    another observation at a playroom today. just wanted to share some thoughts on "hyperactive" children.

    today at the playroom, my daughter (22 mths) was running around, jumping, waving her arms around like a mad woman, climbing up & down & screaming cos she was very excited. then there was these 2 girls (one must be 6 the other 4 yr old) walking around the playroom. the 4 yr old, tried to climb up the 4 steps to enter the trampoline area. the older lady (i assume she's the grandma) said "oh, she starting to want to climb... now she's learning to get naughty!" to her daughter (i asume the mother of the 2 girls). i was shocked!! my daughter is 22 mths & she just learnt how to climb & i'm soooo proud that she can do it well. and here it is another MUCH older girl, when she wanted to climb up, her grandma said she's naughty?! what are arms & legs for??

    I heard some parents give medicine to their hyperactive children and personally, I think that's quite disturbing. Kids are supposed to enjoy and be active. What's wrong with that??? It's when the kid is staring into space like a dum-dum, that's when you start to get worried. So Engee, if I were you, I'd just let it be and let my kid enjoy his childhood.

    For having a friend whose daughter is hyperactive...

    As long as your child is able to concentrate on an activity, and that he being active doesn't disturb is ability to socialize and make friends you shouldn't worry.

    In case you have doubts... definitely get a medical opinon from a doctor specialized in these kind of problem... and not just the regular ped... who most of the time doesn't know much about the real medical meaning of hyperactivity.

    @Gabesmom

    Trouble with hyperactivity... is that the label is unfortunately quite often too fast apposed... and children who are just very active end up with medication.

    For the few children with real problems... the medication really change their life.
