** TRIGGER WARNING** My husband and I got into a fight and I was told to file a restraining order: Advice?

I’ve been married for four years, and it’s been a toxic relationship, and we have a two-year-old son. A few nights ago, we got into a fight, and it became physical, and he was threatening to kill all my family members and me. The fight started because I came home from work and my son was on the toilet because my husband was trying to get him to go to the bathroom and my son was on the toilet for a couple of minutes just crying, and I said to my husband maybe he doesn’t need to poop. My husband got mad at me for this, and I yelled at him, and that pissed him off, and when I went to get my son of the toilet, he shoved me out of the way with his shoulder. I took my son after that and put him in our bedroom with the tv on and shut the door, and went into the living room to talk to my husband.

My daughter was sexually assaulted in class and the school isn’t doing anything about it: Help?

I need some help.. my five year old daughter was sexually assaulted by another classmate at school this week. The school is making light of it because the kid that did it is five, as well. I just want to know what other people think about it. Am I crazy for wanting him to be held accountable for his actions and not just get a slap on the wrist? I do understand he could be going through certain circumstances at home, but I just feel like it should just be brushed under the rug because he is 5. If this situation isn’t tough enough already, I’m six months pregnant as well, so my emotions are going crazy, and the help and counseling isn’t coming quick enough for my daughter and myself.
