is my son seriously getting MORE hyperactive as he gets older?!?!

the past couple weeks my son has had SO much more energy than usual (and he's always had A LOT of energy). i haven't been giving him sugary foods or anything different, so i don't know whats going on. But even if i've had him outside all day, when we come in for the night he still has soooo much energy. He seriously will run back and forth through the house, run in circles, scream, and crash his toys into eachother. What's his deal?? Cuz it's really starting to aggravate me :\

  • Have you tried other food allergies? A lot of kids are allergic to corn, because it's in practically everything and it's a persistent protein that's hard to digest --it can overwhelm a body.

    Have you tried omega3 fatty acid supplements? A friend of mine had a son who was NUTS whenever he was shy on essential fatty acids. There are a couple of supplements that are marketed specifically for it.

    You don't say how old he is. I suspect it matters.

  • Teach him better ways to use up that energy, rather than running in circles and screaming.
