An active and hyperactive child - what to do?

It's just that there are more and more “lively” and hyperactive children. Some children cope with this condition. By themselves or with the help of parents and specialists. In another part of the children, their peculiarities are fixed in behavior, the way of knowing the world and problems arise: they are not wanted to be seen in kindergartens, they are transferred to individual education in schools. They are not kept in sections and circles. This does not mean that the child does not want to – he cannot, they cannot cope with him and society squeezes such children.
At the same time, experts say that the sooner it is possible to identify the problem, the easier it is to cope with it. While the characteristics of the child are not fixed in behavior and ways of communication. It's true.

Every parent has questions: HOW TO DETERMINE? what to do?

Next, I will tell you practical recommendations that are important not only for children with the label "hyperactive child", but also for ordinary "vivacious" when their activity begins to disturb others.
What can be applied to a hyperactive child, of course, also works for just very/too active and mobile children.

Next on the list:


Can a parent without special education and skills cope with this task? Maybe. Already from birth, a parent can feel and identify the first signs of the child's condition, which can later lead to hyperactivity: the child falls asleep poorly and sleeps poorly, the child learns motor skills faster than peers, the child's strongly pronounced reactions to sound, light, touch.

After a year, everything becomes more obvious. The child is active, constantly wants to get, climb, get, but unlike an active child, getting does not concentrate on the object, but very quickly loses interest in it. Looking for and finding a new goal. This is similar to the behavior of a person who vacuums a room.

After three years, the child actively communicates with peers. A hyperactive child has difficulties communicating. Such a child can't play, follow the rules of the game, it's hard to wait. Depending on the severity of the problem at the age of three, parents no longer just feel, but clearly know about the problem.

what to do?

At a very early age, as soon as you feel that the behavior and condition of the child is similar to the one described above, contact a massage therapist.

Attention! The most common mistake in conducting a massage in this situation is a massage to reduce tone. There is an opinion that hyperactive children have an increased tone. Children predisposed to hyperactivity have a reduced tone and during the massage they need to tone up. Don't you agree? Then try to strain one arm. As much as you can. And now, without relaxing your hands, actively move it. I know it didn't work out. The result was slow, constrained movements. Hypertonus – tension – stiffness are the antipodes of hyperactivity.

For grown-up children:

▪ Use the interests of the child and..... NATURALLY SLOW DOWN. Likes to play ball, roll cars, throw toys? Buy big toys, big balls, big cars. The volume of toys and the weight of toys will naturally stop the child and develop plasticity of movements. If you give a toy to a child, do not give it in your hands. Let him reach for the toy. Put the items that the child is often interested in higher so that the child reaches for them. This will also slow down the child, make the movements more arbitrary.
Focus THE CHILD'S INTEREST ON HIMSELF. Learn to pay attention to yourself – learn to pay attention to the world around you and consider it not in flight and jump. Dress the child not "correctly". One sock, one ponytail for girls on one side. Dress the child not symmetrically. He will definitely pay attention to this. Don't wear a T-shirt to the end and start wearing tights. Also not to the end, and then finish with a T-shirt
▪ Train the arbitrariness of action (from the word WILL). Usually such children like to carry heavy things. Pour half of it into a plastic liter bottle of water. When the child carries it, the movement of the water in the bottle will constantly interfere with its retention.

Create a little discomfort for the child, but do not overdo it. Slowly and gradually. It is important not to bring the child to an emotional breakdown. This is another manifestation in hyperactive children – hyperemotionality.

Invent and invent.

Similar exercises can be used with children over three years old. At an older age, you can attract a child to water from a watering can (large) in the garden. Give him the responsible job of hosing down the lawn like an adult.
Allow me to put a pot of soup in the refrigerator. Just don't forget to feed the baby and eat yourself before that. Just in case. Dad will survive.
Encourage any useful and necessary housework – AS AN ADULT.
