I never had it in mind that thing were ever going to come back to normal, My name is Jimmy and i am so pleased to thank Dr.Aladdin for doing what he knows how to do best that is bring back lost lover. My lover and myself has some stress with each other and it led to our break up, After a while i was missing my lover and i needed her back but she refuse to pick my call or reply my mails or test message. During my search on the internet i saw the details of Dr.Aladdin which were via email: whiterabbitspell@yahoo.and i contacted Dr.Aladdin and by his help i was able to get my lover back within 48 hours. If you are having any stress in your marriage or relationship contact Dr.Aladdin today so that you can also testify of his powers

Hyperactive children get easily bored and giving them regular tasks is really important. Keeping them active always may make them to concentrate on a single work and not distracted. My nephew is a hyperactive kid and we got many complaints after he started going to school. But, we explained about him and requested his teacher to be little kind and positive towards him. She is continuing her support till date and his school Orchids International also supported and gave good comfort for us and the kid.

hello! i found the article very well written and containing some great advice. the advice however may work well with parents in an ideal situation. i am a single mother who lives a great distance away from any family. i do not have a real support network in this area. my daughter is 3 and a red head! she is wonderful and earns every strand of her red hair! i have to be able to get some work done in order to keep a roof over our heads. i have been out of the office for one week due to a case of head lice on my daughter. we have done everything that you suggest, nothing has helped. i have been unable to make the money i could have made from my home office. i am not even able to make a business phone call. i so much want to nuture my daughter's spirit, yet we also have to survive it. ;) any suggestions are welcome! sending all the love, light, and joy this life has to offer! christina

read this story and i have three over active children also. my middle child, who is four, is the most disruptive. my husband and i live far away from family so i understand christina's dilema about being a 24 hour/7 day a week mom with no vacation. perhaps, in our modern era the children as so hyper because our society is so demanding, competitive, and fast paced. every one i talk too seems to have the problem of extremely active children who have all the energy to be destructive but are un motivated to do chores or help others. even in school when i was growing up we took shop and home economics to learn how to help our parents. at eight years old i baby sat my sister. my mother taught me how to be responsible. at 9 i would ride my bike to all of my friends houses all around the neighborhood in the suburbs of new york city. up to the 1970's children could have more freedom and independence. now as a parent you feel until the age of 18 a child must be attached to your apron strings. you feel guilty just filling your gas at the station if on a cold day you must leave them in a locked car, despite the fact you can see them from the speedway register. we punish the freedom of children and parents because police do not want to lock up criminals who harm children. its easier to call a parent irresponsible and blame them for our violent society. even at school the children are given too much sugar which in my generation people ate less sweets and more comfort food. when i was a child i was always with my friends outside running around. the kids today are entertained by computer games and since they get little activity they are either hyper at the wrong times or obease and lazy. perhaps restlessness and hyper activity will continue to be a problem until society as a whole calms down and is less aggressive.

this article and comments of other moms have helped me feel a lot better. i sometimes feel that i am the only person with a difficult child to deal with. sometimes my 4 year old son has streaks of sweet days, where i think he has finally outgrown his distructive and sometimes mean behavior, and then it pops up again. i love my son so much, it hurts me that he might not fit in with others. let's keep up being consistent with limitations, keep them feeling loved even when unloveable and maybe they will break through this out of control stage.

my son has just had his 6th birthday and is in year 2 at school so he is one of the youngest in his class. he has always found it difficult to sit still unless he is doing something that he really enjoys and going to school is not one of them! his school have been fantastic and really supportive which is essential for parent and child. before i read this article i hadn't heard of overactivity but reading the article made me realise that this could well be the problem. so i am going to try the methods mentioned with the school and at home and see how it goes. i will keep you posted!

my son 4 years old he's been overactive sense he was a year old an i dont know what to do i'm like most of you nobody dont want to keep my son even family members. he's always into something, he scream all the time, he kicks, he's really violent at time with is sister there always fighting. hes had problem with his ears sense he was born and he dont hardly talk. ive mention to the docter that hes very overactive an i cant keep up with him i even came a hair of loosing him in the wood it only took him a minute to get away from me i'm really afraid that hes going to really hurt or lost on me one of these days and the only thing the docter tells me is it could be two thing . hes acting out were he has trouble hearing and he cant express is self, or its pop an candy causing is overactivenes. i dont think some of these doctors no what there doing. i have found only one thing that will keep him still for at least 2-3hrs at a time an thats cartoons. but all kids might not keep them still but you can try or find a interest that they like an it might just work.

