Hyperactive kids

Thank you for sharing such good content.
Any suggestions for when you have a child who is hyperactive?
My 4yr is very energetic and rarely sits still…even watching a show he is climbing and jumping around.
Best regards

Hi! And welcome to our community! I have found a few things to help with really energetic kids.
Calming music, dimmer lighting and deep pressure/weight bearing activities. Things like wheelbarrow walking, bear walking, log rolling.

Slow deep breathing can also work really well.

Also, after lots of heavy activity outdoors, running, biking, does your child get calmer or more hyeractive? Some kids need to let out lots of energy through movement while others get riled up by too much. Knowing that can help determine what your can look like to help keep the energy a little lower
