Its everyday that my recent turned three year old did or said something that some how disrespect his father (my husband) to where my husband screams, yells, shouts so loud at our son that it always makes cry out of being scared.... My husband will demand that our son say something but the yelling has our son so terrified that he just says "I don't know??" And then starts to cry.... I try to explain to my husband that our son is a child and yelling is extremely damaging to his growth.... Then I get yelled.... "My dad had our respect" is what he would yell at me... My husband has a no tolerance and no patience something that I hope he will gain as our marriage grows.... I can't tell our close circle of friends I am too embarrassed to let them know that we are this dysfunctional behind close doors.... I love having my friends drop off their kids every now and then for a play-date but I am scared if they know about my husbands screaming habits that may be the end of our play-dates... I tried to talk to my husband about parenting classes and he refuses saying "Its all my fault our son is so disrespectful" I don't know where to turn to at this point??? I wish someone could talk to him because I think he would listen to someone else.... Can anyone offer him advice???
