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.

That's not hyper behavior. That's a child that isn't disciplined. There's a difference.

Not judging, just curious to help understand the whole situation - do you guys discipline her when she acts this way?

She's 2. You can't use that she may possibly have ADHD as an excuse for her behavior, even if that does end up being the case later on. Structure, discipline, and stability are needed by all young children.

I agree! so many today try to use the adhd excuse and turn them into zombies with medication instead of disciplining! also to original poster - usually doctors don't look into adhd until they are school age from what i've heard.

She doesn't listen, but I do agree with the whole discipline theory. I told my sister since day one that she needed to punish her for her bad behavior. (sit her down on her high chair, take away her toys, basically take away what she liked) no one ever listens to me. But now that her daughter embarrasses her when she is taking her in public is when she is realizing I was right. But I must say this, I won't take care of that child not even if you pay me. Trust me is bad.

As I told the other person I tried telling my sister how to discipline but her is the situation. If my sister wants to discipline her there is my dad, mom and our other sister who baby her.I told her, stop bringing her over until everyone understands that you are the mom and what you say goes.

No reputable Dr will even consider medicating a 2 yr old for ADHD. If a Dr agrees, they are a quack. Don't trust any Dr that would agree to that.

Maybe the your sister to ask the Dr for a behavior specialist. That's a better option than meds at this point.

I agreed. At the same time read read read on ADHD knowledge is power. How my son was diagnosis with ADHD  the parent fill out a questionnaire, and teacher fill out a questionnaire. Your sister needs to build structure environment that her daughter knows that bad behavior is not accepted. I am not accepting you sister to spank maybe time out...............
