Hi Anupama. I know it is very difficult. Do try to do this independently. When they see the improvement they may support.

Hi Santosh, Yes ADHD can only be diagnosed by medical personnel. unfortunately teachers tend to 'label'. It is not right to label without diagnosis which as you mentioned can be done by doctors or clinical psychologists.

Dear Dulomoni, Hyperactivity is a manageable condition. Again is it associated with ADHD ? It can still be managed. If the child is being very energetic then it may not carry into adulthood. Proper diagnosis can be done only be medical personnel and suitable intervention will be advised. I have known children who take medication for ADHD Only in their childhood and not as adults. Again only medical personnel will be able to guide on this.

Good article , some useful suggestions for parents However ADHD can't be labelled by schools, this can be only be commented upon by a trained medical professional. Kids might carry some symptoms like impulsive behavior but do not jump to label it and yes have a lot of patience, parents behavior is also a trigger factor ☺

Archana i would like to advise u one thing u should hv to talk to his principal and teacher personally regarding this problem. I think school is doing all wrong by giving such kind of punishments. How can a teacher punish a child who is just 4 yrs?Surely class room behaviour is not possible for u to control but classteacher with the help of special educators and counsellors can surely do this. Actually these special children needs attention. Try to make him some good friends and try not to overburden him by making him read and write.. make him interested in something he loves to do or hd little bit of interest.

this article came as a rescue for me as I too have the same issue with my son every other day I receive complaint from his teacher he is OK at home listens to me,follows me what I say but the moment he steps out and at school he starts throwing his energy. how can I control him when I was not with him any suggestions please help. he is just 4 and his teacher punishes him by putting out the class where as he is very good at academics and grasps everything quickly.

a very good book i have recently read that is Indigo Children... The book states that not all hyperactive children are ADHD and ADD... it is sometimes teachers at school who classify these children with this adjective... just two months back i also got a call from teacher to meet her.. when i went to my daughters school to meet her class teacher she said ur child is suffering from ADD not ADHD so we have put her in special class.. i was very disturbed because i hd nvr expected that this could happen to my daughter..... but then i gv up thinking about the adjective used and started concentrating on the improvement of my child in academic field.. one of my well wisher told me about this book... i read and applied some of its advises... And IT WORKED... before making her sit for studies i gossip with her about nature star moon sun... i asked her u tell me how the rain comes... and all sorts of interesting questions which may force her to think use her silent thinking ability... really she then started listening to my words... if she was not interested in studies i would give her a paper and tell her to draw anything she want and colour whatever colour she likes... she was very happy as she nvr wanted to colour the sky blue sun the yellow and moon white.... she coloured differently she coloured sun red sky purple and moon blue... clouds black... haha interestingly i was also very happy... Good thing she has now understood that she have to complete classwork she have to sit for studies at a specific time... Last time when i met her class teacher... she was very happy to share that my daughter had gone through a drastic change in her behaviour... The book had helped me so far a lot.... While reading this blog i felt like if my experience could help others too.

Hello Harlene, l read this blog very attentively. It is a really very nice work attempted by you. very well organised and focused. You are absolutely correct that the concept of a hyperactive child is relative as it varies from person to person. Thanks a lot for your contribution...
