Dear MizzB

My wife likes to fight over simple things.

She verbally attacks me and this leads us into an argument, where I end up hitting her because she keeps pushing me into a corner as I am not a vocal person.

My 12-year-old daughter has to scream for us to stop, while my five-year-old son cries. I do not want my kids to grow up in this environment. Please help!

Dear Dad

Violence at home changes who children are and damages the bond between a parent and their kids.

This causes children to develop negative beliefs about relationships and themselves.

Some children even blame themselves for the abuse.

It is important for you and your wife to get professional help as soon as possible to learn better communication skills.
