Hi there,

I have a 3 year old son that behave in a very hyperactive way.He has a older brother of 5 and seems to be like a bully.He can''t sit still for long and is very eggitated most of the times.He cries if he can''t get his way and will go on till he gets his way.We never took him to a doctor for this.We will put him in his bed at night,but he will come crawl in by us during the night.

It does sound as if your son's behaviour is hyperactive. It is difficult to make the actual diagnosis of ADHD before the age of 5 years, but it would be worthwhile even at this stage taking him to see a child psychologist for an opinion and advice.

If you give your child the following : chocolates, coke, yoghurt, then your child will be hyperactive try not to feed him in the afternoon and see how he will behave. My grandson also behave like that especially if we give him coke, he even climbs on top of the coffee table, he will have this irritating cry, then we realized that coke makes him to behave like that.
