My husband is a pretty good husband about half the time. The other half of the time hes consumed with anger and gives me and my kids (a five year old girl and a one year old girl) the silent treatment for about ten day periods. I feel so stressed out and literally sick over the negative silence in our home and I understand that the way hes acting isn't right. Tonight our daughter asked him "Do you like me Daddy?" and I started to realize that even though hes not physically abusing her or saying mean things to her he is abusing her. I really want to find some of the effects that the silent treatment can have on children but so far haven't been very successful in my research on this. I want to be able to open his eyes to the pain that hes causing me and our daughter(s) but I don't know what to say to him. When I have tried to talk to him he just says things like I hate you or other hurtful things. When the silent treatment ends he just comes back to normal and doesn't say hes sorry and doesn't even mention it. I really need some advice. Thanks

I was stalked relentlessly by a guy I had briefly dated. It turned...
