I have been w/ my live in boyfriend for 4 yrs. I have two beautiful daughters whos father have walked out of their lives along with the face of this earth for 3 1/2yrs. My 6yr old olnly knows my bf and calls him daddy. He is a hard worker, but has his faults. There has been approx. 4 physical and too many to mention w/ the emotional abuse. He's playing with my head. I'm working on myself, and I see him getting scared that I'm getting stronger and that the therapist I'm seeing maybe suggesting that I leave him. I still hold a very big resentment for the times I was hit (which he says I deserved it) and the name calling. I do not know what to do. How do I know if something I say or do in the future will set him off from 6 mos. from now? If all is fine this week and I make the decession to have him move out, I'm scared of what it would do to my kids. I just need someone to talk to...a shoulder to cry on, someone who can tell me if this is even abuse?

She is now involved with...
