Our expert says:
This is an awful thing for any father to do. It sounds like a temper tantrum on his part, and a wicked sense of using the kids and their upset to pressurize or get back at you - NEVER justifiable. Even if what he said was true, and I very much doubt that, telling it to the kids, and especially in that way, is simpl cruel.
Speak calmly to the kids at a suitable time, and re-assure them that none of that was true, that you do indeed love them very much and intend to always love them, and that daddy was cross with mommny and saying those things to upset you.
This sounds like an abusive relationship. LOok for support from others, and perhaps advice from POWA or some similar group
