I'm a single mom of 4, two adult kids and two 6 year olds. I left an emotionally and psychologically abuse relationship with my 6 year olds' father 4 years ago. We were never married, and there is no court order custody and/or child support/visitation order. He takes the kids every weekend. Not because we agreed, but because he decided and I didn't disagree. Things are usually OK with him, but recently the kids have been telling me that Daddy has not been so nice to them. Dad has an explosive temper. To be fair, if I'm pushed to my limit, I can get very loud as well, and say things I shouldn't say, but Dad's wick is MUCH shorter and MUCH more violent when he blows. He never actually abused me, physically. There was an incident where he put his hands on me and was forceful, and my head got banged against a window sill, but if I'm to be fair, he did not intend for the head banging to happen, and I suffered no injury, not even a bump. But it did smart for a few days if I touched the area.

There was a bad incident with the boys the last time they visited him, where he put his hands on them and used force enough as to cause them to fall. So now I am very scared for them. I would like to think that he will never do that again, but I'm unsure.

So I'm here, hoping to get some support from other moms who have been through a similar thing, as I walk through this and try to figure out what to do next for my kids. Right now, I'm afraid to confront him about what he did because I know he'll be mad at the boys for telling me and I'm fearful this will cause him to be worse to them, or worse to them about me. He's been saying some pretty disparaging things about me to them. I'm sure it will continue.

Thank you in advance for understanding any confusions I may have, tons of questions, and any cries for help I might express.
