Dear worried mom,
I have to agree with 'another mom' on the possibility of your child being gifted and therefore acting out in boredom. If this the case (determined by an assessment) some enrichment work may be the answer. I wonder if you have investigated her diet as a cause? It is not necessarily a high sugar diet that provides ample energy; some children become 'hyper' due to a difficulty in digesting certain foods/compounds such as dairy or gluten. A dietician may be able to assist you in this process. I also wonder what structured activities/sports your daughter participates in? It is important not to overload children with too many activities but directing her energies constructively may also help. There are also a variety of remedies out there which can help with the hyperactivity and aggression, such as medication, neurofeedback or an excercise based programme which stimulates certain areas of the brain. I wish you all the best in this endeavour.
