My boyfriend of 8 months has a 5 year old from Hell. He has an explosive temper and will hit my 12 year old and anyone else in his way while he's on this rampage. My boyfriend practically kills this poor child just to get him to behave. It doesn't work because this is a daily thing, sometimes 2 or 3 times a day. The boy lives with his dad 90% of the time and his mom the other time. She has 4 other children, all from different dads, and doesn't pay any attention to them. I'm wondering if I should just run now because my son and I don't believe in violence, but this child is out of control.
