If your kid does not sit at one place for even a minute, you probably have a hyperactive child. Some of the hyperactive symptoms of a hyperactive kid include not being able to stay focused, easily getting distracted, mind is always wandering, makes careless mistakes, impulsive and overenthusiastic behavior. You need to be patient to handle a hyperactive child. Your child needs more attention, patience, and care so they can channelize their energies.


The thing with hyperactive kids is they want to do something or the other all the time, and so it is important to channelize their thought process and energy. You can find out what your child likes doing and what is their hobby. Look for ways to vent out their energy and relax their minds. Outdoors play like tennis, karate, baseball can be of help. Understanding their enthusiastic behavior can also help them deal with their feelings. Other things that you can do include minimizing distractions especially for activities that require focusing like their homework. Make sure the space or room they are in is relaxed, comfortable and does not have distractions. Identify their strengths and weaknesses and avoid criticizing your child, encourage attention to detail, help them indulge in activities like swimming, activities that enhance creativity.
