Loved this post from Miriam Manela at Thrive Occupational Therapy. See if you can use any of her suggestions.

Facial expression 300It’s a fact: Even a mom who has tons of energy can appear tortoise-like when compared to her child.

Imagine your nine-year old is kicking the furniture—hard.

Or your five year-old is riding his tricycle around the living room for the nineteenth time in a row (careening off the newly-painted walls).

Or your toddler is shrieking in glee as she flings her spaghetti everywhere.

These are the times you long to declare nap-time—but you know your child’s not going to agree without major resistance. That’s why it’s a life-saver to have on hand a repertoire of energy-busting techniques that help meet and satiate your child’s need to expend emotional and physical energy (while not depleting your own).
