Its really hard to comment with so little information available, such as the children's ages. Younger children may be over-influenced themselves by the abuser. But they're less important right now --- your immediate task is to call POWA and work with them and similarly experienced counsellors, to plan a safe withdrawal from this situation of abuse, and to start a new, safe and happier life for yourself ; maybe, if apt, applying for a court order forbidding him from approaching or harrassing you in any way
