach both kids on better ways to handle their emotions and that hurting others is not on. Last night I talked to my husband about everything I've kept bottled up (note, this is not the first time). I am always just trying to keep the peace so that the kids don't do something to set dad off. It's a massive stress for me and I really can't take these anger outbursts anymore. I love my husband and the kids love him too, but I just don't know what to do anymore. All I know is this can't go on like this anymore. My kids and I deserve happiness and love, not stress and anxiety. Something needs to change, but where do I/we start?