my child is 2 and half year old is very hyperactive, it is very difficult to do anything when he is around. he is constant source of energy the only thing which can keep him at one place is cartoons which i think that make a bad impression on children and detain their social life. i always need one person running behind him. he is otherwise very brainy, i always keep some time in my schedule to play with him and to take him out in park ,the problem which i have is that at this age only he just dont want me to stand by him. like when he is on the swings and i stand by the side to hold him so that he may not hurt himself he says to me to get a side i don't no what to do

hi. i have two children aged 10 and 7. my youngest, stefan are over-active and we have trouble where ever we go. it seems to me that i use his name more often than breathing!usually i can get him to quiet down only when he can watch cartoons. i have noticed that alot of you say the same thing.he is in school and recently the teachers phones me often to complain about his behaviour in class. he makes friends very easily, but loose them quikly too. i feel bad for him, because even with people around him he is understand him, not even me. he can be sweet and caring one minute and agressive and rebellious the next. our whole family are suffering becuase we dont know how to deal with this.i made him a appointment to see a pediatrician for evaluation and hopefully there will be light at the end of the tunnel. thank you for the advice and i will try it out and see what happens! yolandi

my son is 5 years old. he has been very active since birth. he never sleeps and can be very disruptive, especially at school. however he is always happy, regardless of how naughty he is being - he always laughs & smiles, but just has no idea how to sit still or be quiet. our gp says his difficulty is that he has a very high iq and that we need to wait for his maturity level to catch up. we have already tried all the things the article suggests, and i am quite sure he is safe and happy in his own little world. sometimes it would just be nice to get a good nights sleep. we love him dearly and wouldn't be without him, even though we know we will be waiting a long time to catch up on our sleep!!!

"the police don't want to lock up criminals who harm children?!!?"(lora usa) that has got to be one of the most ignoany comments i have ever heard! crime has gone up incredibly from the 1970s, and officers are out there trying to keep this place a little more safe for your are obviously the type of parent that leaves her kids in the car and lets them roam the streets by them selves and then wonders why they are disfunctional or get into trouble....get real.

i've heard that a lack of magnesium in a childs diet can cause the child's nervous system to run amuck. plus the food we eat is loaded with sugars. try getting a blood test to see if your childs magnesium levels are low and get a good liquid, magnesium, suppliment. change their diets! that is why so many children are being diagnosed with add now. doctor aren't trained sufficiently in natural methods of healing, only drugs. i would much rather give a child an apple than a pill. use your doctor to find out what the blood tests results are but please don't give your children ritalin unless there is no alternative. do your homework. your child is worth it. change their diet and probably yours to. organic milk, fresh fruit, organically raised beef and chicken (no antibiotic injected beef or cage raised chickens), fresh vegetables instead of the overcooked cardboard we serve them now. don't feed them dried processed food from boxes or fast food loaded with grease. we are setting them up for cancer, obesity and so many other maladys that their bodies can't handle without the proper fuel, that is, good wholesome food to fight disease. children love a plate of cut up fruit. if you sit and eat with them and comment on how delicious it is but let them eat what they want off the plate (i called it the "snacking plate" and my boys loved it) you might be surprised at what they will eat. don't serve them individual plates because that makes them think they have to eat what you put on their plate. one large plater for them to pick and choose from works better. i got my husband involved and when they saw dad eating and making a big deal out of how great it was, they treated it like a treat and gobbled it up. you may want to try some wholegrain bread that is warmed with real butter on it. don't use margarine. their is no food in it. if you left a tub of margarine outside for a couple of days you would find that even the bugs don't want it. they know better. well, good luck...and do your research. our children are worth it.

my 2 1/2 yr old son has always been overactive since he was very young. it is beginning to be a problem in daycare though. he is always running around and not staying still. i would not catagorize him as a bad child as he is very loving and caring towards me and his family. at daycare though the little monster in him comes out and he treats other children as if they are his play things. he pushes them against the wall and throws toys at them. i do not know what to do as he is perfectly ok at home. someone please provide some insight as what could be done to help him be a good boy at daycare.....
