In the past when I try to talk to him about his anger, he always says he doesn't know what to do or that when he gets mad, he can't think and just "acts" (there have been other issues with his anger lately, but this was the most recent straw to break the camel's back, so to speak, as he's never laid a finger on either of us).
He was in anger management therapy shortly after DS was born and they taught him techniques to deal with his anger, but it seems like everything he learned has been forgotten as he just can't deal lately. He didn't share with me what he learned so I can't remind him. When I suggest he go back, he makes excuses.
His anger has been having such a negative impact on our household, I'm ready to tell him he has to go back to therapy or else (I haven't figured out the "or else" as I don't want to make empty threats). I'm not one for ultimatums, but something has to change. Is he's under stress, who he was seeing was also a counsellor and he can deal with that too. As far as I know, things are going pretty good for him, but if he don't tell me, I don't know.
