I am very worried about my son. He is very attached to his father and always tries to follow him. His father is very short tempered and hits the child whenever he feels that our son is doing something wrong. If I try to intervene then my husband simply tells that this is how he has grown up and he is going to treat his son in the same manner. Moreover he does not spend time with us at all only if we go out with him for shopping or a long drive then we are together. Recently I am following that my son is speaking in the same manner as his father with me. When I said this to my husband he is not ready to listen to me. At times I am in a fix and scared to think that my son would also grow up like him. What should I do now, kindly suggest.

Oh this is indeed a trying situation for you. Since he will not come to an understanding on this, you will have to work on building your rapport and communication with your son. Include little outings or walks where you can him can just talk. Boys do not like face to face talks. So walking side by side or while driving you can converse. Do not nag or stress. Rather aim on having a good time or fun time. Play games with him. Read out stories. Try to spend as much quality time just building your love and rapport. Slowly your values and habits also will find place. As he grows he will also realise. Be supportive and patient. Guide him to express himself. Now he will only know aggression. Through stories you can motivate him. Enroll him for martial art so that his aggression can be channelised. By remaining calm and gentle you will be setting a great example.
