I think you are correct. My husband does not understand what it means to be a father to his son. He helps very little with his homework and I sign him up for everything extracurricular. He attends none of the practices and when my oldest son, who is now 18 played football he went to none of his games.
I was the one who attended every practice and game. His excuse was he worked too late. That was a lame excuse. He would have missed 20 min of his games!
I confront him about my youngest son and tell him he needs to control himself and he lashes out at me and says he needs descipline. He doesn't get that he is hurting him emotionally. That is why I was thinking of moving on so that maybe he would appreciate him more if he was not around so much.

Sounds like it will take your husband going through what mine did a year ago to get it in his head. He was raised getting spankings (that left marks) he never realized or understood the damage he did until he was told by a third party. If you cant reach him by talking to him (I had the same talk to my husband a month before our CPS thing happened and he told me the same thing) Presently things are great and nothing happened to the hubby except for him knowing how to parent the right way now because they make you go through parenting classes.
