Really hard: It is almost overwhelmingly hard to have a child who has autism. Sometimes, it seems like the more you care, the harder it becomes to get through each day. The best suggestion I have is to find out if there is a parent's support group in your area. Ask a lot of questions. Don't believe that you have to do it all. Reach out to your school for help. Good luck.
