I am a 43-year-old housewife with five children and a husband who had a stroke last year. He physically abused our children over the years before his stroke, and now that he cannot punch them anymore, he has turned to verbally abusing us. He is good to his friends and his relatives, but to me and our children, he is our worst nightmare. Sometimes we wish he would just die. When my boys were little I would invite him to do family activities with us, but he always had an excuse and would even say he had better things to do. Now he seems to be making up for lost time and wants to be with his children, but they don’t want to be with him anymore.
