I would suggest that at least once a day, she get outside & burn some of her energy off. I would suggest going on walks with her, playing games in the yard, playing tag (you can get her easier, but she would have to run a bit faster & stronger to catch mommy) and these are things that will also help you guys spend some fun bonding time together. My friends DD is VERY hyper active, & sometimes she would BEG me to come to her house to take her DD on a walk because she was exhausted! (she had 4 children) I used to a few times a week, but I'm a mom myself now & can't do it as much anymore. But, it really helped. Walking with her made her tired & go to bed earlier. The nights she could not go walk, it was more difficult for her to settle down.
