You may need to take a tough stance here. You can speak with him about why he does these things, and make it clear to him that to you they are totally unacceptable and they do not make people strong, they hurt people. You may also need to make it clear that although you love him and want to provide for him that him being violent towards your family could lead to you asking him to leave the house.

It is your home and you have a right and a duty to protect your family.
