Does anyone else's little ones struggle with the clock changes? My four year old is really out of sorts. It took around six weeks for him to adjust and settle after the clocks went forward last March.

Has anyone developed any coping strategies?

We're lucky that DD has never really been affected with clocks going forward or back.

 

As the change happens at the weekend, we can be flexible with going to bed & getting up.  DD has always had a very poor sleep pattern anyway so nothing's too rigid.

 

Sorry I can't offer any coping strategies but hope your DS is ok.

Alex has become soo rigid about everything, he's bouncing of the walls in terms of hitting people and generally throwing things round, like he doesn't quite know what to do with himself. He always does this when new things occur for example when we changed from Virgin media to Sky, having a new remote control in the house threw him for a couple of weeks.

Also despite the clocks going back it's taking longer for him to settle at night, so he's actually going to sleep later than he normally would :/

My son always had problems with clock changes, it took him weeks to get round, I always dreaded those times.

Jeanne it sounds as though things have improved though, does that mean that there is some hope yet?

Yes there is always hope.  My son is in a care home and he is nearly 21 now so I think there is improvement with age!
