When my daughter is hyper I take her outside and run around with her, we chase each other & have races, if it's too cold outside Iturn up her favorite music & we dance. By the time we're done she's ready to rest

3 year olds have a TON of energy. Before considering adhd I would just make sure he gets lots of play time to work off all that energy. Also look at his diet. Does he have a lot of sugar or juice? Diet can have a huge effect on children's behavior.

I would try taking him outside. My oldest is going to be 2 in June and is a very very hyper child. I have tried taking him outside and it works except for the days that he gets a second wind. We haven't given him juice and he barely ever gets sweets.

thanks for the comments. Running outdoors may just work. I just hope it don't make him even more hyper, lol.
