How To Deal With Hyperactive Children

ParentCircle, ParentcircleParentCircle

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or ADHD is a serious problem that requires proper parental attention. You cannot afford to dismiss your kid’s hyperactive behaviour as a childhood phase. Your kid could be just more active than most. But her hyperactivity can also be ADHD. Kids with ADHD can be impulsive, have problem concentrating and may often speak out of turn.

If your child is always hyper, you must consult with a doctor for a proper diagnosis. If you take care of your kid’s hyperactive behaviour on time, she may have fewer problems in school and also in adjusting to her personal and professional life as an adult. An article titled What Is Hyperactivity?, published in kidshealth.org states, “Kids who have ADHD can have normal, happy lives.” If your kid is just more active than most but doesn’t have ADHD, try funnelling her energy into fun tasks such as sports and family hiking trips.

Singer Adam Levine and actor Channing Tatum openly speak up about their ADHD. Many successful people like Richard Branson are known to have ADHD. Understood.org featured a quote from famous singer Will.i.am on his ADHD, (from Daily Mirror), “You’re always moving and thinking about a whole bunch of things. But those traits work well for me in studios and in meetings about creative ideas.”

Kids with ADHD may be different. But with parental love and care, they can really blossom into happy and successful individuals.
