I have 18months old daughter and she is so hyperactive, every day after work when we get home she wants to eat, play at the same time. when i give her food she will still wants something to eat after that, her mouth must not be empy at all, when i ignore her she cries until i give her wat she wants, how do i control her because am out of ideas now. Sometime i just need to rest after work but she''''s so stuborn and cheeky. One last thing how important is deworm and how does it work.

You only need to deworm your child if she plays in sandy soil and where there are animals around such as dogs.Your daughter seems to be trying to make up for the time during the day when she is away from you.Is she at a creche and does she eat well there at lunchtime?Try to distract her by playing a game with her when you get home and even spend time reading to her or showing her pictures in a children's book or a magazine..She is very young still but also let her try to' help' you to do some small task in the house.She needs to start joining you at the table at suppertime and trying to feed herself.You will find and also get more information on our Parenting line on Health24.
