Watch out for red juice. When I was growing up my stepsister had ADHD and wasn't allowed to have red juice because the dye in it sent her off the wall. Never understood until now, because I have a little boy who does the same. Red is not a natural colour for juice, it's all artificial.

My son is seven and can get so hyper that he will be just running laps around around kitchen island and jumping on and over the back of the couch. He just can't seem to settle himself down and when you discipline him, his eyes don't even focus on you. When he gets like this we have to ask or take him to his room for 5-10 minutes of quiet time. I've also worked with him on doing some taking deep relaxing breathes.

do u find he does this after eating certain foods/drink?
i have had to modify my 2yr olds diet 2 very natural foods due 2 the same problem.
preservative 220, 621, 331, 324, 226 all send him INSANE and anything with a large amount of sugar has the same effect.
i hv also found things such a pear and nectarines do the same.
how hyper are we talking when he gets in a mood? is it just silly hyper or agro?
ive had a few incidents where i hv had to throw my child into a luke warm shower nd sponge him down nd tlk calmly to him for 15mins or so whilst sponging him down bcoz he has been so OFF the wall.

Watch his sugar in take. You might find it is alot more then you think. That or he may be getting tired at that moment. Try getting him to sit on you lap & read a book to him. That or take him outside and let him run it out of his system.
