hi all..i no all children are diffrent and that todds are really active..but my son is soo active he wont conentrate on doing little things..when we go to childrens groups he so much more hyper then the other todds his age..the last time we went to a group we had to leave half way thru cos he was supose to sit down and do actions to a song but he just wanted to climb the book shelves..he isnt a naughty child..hes so sweet and loving but it would be nice to be able 2 see him sit a go through a whole book..or play with less active toys..hes in the garden most of the days..iv tryed a change of diet but that didnt help..it isnt a problem...he tires me out but dont all todds hey..i was just wondering if any 1 else tod is like this and how they get them to sit down n concentrate

Hey may or may not have ADD/ADHD however most kids just like structure and to be busy - my son is busy from the moment he wakes until the time he goes to sleep however he must be programmed - two opportunities to get out during the day - running and playing and then activities playing, colouring, playdough, etc. We do books when he wakes and before bed and he is allowed a half hour of tv before 8am and before 7:30pm when he goes to sleep. If we don't keep him busy all day he gets wrangy. a good nap is also important otherwise he goes totally nuts. Just keep at it and make sure that he has structure and constructive activities. Indoor playgyms and getting to an empty mall early in the day are great when weather is bad if they need to run around a bit. My son LOVES escalators. Lots of luck!

my friends child is a very active toddler so she took him to the doctor and they sent him to do some tests.She found out he might have A D D and a touch of autisum.not to worry you but may be something to look into.But then my daughter was a terror when younger and now she is nearly 4 has settled down a lot.hope this helps.
