We have a rule, no smiley ....no outside time after school.

My son doesn't like to shut up during school or stay in his seat. this rule seems to be working though.

I've heard diet can have a lot to do with hyperactivity. Making some changes there could help you avoid medication.

I think its time to talk to a behavioral therapist and the pediatrition for possible meds. I know thats not a popular answer nowadays but I still bellieve in it. Made a world of difference in my 6 y/o that acted just like that.

I agree, as a teacher, that meds help in some cases. However, it depends on what interventions the school has tried. Too many people want to avoid trying everything on their end and want meds to be the first option. It should be a last resort, IMO.

Have you tried running him for a mile before school?  Burn that energy off!!!!  I feel bad for kids that can't sit still in class when they are little, because they are bored and uninterested, and it doesn't make them wrong to the point where the system should drug them until their poor little brain chemistry changes beyond repair.  Good Lord

There is nothing wrong with your son. The school system is designed as "one size fits all" a.k.a. assimilate or be punished. This is unfair because every human being is unique. Please do not put him on meds. Have you asked his pawpaw to talk to him?

I agree with a few of the moms here. Change of diet to avoid prescription intervention, and running a quarter mile, mile, whatever before school. Some kids benefit from expelling morning energy, maybe before breakfast.

My son was acting out so we went to a children's counselor. He was able to help us figure out what was going on, it definitely couldn't hurt to talk to a professional.
