Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hello- Thank you for asking the question. I have over 30 years of experience working with individuals, couples and families & am happy to reply.
I am sorry to hear about this.
The effects of verbal abuse on your son are as great as physical and in these situations, I would strongly suggest that you do what is necessary to protect your son from this verbal abuse.
This means, if necessary, reporting this to child protective services so that your ex is on notice that he is to refrain from this type of behavior.,
Ok, I have told my ex that if he continues to treat our son this way, I will not allow him to visit.
He then tries to bully me and says that I should not "threaten" him.
Under law, you have an obligation to protect your child first. You are the adult.
My mom has urged me to use the legal system
You should talk to your local Child Protective Services for advice.
Ok. I will do that.
Doe you need help with contact informaton?
If you give me your zip code I will link you to the proper agency
Ok, thank you. I was hoping I wouldn't have to take it this far, but I don't see any other option.
My zip code is 21054
My ex doesn't think he is being abusive...he believes his abuse is "discipline"
Okay. Hold just a second. Sounds like your ex is a Narcissistic Type:
I've done reading on this disorder in the past...he fits the profile.
Just last night he yelled at me and declared that our son "doesn't care about school" (not true) and that if our son doesn't care, he won't care. This was after he spent the weekend helping our son with his science project.
