I'm so frustrated!

My daughter ALWAYS seems to act up more closer to bedtime and it's so frustrating! I don't like having to ground her or put her to bed early but nothing else seems to help! Any suggestions?
She's 10 with SPD and PDD-NOS along with ADHD..

Sorry your having a hard time. When my son acts out I tell him I will take away his fav.toy if he continues to act out & It usually works without even having to take away the toy.

maybe try an earlier bedtime if she is acting out more because she is tired sooner now.  I give mine a full body massage and finish with lavender lotion on her face and she passes right out.  She is 4 though.

Maybe try melatonin before bed, it is a natural sleep aide, you can find it at any drug store with the vitamins. I give it to my son about an hour before bedtime and it helps him calm down and transition into bedtime. Is she tired, maybe an earlier bed time would help too, a hot bath before bed...?

She already goes to bed between 7 and 8 and she already takes melatonin.  No, I don't think so but I will try the earlier bedtime...thank you (:

I agree here also. Melatonin can be a wonderful help. Also, when Logan is acting up around bedtime, I put him to bed and he passes right out.
