Ok this is easy if you are at home. HI always threw glow sticks into the tub and said iwas going to take a bath. Well my son would calm down and jump in to play with the glow sticks. i turned off the lights and they really glow good in water.

calm down from what??? my daughter is a little tornado too, she just can't sit still. What we did was, we gave her less sugar. That really helped (as crazy as it sounds ;) she used to drink lots of juice - instead we give her water now. Good luck to you

From what? being hyper or when up set. If it is being hyper you need to fine him/her an outlet. Why is he/she hyper? He/she may need more time to run around. Maybe place him/her in a sport or find some kids at a park he/she can play with.If it is from being upset. I always have mine take deep breaths and look me in the eye.I hope this helps.
