Ok, yes it is true that toddlers are active. It is also true that this is normal and healthy. HOWEVER- there are mommies I know out there that understand this phrase "My child is BEYOND active, she is CONSTANTLY active and NEVER stops." I'm not talking about being interested in touching everything or even running away from mommy. I'm talking about a child SO active that even when you take them outside to run and play and they run for 30 minutes or more- they return in the house with just as much energy as they left with. This is my daughter- and I'm wondering what to do about it. I fear that putting her in dance won't be enough, sports possibly, I'm even thinking of karate. What are your suggestions or successes that you've experienced with a severely active child?

my son, who is now 9, was on the go from the minute he could move freely and on his own - he stopped napping at 2, but slept through the night - a good 10 hours every night - he is still very active - was diagnosed at 5 with ADHD - what I learned way beck when is controlling the diet - start now with a healthy diet - very little processed foods, very little processed sugar foods and drinks - try to go as natural as possible. Once you find something that your son really enjoys concentrate on it until he gets bored - then change the direction go for a walk around the block, then come back - he may pick up right where he left off - don't fight it, go with it - you will save yourself a lot of frustration and anxiety
