My hubby works like a dog to provide for us. Totally comendable and much appreciated. But.............i cant suggest, correct, hint at or even stay quiet when he is in a bad mood. He places demands on our nonverbal severe autistic daughter that she can't meet. As well as me too. He is emotionally unavailable, he is passive agressive. He won't even kiss me or hug me.he is arguing as we speak. I must stay quiet to minimize things. I am sick of this.

Hugs mama...I'm sorry to hear this!  How often is he in a bad mood?  Is he just tired from working a lot?  Not that it's an excuse or anything.  I would have a serious conversation with him about this...big hugs!

I agree, try counseling. The best outcome for your daughter is going to be patience and support from both parents or at least a safe, peaceful environment. It's hard enough to meet the needs of our children and households; so to add fear and aggression in to the equation, only makes it worse. Hugs and prayers momma!!!

My ex was the same way but as each of our 8 children came along he got worse. He was in the Navy and we did go to counciling, but he also manipulated the whole thing also. What was even worse was he would get mad at me after the counciling and tell me i am the one who is at fault. I would get chewed out from one side to the other. Nothing was ever his fault. We have been divorced for over 14 years now and to him everything is still all my fault.  Some of our kids won't even talk to him and for the ones who do they tell him to not even bring up the past or they will either hang up or won't talk to him for awhile.
