HI C,
Yes, this is abusive behavior and it will get worse over time. It is definitely not healthy for your son to be living in this environment. He will learn that it is okay to abuse power against others as well as feel guilty and helpless at not being able to help you.

Likely you can think of good things about your boyfriend, however, no one has the right to treat you that way. You need to establish BOUNDARIES clearly and if someone crosses those boundries and hurts you, it is so wise to see help and get away from it.

I admire you for writing and asking. YOU are not at fault for this. Check online for websites that talk about Domestic Violence. They will have info you need to know.

Also, please stay in touch. It is important in an abusive situation to have a support system - people who care and can help. Wishing you and your son happiness and peace.
