Hyperactive children

Postby Din100 » Sun Nov 05, 2017 7:15 pm

Hello guys, I have a child and recently a doctor told me that my child is hyperactive after the medical examination. When someone says a kid is hyperactive, it can be a sign that the kid might have ADHD. ADHD stands for a condition called attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Kids with ADHD have problems paying attention and sitting still in their seats, and they can be impulsive,which means doing things without thinking about the results. This can cause problems like getting hurt. Some kids who have ADHD can have difficulty in school. Some might have trouble making friends. ADHD is something a kid is born with. It is not something like the flu that you can catch from someone. A kid has a greater chance of being born with ADHD if he or she has a relative who has ADHD.
Everything is understandable and if to talk about my child, she is very active, but she's very attentive, she notices everything, she's two and a half years and she knows alphabet, knows numbers, she can count till 5, she knows a lot of foreign words, she lives behind many children which were born in the same year. So I can't understand whether the doctor made a mistake, or there isn't simply such a disgnoses. What would you say about it?

Hi guys. Though I am not a doctor, having the child necessarily will become the doctor, but nevertheless if the child can will focus on something, can learn a rhyme or a short song (I speak about the child of your age now), can quietly draw or the child sleeps without special problems at night, then most likely he just active. To my child already 3,5 years, she goes to kindergarten and normally develops, but nevertheless we are observed at the neurologist because of a state which is called the persuasive movements. When to it that - very much is pleasant or she is horney, strains handles and legs, and can involuntarily stir them, but said to us that it can be because of hyperactivity, and some doctors claimed that everything is all right. But I consider that it is necessary for you will address one or two experts for specification and clearing of a situation. Good luck to you. Let our children will be always healthy!

Hello. Many of us has our own children and we are very upset when something is wrong with our children. We are very upset when our children catch cold, sneeze, have a cough. Hyperactive child can be a problem, but I don't think that it is a very serious problem. Many children nowadays are born with such a diagnosis. First of all, if a doctor diagnoses it, he should diagnose it not just because of his own words, but he should prescribe you child to pass some analysis. If tha analysis confirm the diagnosis, so then the doctor would prescribe your child some medicine or give some advices what to do, but this diagnosis doesn't cure, your child is born such, so I don't think that medicine is needed. Nowadays many doctors prescribe medicines for you to spend money and that's all.

It’s normal for children to occasionally forget their homework, daydream during class, act without thinking, or get fidgety at the dinner table. But inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity are also signs of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD or ADD). ADHD can lead to problems at home and school and affect your child’s ability to learn and get along with others. The first step to addressing the problem and getting your child the help he or she needs is to learn to recognize the signs and symptoms of ADHD. The signs and symptoms of ADHD typically appear before the age of seven. However, it can be difficult to distinguish between attention deficit disorder and normal “kid behavior.” So, as you can see, I don't think that the doctor who told you that your child is hyperactive was wrong.

Hyperactive children may fidget, have difficulty concentrating, be unable to sit still or generally be overexcited. A child who is hyperactive does not always mean that they have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), but they may have certain tendencies that contribute to difficulty in maintaining focus. Medication for hyperactivity is often over-prescribed. Instead, diet changes, routines and calming activities can help to calm a hyperactive child. Create a calming kids-only space. Dedicate a corner of a room, a nook, or other small space to making a space that the child can sit in by themselves. Put pillows, stuffed animals, books or other cozy items in this space. This is not a time-out space where they go when they are in trouble. Instead, this is a space where they feel safe and can get a chance to relax.

Put pillows, stuffed animals, books or other cozy items in this space. This is not a time-out space where they go when they are in trouble. Instead, this is a space where they feel safe and can get a chance to relax. Play calm music. If you play music in your house, choose more soothing music like classical or meditative music, rather than upbeat pop or hard rock. Too much noise can be a trigger for some children to become hyperactive, and eliminating or changing the type of noise can be helpful in calming children. Minimize screen time. Too much exposure to television, video games, computers and phones can trigger hyperactivity. These devices often have rapidly moving images, bright colors and loud sounds that are the opposite of calming. Limit screen time or eliminate it altogether.

I know that to diagnose the syndrome of hyperactivity in children, an electroencephalographic study or a study using magnetic resonance imaging is performed. The procedures are absolutely painless and safe. The presence of DVG syndrome and the need for further treatment of a hyperactive child are determined by the combination of the results obtained.If your child is overexcited, try to change the situation to a calmer one, for example, offer him water or take him to another room. If the baby is upset, hug him, stroke on the head - this gives a positive result, since physical contact is very significant for children with ADHD. A good way to treat hyperactivity in children is to take a soothing bath before going to bed.

Feed your child complex carbohydrates. Children with ADHD usually have lower serotonin and dopamine levels. A change in diet can sometimes improve those deficiencies to some extent. A diet rich in complex carbohydrates can increase serotonin for improved mood, sleep, and appetite. Feed your child complex carbohydrates like whole grains, green vegetables, starchy vegetables, and beans. All these release energy gradually, rather than all at once like simple sugars. Make sure your child eats plenty of protein. A protein-rich diet may improve your child's ability to focus. Prepare meals that include several proteins over the course of the day to keep dopamine levels high. Proteins include meat, fish, and nuts. Some protein-rich foods like legumes and beans double as complex carbohydrates.

Wow Din it is quite a different theme for discussion. I am not sure that my children are hyperactive but they are not slow. I would not be satisfied with hyperactive baby. Thanks for your talking that kids with ADHD have problems paying attention and sitting still in their seats, and they can be impulsive,which means doing things without thinking about the results. This can cause problems like getting hurt. Some kids who have ADHD can have difficulty in school. Some might have trouble making friends. ADHD is something a kid is born with. Now I know it

Hi, OP! I've read your initial post and your daughter seems to be quite ok. I think you know better than a doc whether your child is healthy or not. Maybe, your daughter is simply quite energetic so she likes to move very much. You can also consut another specialist and maybe he will not approve this diagnosis who knows.
P.S. If I were you, I wouldn't think much about such things. Frankly speaking, I like energetic and live children more than quite ones!
