My dad has a bad temper and always, always ruins get togethers because we have to walk on egg shells around him hoping he wont blast out verbally and hurt someone's feelings! I took my kids away for good because I can't handle seeing them getting screamed at verbally for doing things kids do. He blasts out in a rage fit over little things like spilled water, kids making noises or a dog walking by. I think he needs help and to grow up and why should I subject my kids to this verbal abuse???

Thank you Express 10, no we will not be subjecting our kids to this any more. It is not healthy for my kids and I stand up for my kids but get so angry at him, and that is not a good influence
I agree also skperdon, my husband and I cannot subject our kids to this. It is obvious my dad need prayer and help.
Unfortunately I did go through that but I will not subject my children to it. Seriously it can't be normal behavior. Thank you for your concern..
I agree it is easier and best for people to just stay away from people like that. Kids should not be subjected to that verbal abuse.
Dad was in a bad car wreck when I was six but it seems to have gotten worse with time. I agree, we are praying my dad gets the help he needs from this depression anger anxiety or whatever it is he has.
You are very welcome. You have definitely done the right thing! :)
