Something to calm over active 2yr old boy

i have a 2yr old boy who is super active, His very active during the day talking, shouting, running, jumping etc, cant sit still at all., not even for a minute. His very advanced for his age. On saturday its my Dad''s funeral and i would like to know if there is something i can give him just to keep him calm for that day. i do not want him to continue the medication as i am sure he will outgrow this but i just need something for Saturday when we are in Church. please assist. I live in Cape Town. Thanks

Sedatives are not recommended for children of this age and often have the opposite effect causing children to become even more active. You can try Rescue Remedy for children, but it would really be best not to take your son to the Church service.
