My husband seems to think our 4yr old may need medication. She is pretty hyper, and really does not stay still. She has so much energy. She talks all the time and basically when I looked on the ADHD website she had all the symptoms. Yet and still my thinking is she is 4. Is this normal 4yr old behavior???

Little ones are nothing but little balls of energy. It amazes me how many people are so quick to label them hyper, & want to medicate them just because they are active and energetic. All 4 of mine are like that & I can't imagine thinking there's something wrong with them. We just channel their energy into fun activities that keep them busy & expend their energy & there's no problem. I dare to say there are very few little ones who are content to sit around & not be active, and being forced to do so is where the "problem child" type of acting out begins. Give it some time before determining that there needs to be a diagnosis of anything...
