Hi Anu! how r u? It's indeed a challenging task to handle a hyperactive child. Anu the first and the foremost thing u can do is to stay calm yourself . Don't loose your cool and understand this is not something he is doing intentionally. So scolding him or getting angry on him might bring negative results. . So u need to either break the particular task into fragments according to his attention span and make him do some jumping or some physical activity in between and then come back to the same task. This will give him the required break and will also rejuvenate him. Gradually increase the span of activity and reduce break time with increasing attention span. Reward him aptly as this will motivate him to do better each time. Have a quieter and calm environment at home. Also u need to plan some interesting creative exercises at home according to his interest say if he loves to make crafts or do drawing or loves to solve puzzles let him do activity of his choice. appreciate him for his efforts. Do breathing exercises or meditation or yoga with him which will help him calm down and focus. Also assign him chores at home and involve other family members as well say everyone clears their room or cabinets or cleaning the garden area. Anu give undivided attention to him everyday as much as possible so that he feels loved . Tkcare!

Anu I appreciate what u r doing. It does require lot of patience to deal with a child who is a bundle of energy. Try and make a routine. Sit with him and ask him what he likes to do first say he wants to go out and play. Tell him to go and play but come back within a stipulated time say one hour. Then once he is back, sit with him in a room where there is no distraction at all . politely talk to him and help him study. Make his studies interactive and interesting. Give example from day to day life to teach a concept or if possible bring real things and help him learn. Understand his preferential style of learning. For example to teach division or multiplication bring real objects say beads and let him divide or multiply. When u feel he is not listening to u and u r about to shout at him, leave the room have a glass of water and get one for him as well. Stand with him in the balcony. But no matter what don't let the frustration pass on to him. Praise him and reward him by playing his favorite game with him or letting him play for extra 10 minutes. Reduce screen time and increase physical activity. Anu parenting is not easy ,we need to each minute correct ourselves and make ourselves better for the betterment of our children. A warm hug to u. And of course if u feel u find it too taxing and it's affecting your day to day living u can Consult a therapist. Hope this helps!
