O.K. I need you guys to chime in. One of my issues with my stbx is his lack of involvement. We have 3 kids. Our 8 year old son has Asberger's (autism), and our 6 year old son has more sever autism & ADHD, then we have a 2 1/2 year old daughter who thinks she's 16. He never helps get them ready when we go somewhere. He rarely spends time with them. When he gets home from work he hits the couch and I serve meals to him and the kids while he watches t.v. He's never helped w/ bathtime or potty training and has rarely changed a diaper. Am I expecting too much? I know I've been a stay-at-home for the most part, and so most of this is my "job." But, couldn't he help a little more? Of course, then there's the fact that he gets so frustrated when he does interract with them, that they've all begun to avoid him. What are your thoughts?
