Good evening ma,
I am sorry to bother you so late but I need your advice as I cannot sleep. As you know,my husband and I have not been in a good place for some time now. I thank you for all the words of encouragement that you have been giving me since all this time. But it appears that things are not getting better.
Maybe its because my husband is not as educated because nothing I say or try to do seems to please him. We quarrel and fight all the time and now my biggest worry now is that,it is beginning to affect my son. For the past one year,I see that my son has changed and he has become a bully in school.
Maybe because he has seen his father and I fight so much. The other day he beat his sister. I was so angry that I beat him and inflicted some injuries on him. Of course,that annoyed my husband and he reported me to everyone who cared to listen that I am a bad mother.
Now,my son has been punished in school severally for his behavior. He fights in school. He does not listen to me when I try to correct him. He knows his father will not take any action against him and so he keeps pushing my buttons. I know that its the situation with my husband that has caused my son to change but I cannot help it.
His sister,is not like that,I see that his sister looks up to me like role model. I hope I can live up to the expectation. I have done everything humanly possible to make peace with my husband,just for peace to reign.
Every day,my marriage is like its one issue or the other. Now,for the sake of my child,I am thinking of leaving this marriage as I do not want my children to grow up in this hostile environment. My issue now is that,I do not have any job or money to be on my own. But to keep living with this man is terrible.
Secondly,I am thinking of sending the boy to school in the boarding school. Next term,he will be going to secondary school. Do you think that could help him be a better boy? I am just at loss for what to do. His father does not want peace,he does not care what he is doing to me or our children.
I need help..I am loosing it….
