My son 2 1/2, from the time he gets up in the morning to the very last minute before he goes to bed is a ball of energy he wont listen and time outs, taking the toys away or even in extreme cases a tap on the bum wont do anything he runs when I tell him to come, especially when he found something dangerous like a pen, he just runs, everywhere, gets chairs and climbs the tv stand or the table, he tries to get to the medicine cabinets witch are all child proof, what I'm getting to is that he wont be still for a second not even when he eats he has to be in motion, he is extremely smart and I'm hoping that this is why he is so active, maybe boredom? I spoke to his Dr. and she says he's fine for his age, that smart kids get bored easily to put him at the Montessori school here in my town, where the activities keep him busy all day. We do not have the means to put him on preschool right now. and to be honest I'm afraid to do so, for fear that he might get hurt there or hurt another child while the teacher is looking some where else for a sec. I have taken him to the ER for cuts and falls 9 times this past year, I'm always tense and super tired all the time right now, I don't know I just know that do to this I've decided to not have anymore children. I feel bad because my husband and I wanted at least two kids, but I'm afraid. Please help.
