I'm just going to say it.....I've had it with the way hubby treats difficult child!!!!!!! I'm at wits end. I understand that difficult child can be trying sometimes. Actually quite a bit. But....it's almost all social. He becomes impatient easily. we went to a Christmas Party saturday. difficult child went upstairs with the other kids (to play by himself). Dinnertime I had to drag him downstairs. He had to wait in line. He began complaining...then he wasn't hungry. I expected it...it didn't bother me. Oh...no....hubby starts huffing and tapping his foot. So me and difficult child gets out of line and goes in the living room while everyone else eats. Then yesterday hubby was gone all day. It was just me & difficult child at home. He comes home and picks & complains the entire night about difficult child. Quit making that noise, quit doing that.... I finally told him to stop it....difficult child can't help it. Maybe he should go to the doctor next time with me to see & understand that he can't help it. Hubby just yells out No!!!! He has this attitude that he knows everything and I'm supposed to deal with everything to do with difficult child. he's supposed to be quiet & never get on his nerves. Oh...and after everything he doesn't do for me...help with the house, difficult child, etc. He still expects me to perform my wifely duties...(never mind I'm to the point of wanting to punch him in the face....really....) when he wants it. He refuses counciling....I really am to the point of taking my child and moving in with my parents. talking to him does no good....he'll do better for maybe 2 days. I'm always left wondering if he resents "our" child because he is the spawn of my ex-hubby or because he's so different. He adopted him when he was little....my ex wasn't in his life much... He won't read any books about autism, ADD, Asperger's....nothing. He won't go to any of the appointments. He won't do anything...except criticise..... Any ideas....PLEASE.....I know I'm venting here but I've really had it!!!!!!!
