I agree with the previous mums. A decent diet makes a big difference. Also, is he spending too much time w/ TV or video games? My kids get crazy when they don't get enough exercise. When they act up, I send them outside to run around. It helps!

I TOTALLY agree with Jodi--try cutting out preservatives.  This can be hard in today's processed-food world, but it definitely worked for my son.  This means no store-bought cookies, fruit roll-ups, chocolate milk, etc etc and the obvious--McD's etc.  It was not the sugar that made my son hyper.  It was the store-bought cake treats I gave him.  I make brownies and a batch of cookies once a week, so his sweet tooth gets fed, but I control the ingredients that go into them.  Voila!  A happy, and calmer kid.  Good luck!

Have you tried reducing the amount of preservatives in his diet that what my paediatrician told me to do it worked to extent it is just a matter of removing one thing at a time, if not try asking his day care centre (if he goes to day care) for advice they may be able to suggest things as well. good luck!
