I am almost all set to move out of the home away from the abusive situation from the husband. Off late its getting worser and worser to the extent that he yells and tries to control the kid too all the time of not letting her even play freely around the house. Like for ex, if she is playing with a 10cent coin on the kitchen table while talking to me about her day in school, he tells her to stop that since it will stratch the table!!
I signed an apartment lease, started packing, told my boss about my situation and all that. From my view, I am happy to move on and breathe freely. BUT, I am also taking my 5yr old kid with me to the new apt. and she seems confused and not so excited about all this. Maybe since I started packing her room first....not sure. She says she does not want to leave her home, her room, her stuff and also tells me that afterall the dad is not that bad.
I have tried talking to her excitedly about our new home and how her dad can still come and visit her. But she somehow is not very excited and seeing her like this, I feel sad and depressed and go in my own loops of why this is happening to me, what wrong have I done etc etc.
Do you ladies have any ideas and suggestions on how to make this tough transistion time easier for the kid and for me?
