I have 5 children, 4 of them with Asperger's. All are strong willed and have their own idea about how things "should" work. They all have different schedules (make by them) all have to have their own way.
How do I get them on the same page so I don't continue to loose my sanity? I'm overwhelmed trying to meet all their different "needs" I want breakfast to be at 7 am, not 5 am for one kid and it Must be oatmeal, 6 am for another cause it's on the schedule they made and 8 am for another, etc.
This am a kid got it stuck in her head that she "had" to mix cheese and mayo together and add it to rice and need my help even though I'm trying to do 5 other things at the same time. I can't just drop everything everytime someone wants something. But no one will follow a schedule I set up to help.
Is there any way to get 4 very different Asperger's kids to follow the same page so mom can have some peace?
Thanks for listening
