How do you help keep your adhd child from going into overload during the holidays? I know its expected they'll be really excited and s bot out of sorts but there are also major meltdowns im trying to make it as smooth as possible esp with my inl aws staying with us for thea next three weels. My son jumps on them and is rough with them a lot(wrestling despite repeated timeouts and being told to stop) and scratching...which he doesn't do normally.it makes me so anxious someones going to get hurt.

It's great that you are anticipating challenges that may arise with your son during the holidays.  Just being aware of it is a great step in the right direction!  This article has some good tips although they aren't related to the holidays, some of the ideas could still apply.  May you enjoy this special time with your son and extended family!

Thanks for the replies. He'll prob bebusy with toys. We keep him outside to play alot andlotsof praise when he listens and repeat directions too. So far he's been pretty good
Much smoother thanlast time they visited.

We stick with our house and my parents house. He has his "safe" places he goes, at both homes, to decompress if needed.  Lot's of sleep and little sugar.
