My 5 yr. old son has more energy than he knows what to do with and constantly wants to do something every minute. Its exhausting. What do I do?

Kimberely,
Thank you so much for the advice. I am a stay at home so there is time for us to do some arts and crafts which we can do. However, we are in trouble financially and have only one car which my husband has at work and we don't much money at all right now just a difficult time right now financially.

Plan, plan and more planning lol. My 3 year old is like a rocket. I found that Hobbies helps. Have you tried football, Boxing (depending how you feel about boxing some mums don't like it) but child boxing is fantastic on account they don't actually box, but they train like a boxer and learn the discipline with it. Oh yeah and there's tennis too. Depending how your routine is have you tried crafts at home. I put 2 hours a day for an at home activity and found that it makes the world of difference. Oh yeah, languages might help too, or something to give the brain that bit of extra stimulation. I've got my 3 year old asking question about space ?!@? lol
