Our expert says:
I consider it to be active child abuse whenever a parent does this ( and what cowardice as well as selfishness it is to use kids as surrogates to fight a parent's battles with their spouse ).
Speak calmly but clearly to your husband, making it clear that you would prefer the separation and divorce to be less unpleasant, and do not want to try to turn the child against him, but want him to recognize that this is bad for the child. I wonder if you spent a couple of weks with your family, whether he and the child might find that life together wasn't as much fun as they perhaps imagine ?
