What are the hot-spots in the day for you and your family (for bad behaviour, distress or anxiety from your DD child)?

How do you deal with them?

Right after school for the older two, I try to plan quiet activities or movies during that time. For my youngest its right before nap and bed so we read a book or cuddle.

Usually it's that transition time around 4pm when I am leaving for work and my husband is just coming home. Jonesy cries or starts to tantrum when Sean comes in because he knows it means I'm leaving. We just try to distract him with a toy or his favorite book and he usually settles in a few minutes.

After supper is our rough patch, especially for Danny but partially for our 5 year old as well. He's tired, but not tired enough to sleep, and he either amps up a LOT (running, wrestling, standing on his head, and generally getting really stimmy) or his behavior takes a major dive. We often let him have computer/electronics time for a couple hours in the evening, since it seems to give him input he needs without him bouncing off the walls, and helps settle and organize him.

Homework time.. her eyes are tired after a long day and they really bother her, so she gets very stimmy and melts down. We just do as much as we can before the hard times hit and then quit.
