Well my DS has ASD, and I'm struggling to find activities to do that actually interest him. He has daycare 1 day a week and Kindy 2 days, so that leaves him here 4 days of the week. He loves the Xbox, and I really need to over exaggerate the love part. His hooked, the first thing in the morning when he wakes he wants it, til its bedtime at night. I tend to want to be a bit more strict when it comes to technology, I don't want him to rely on it for entertainment(unlike my lovely DP). It use to be when DP woke to DS he would chuck him on the Xbox and go back to sleep, I thankfully got him out of this awful habit. Now the rules are if he wants to be on it, he needs breakfast, toilet time, and brush his teeth, and cant be on it before 8am. I only want him on it maybe an hr. But there doesn't seem to much else to preoccupy him. And then my DP says he can have it when I clearly say no he cant(his excuse "he doesn't want to do anything else"). And DP will also let him on it dinner which can be 5-6pm, I'm sure this isn't good for his health and sleep. How can I get my DP to also be more compliant with whats best for DS? And what activities do you find your children to interested in?
