We are totally new to my partner working shifts. Two of my kids are school age, the youngest is 4. The kids and I need to be up by 7.30am but dad only gets home at 3am (this will be different every week) and needs to sleep. I'm struggling to keep them quiet. I have all the doors closed but one of my older kids is on the autism spectrum and although understands that he needs to be quieter than usual, he forgets.
I'd like to hear what others do. What should I be doing?
I should mention that DH hasn't complained, I just worry that he isn't getting enough proper sleep and driving for 45 minutes at 3am is a scary thought when I know he's tired.
