I have 2 autistic children now aged 7 and 14 and as they have grown older I thought I could manage but are finding life extremely hard which in affect has put a massive strain on my relationship with my wife!!!!!!!! the bottom line is I act like I can cope but CANT!!!! I struggle and doubt myself as a parent as I get nervous when around the children and then shut off most probably looking like I don't care!!! is there any advice, courses or anything that I can use to help me on dealing with parenting as I should have admitted years ago that I need advice and help!!!!
I am sorry to read you and your wife are separated. I am in a similar situation with my husband. Please try not to beat yourself up. We can't change the past but we can make the future better. Admitting you need some help is a really good start. There is certainly no shame in seeking support in fact it takes a fair bit of courage.
Best wishes and good luck
