Is my child hyperactive?
Now a days we hear very often from parents, teachers, grandparents, neighbors that “this child is very hyperactive”.
Many parents make the child sit for studies for hours which is beyond their capacity and then complain, call them hyperactive, can’t sit for studies, keeps talking, leaves the place often, etc. But hyperactivity involves many other characteristics to be identified before we label any child as hyperactive.
The technical term is attention deficit hyperactive disorder (adhd). Which involves inattention, hyperactivity and impulsive.
If five out of nine hyperactive behaviors (given below) are present in the child then only we can say that the child is hyperactive.
1. Often fidgets with hands or feet or squirms in seat.
2. Often leaves seat in classroom or in other situations in which remaining seated is expected.
3. Often runs about or climbs excessively in situations in which it is inappropriate.
4. Often has difficulty playing or leisure activities quietly.
5. Is often on the go or often acts as if driven by a motor.
6. Often talks excessively.
7. Often blurts out answers before questions have been completed.
8. Often has difficulty awaiting turns.
9. Often interrupts or intrudes on others.
Let us all decide not to label any child as hyperactive before we find at least 5 out of the above mentioned characteristics in the child.
If you find that your child has hyperactivity then you must take some steps to manage the hyperactivity.
We all have heard michale phelps name. Who has won more than 10 gold medals in olympics. He was diagnosed with ADHD.
Following tips can help you to manage your child’s behavior:
Acceptance: first parents must take it positively that your child is hyperactive which means his energy level is more than his peers. If this energy is utilized, your child can do wonders.
Physical activity: parents should send their child for some physical activity as per the availability and liking of the child. For example: swimming, karate, basketball, skating, etc.
Managing behavior: behavior modification techniques are a great tool available with parents to improve the child’s behavior and increase his understanding about his own behavior.
Patience: parents patience level needs to be very high with these kids. If parents give up on them, scold them every now and then, point out their mistakes in front of others, talk to the sarcastically, hurt their ego unknowingly, these type of parent’s behavior lowers their self esteem, lowers self confidence.
Diet: balanced diet is very important for these kids as their activity level is high they can suffer with some deficiencies. Its been suggested by some researchers that sweet consumption should be lower for hyperactive kids. Read child's nutrition requirements.
Quality time: if parents spend quality time with kids they tend to listen to that parent more. Kids co-operate and respect the parent who spends more quality time instead of telling them all the time does and dont's. Quality time is that time when the parent and the child both enjoy each other’s company, engage in some activity which they both like.
For example: cooking a special dish, outdoor game, indoor game, oiling each other’s hair, planning an event, trekking, planning a shopping list, cleaning house, watering plants, watching a movie together, etc.
School parent coordination: its very important to inform the school about the child’s problem so that the school staff also help in managing the child’s behavior.
If the hyperactive kids are engaged properly and parents nurture their self-esteem, these kids can do wonders. They can be very productive, happy and responsible citizens.
Lets give them a good environment to develop their potential and a great future.

All parents expect their child to start going to school, learn writing and learning and do well in academics. However, children with dyslexia may not be able to progress at school at the same pace as others. The good news is that there are early pointers that can help a parent to identify dyslexia in the early stages. This can be helpful in training and support the child socially to learn and socialise normally. Dyslexia is a disability that affects both spoken and written language. They have a different learning style and when supported and encouraged, instead of mocked and insulted, they can become avid readers. The following are common 10 indicators of developing dyslexia in children, in general, and at school.
10 Behavioural signs to watch for in general:
- The child usually has difficulty concentrating and following instructions
- The child is easily distracted, seems to daydream, and tends to forget words.
- Poor personal organisation skills and is not very good at time keeping.
- May get confused between today, tomorrow, yesterday; east and west; right and left; up and down.
- Has difficulty remembering seasons, months and days.
- Tends to be doing something to avoid work.
- Seems distracted, and ‘daydream,’ does not seem to listen
- Requires a lot of effort focusing on things at hand and is constantly tired.
- Slow pace of processing in terms of spoken or written language
- Often appears withdrawn or lost in his own world.
10 Behaviours to watch for at school:
- Poor standard of writing and written work in comparison with oratory skills.
- Poor handwriting with badly formed letters.
- Confused easily between similar looking letters like m/w, n/u, b/d.
- Usually, messes up work by using close but wrong spellings and rewriting the same
- Mixes up words by using similar-looking words – quiet and quite, tired and tried.
- Same word is spelt differently at different times
- Poor motor skills and pencil grip leading to slow, inaccurate writing
- Produces a lot of phonetic spelling which does not change with repeated corrections
- There is difficulty in blending words together, and struggles a lot when asked to read out loud, can miss out or add words that are familiar in between
- Has difficulty connecting the story that is being written or read
As noted, these children have very inconsistent behaviour with very limited understanding of nonverbal communication. If these symptoms go on increasing as they grow, it is advisable to seek professional help so that support can be provided and the condition can be arrested at the early stages. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.
