School run struggles

Really exhausted today, Dd (6) is struggling so much at the moment. So many meltdowns and she's getting bigger and harder to keep safe. Today's school run she had a meltdown during which she was waving her scooter in the air trying to hit me, narrowly missing parked cars and small children. I only needed to get her 200m to the school gate and it's so difficult. We can park on site but she loves to scoot so without that as a hook I'll struggle to get her out the door and in to school at all. Just so tired of the daily fight. She'll want to go to her dance class later which was really hard to manage last week so I'm not looking forward to that. I just feel for her. She wants to do what everyone else does but just can't cope with it all and she's getting more aware when she misses out. Sorry for the negative post, today is just a tough day.

Is she ASD?

Thank you. Yes, she is. Just feels like things are getting harder at the moment. I think were still recovering from Christmas here. Fingers crossed we'll have a better day tomorrow.

@millyk ds is difficult like that. I swear everything is such a battle, getting him to and from school is also a nightmare thanks

Danni, it's exhausting isn't it. It makes the simplest things so hard. We just try to pace ourselves really which is fine, we just do what she can cope with. I just feel like we're starting to do less and less and I'm starting to worry about the future more and how we'll manage as she gets older.

Anyway, home and chilling today after swimming this morning which she coped with well so that's good. Hope you're having a good weekend too.

Do you have any strategies to help the school run Danni?
