Was your child diagnosed? I have it to a degree and find that touching can be a problem along with loud noises and too much activity. Try getting Occupational Therapy to help with dealing with your own SPD and schedule times to be with your kids when you can be "all there". If play dough is too much for you, take them to the movies. If you need activity, take them to the park. Find out what they like to do and see what matches up.. hope that helps. But most of all... talk with them about what you're going through and what it is and how it affects you. Help them to understand that if you're responses are weird to them, it isn't them, its the SPD.
