Hi there- Terribly sorry to hear about your situation. It sounds like you did what you could to try to help her. Now your priority should be on what you can do to help your son and yourself. I am concerned that she has a daycare in her home and that you say she is verbally abusive and has a history of throwing things, etc. I would recommend calling to licensing agency (assuming she is a licensed day care provider) in order to report these things. I would also call the dept of child services in your state to report these abuses (toward your son and possibly the other children). I would do what I could also to notify the other children's parents in the day care. Since you are already in the process of getting a divorce, you are clearly taking child custody up with the legal system already. So that's good. Also important, keep an open relationship with your child (assuming he is old enough) and ask him about what goes on when he is with her. You want him to feel comfortable talking to you so that if things do happen, he will know he can speak with you. (hopefully this will not be the case of course). I would definitely call child services though in order for them to investigate her. I hope this helps you. Good luck to you.

Hi sweetie i found your answer very general and have all ready did what you suggested.
so no i did not fined your answer help full in any part of my situation. For your info i found out that the only thing i can do as a MAN calling and making a report of this is that yes i can report it they don't take it to serious when it is coming from a man DEVORCING HIS
WIFE because people do weird stuff. They told me that they will do a surprise visit and check everything. so until she leaves the country with my son or hits him it mostly just goes unnoticed. I called the lic. board and she had talked to them yesterday and were told that i would be calling and just making stuff up and it was unfounded because she is the person with the actual lic in her name. i don't even know if they put in on paper since she has been dealing with them for a while and has a standing report they pretty much believe her. I am not sure if they realize that the FBI back round check would not pick up any thing she may have did in EGYEPT because they don't give record like that to the us for small stuff.so that is what i know and i fined being a concerned father that their is no help for men at all because of the stereo typical abuser is a man i was a battered husband for 4 years and when i went to get help and file a report at the police station there were some uniformed officers their that over heard me telling the person and they were leafing that i man would report that his wife beats him. thank god for counseling,
