I found that teaching him 'first car, then dinner' or 'first teeth, then dvd' helps. It took ages for him to get it, but now it does make him calmer.

Still looking for the answer to that myself!

I agree with sickof, sometimes I think a focus is needed. Ds is often like this when he gets in from school or being out somewhere. I have to admit it is the one thing that is guaranteed to wind me up more than anything so don't do what I do which is shout "stop doing that ds" and swear under my breath but I have found it helps to physically hold him, and give him a clear activity to do. Or even tv.

I used to list three things we would do when we got home. I'd hold her face gently in mine, state what was going to happen and then make her repeat it back. So, coat, cbeebies, tea. Then remind her on the way home, and once in the door.
Now, it's coat, Gilmour girls and tea!
