Since he can change in the past, I’ll give him benefit of the doubt. Just be clear that his behaviour is not acceptable especially for the sake of your baby. Remind him the fact that he can be just like his father and the baby to be like him, and howw wrong that is. Yes, therapy is a must.
Good luck beee!!

Thanks for all the input!
Last night when he came home from work he came To me and told me that we need to talk. He told me that he is struggling and he can feel himself becoming his father. He doesn’t want to be like this around me or our son and he wants to do something to fix this. Sadly he can’t leave his job right now. I agree that he kind of needs to suck it up.. we all work jobs that are totally stressful at one point or another, and it isn’t fair how he’s been acting about it. I sympathize as much as I can though because obviously this is something that torments him.
He agreed that therapy is a must. He wants to have therapy to address the anger, and he wants couples therapy so that any issues that have arisen as a result of his temper can be addressed now.
He came to me on in his own and he is willing to do something about that. I’m incredibly hopeful that this willingness of his to change will help while he’s in therapy and I absolutlry Plan to stand by his side.
With luck his attitude will improve and these issues will diminish.
