Q.

Hyperactive son

My son has a problem of hypeacttiveness and the school informed us that he sometimes looses concentration and ends not finishing his work or does it too slowly. Any help there cause he is not a bad boy academically but the hype and levels of concetrations are. We spoken and punished him and improved BUT it has started again. Anything to give him to improve his concetration and deal with the hyperactiveness?

Your son may well have a problem with ADHD but he is rather young to be properly diagnosed at this stage. In the meantime you can try him on EyeQ which may help him. Do not punish him as this is not something that your son can easily control.
