Q.

Hyperactivity

Hi there

My daughter is 3 and a half years old. She is very hyperactive. She doesn't sleep in the day anymore and never stops moving. She will wake up at 7:30 and only calm down and stop at like 21:30. It is starting to cause me and my hubby to fight. I was wondering what there is to give her to calm her down. I have seen that Procydin can help. ButI am vey nerves to give a child an medication. So maybe you could give me some advice as what to give her.

Thanks

I would definitely not advise any medication. Rather play with her and channel her physical energy in a constructive way. Emotional uncertainty also has a very strong influence on child behaviour.
