Ok i have an 8 year old a 7 year old and a 5 year old. they all have medical conditions (ADHD) and take medicine for it. th always seem to get really wild right after dinner. i need some ideas on how to keep them calm for awhile after they eat. They won't sit still long enough to watch a movie or anything like that and their very aggressive. so we can't do anything like duck duck goose bcuz they get angry when their brothers touch them. I'm need some help with into keep them calm after dinner and so close to bedtime.Answer Question
Have you tried board or card games? My son has ADHD and tonight we played a War Snake game and a contractions Go Fish game. Of course I only have one so that helps a lot. Could your husband take one or two of them while you play with the other one?

I would separate them still and let them have their own quiet/down time while you spend some one on one time with them each individually. Try to offer different activities- puzzles, Legos, Lincoln Logs, reading, drawing/writing, etc.
