  • Because human beings are supposed to be active. It's pretty much only in the Western world, where we train children from a very young age to be sedentary, that whether or not kids 'sit still' is an issue.

  • My son is perpetual motion. He has ADHD, so he's always go, go, go. But I'm glad he CAN go, go, go!

  • Because they are kids and that is what they are supposed to do, ADHD, Autism, etc or not. Be grateful you have a kid that can be loud, active, etc. Some people have kids that can't or their kids are no longer with them.

  • I love that my son always likes to be doing something. We have so much fun! We go shopping, to the park, the Humane Society to walk the dogs.
