I have a 16 years old son who is very charming, loving and friendly, but also has ADHD. He is a bit slow in focus with his academics and behaves like a little younger than his age, that may be because he is the youngest in the family and gets much attention from me and his older sister.
However, there is a huge problem in the family which is ruining our family, and it is that my husband hates our son from the beginning. He is very rude with him, taunts him, calls him mental, nonsense, stupid, idiot and so on and the worst part is that he curses him, which my son takes very seriously and gets very upset.
Me and my daughter are very stressed with this situation that is getting worse day by day. I don’t talk with my husband, and fight with him every single time he says bad things and spanks for no reason. For this reason I have been sleeping away from him time by time since two years. We had lots of discussions and every time he promises that he will control his behaviour but it is not happening. He told me many times that he just hates our son and doesn’t like him. Otherwise, there is no problem in my married relationship, and I am happy with this guy if he is nice with our son. It is so disturbing that sometimes I think about divorcing him.
Is it possible to reconcile their relationship, and how would I go about doing so?
