My son is 5 years 5 months old. He is having attention problem. He is hyperactive and don't want to sleep. He doesn't listen to anyone. Doesn't like to study. until and unless he gets a scolding from me he doesn't want to sit in one place. I am tired of his rude behaviour. Doesn't respect anyone. Do you think we need to consult a psychiatrist? We are very worried about him. Please help us to find some solution. I have only one child and I don't want him to get spoil. please help.

Hello dear The above mentioned symptoms are indicative of Attention deficit Hyperactivity disorder along with behavioural issues. Try consulting a child psychologist for proper diagnosis and treatment. Try to involve him in physical activity that is allow him to play for atleast an hour in the evening and then make him sit to study.
