Per our OT we cut xbox/computer time waay back. He used to get an hour 5 days a week plus whatever he snuck in the mornings (don't judge please). Then I moved him to 1 hour 4 days a week, then 3 days (Fri, Sat, Sun) and finally I'm capping xbox at 45 minutes and trying to get down to 30min BUT he is up to 6 days again (long story and it's only for another 2 weeks and 30min starts tomorrow).
Here's the issue. I don't mind the 30min a day. I DO mind him waking up and sneaking around at 3am to play computer games which include an RPG game call Perfect World (similar to WoW) which dh leaves up on his computer and he can now get to things like abcmouse.com or nickjr.com via internet (very smart 5yr).
He literally wakes up at any given time at night to get up and play games. It used to be the ipad but the charge cord broke and we haven't replaced it BUT HE has replaced that with the computer. I send him outside as often as possible which 99% of the time results in "I'm bored" within 5minutes max. For instance yesterday he was up before 330am and didn't nap until forced around 3. He normally doesn't nap and never really did as a baby.
Any ideas on what else we can do? ADHD and ASD. I think his OT is running out of ideas and we don't have a behavioral therapist because he's booked until forever. I'm at a loss. I barely sleep between him and his 11 month old brother. Screen time seems to trigger a lot of meltdowns and outbursts so I have no idea how to cut back without issue or how to redirect, or get him to sleep. I'm just very frustrated.
