My boyfriend and I have been together for 4 years now, we have a 6 month old daughter, ever since she was born, my boyfriend has been unusually angry at me over everything and I don't know why. I am scared because our daughter had gotten shots the other day and he was frustrated with the baby and was pulling her legs and hurting where she had gotten them, sometimes he smacks her hands and makes her cry, or spanks her bottom, too hard, and I tell him to stop, but he doesn't listen. He says she needs to learn discipline but she is only 6 months old, like a 6 month old knows what is right and wrong. I don't know why he is doing this, he has never been like this before. I don't know what happened, or what to say to him.

seek help

Hi his response is normal, here is how come. Parents will usually behave based on the feelings they experienced as a child. Seen this many times over the years as a counselor.

the question is what school do we as parents go to learn low to parent??
He really needs counseling to work out his feelings. You're right the baby is just being a baby. No reasoning abilities and if you observe your husband he is also exhibiting the same behavior as a small child (no reasoning abilities), justifications for his behavior yes.
If he is inflicting bodily harm then I agree for your safety and the child?s, you have the responsibility as a parent to protect that child no matter how much you love and care for your boy friend.
Your feelings are very much involved. Get hold of Family services and seek help they are there to help and protect, which is what you need NOW!

Get the heck out of there and don't go back. He's abusing your kid. It would be good if he gets help for anger management and parenting issues. But I wouldn't count on it.
