Advice, possibly quitting work
hi I have a recently diagnosed 17 year old, he hardly leaves the house and just sits in his room, my query is I work 30 hours a week this appears to be increasing each week and I’m struggling with childcare for my younger child as my 17 year old looks after him. I’m thinking about giving up work completely to care for my autistic 17 year old as I feel he is needing me more and more each day, also to take the pressure off him, will I be entitled to do this and how would I get the ball rolling? I just don’t know what else to do, I’ve always worked but as a single mum it’s becoming more and more difficult to arrange childcare, my 17 year old says he doesn’t mind babysitting but I feel it’s becoming too much for him, any advice on this would be great.
