Default State of Kansas Child Endangerment?

In the state of Kansas, is a father who breaks things out of anger with a 2 year old in the house (but not in the same room) liable for Child endangerment. If yes, am I also at fault if I do not call the police. He has a history of criminal damage to property, but has not damaged the rental thus far. Is it still a case of criminal damage to property and domestic abuse since he's been throwing things and breaking them and slamming his fist into his desk that I bought him and breaking it?

This may amount to child endangerment. Because this activities may not only affect the child physically but also it may mentally affect the child.

The best thing to do whenever you feel a child might be in danger is to report your concerns to children's services

No, it's not child endangerment. It's also not domestic violence.

Unless there is direct physical assault, domestic violence is not happening.

Unless the child is place in direct harm, child endangerment is not happening.

Breaking material possession you bought him does not qualify as domestic violence. Those objects are not appendages of you.

That's a great way to bring scrutiny onto the parent who's concerned and possibly have the child taken away. Bad advice.

In the OP's case, the best thing to do is get out of the living situation and take the child with her. Involving child protective services is a bad idea.
