If you have a child that is hyperactive please help me.PIOG
My niece is 2 1/2 and out of control, she won't stay still for 5 mins. I know all kids are hyper and run around but this is too much. Yesterday we had a BBQ with over 60 people at my moms house and there were lots of kids. My sister couldn't let her outside to play with the kids cause she was just running out of control, pushing other kids(plus it was cold out and she had a runny nose) so they went inside and one lady who had never seen my niece asked me. She is hyperactive right? I told her that she didn't have an actual diagnosis yet but we were all leaning towards it. In the 10 mins she was inside she tried to carry a table lamp that she almost broke. Took a vase with flowers and threw it all out by my aunt's feet. Threw herself on the floor when her mom brought her food, brought out all her toys and threw them in the living room. Needles to say my aunt and everyone that was in the living room were going crazy. Now she had an EEG and early intervention and both said she was fine. So I don't know what type of test is done for hyperactivity if any. There is a lot my sis can do to maybe calm her a bit but up until yesterday she was against them all. Last I heard my mom said she might ask her therapist to medicate my niece. My question is if you have a hyperactive child was it diagnose? what do you do about it? medicine, natural ways.
