manners-and-discipline The Hyperactive Child
Hyperactive children are difficult to deal with.  However, if you make minor changes in your and your child’s routine, it is not difficult to change your hyperactive child into a balanced and wise child. Read on to find interesting parenting tips for dealing with hyperactive child.

Dealing with hyperactive children is a challenging task for both parents and teachers. They need to be doing something or the other always. Some children are hyperactive by nature while some become because of the lack of attention that they wish to get from their parents. It has been observed that many children behave in a hyperactive manner just to draw attention of their parents and people around. Though these children are difficult to handle, it is not impossible for parents and teachers to manage them successfully.

Tips for Dealing with Hyperactive Child

Here are some tips for parents to deal with hyperactive children.

Help your Child to be Flexible

Teach your child to be disciplined and at the same time pay attention to giving him some flexibility too. Make sure he knows when you mean discipline, it is purely business. Do not make your relationship with your child centered to instructions and orders. Spend some time with your child and it is better you take him outdoors so that he has full set of enjoyment and he can also make use of his energy level.

Divert Child’s Attention in Right Direction

Impose positive thoughts and activities in your child. Help him pay attention to creativity and get engaged in activities that can divert his energy and help him stay focused and concentrate well in his activities. Remember you need to channelise the energy of your child and take it to the right direction.

Try Alternative Healing Methods

Engage your child in yoga and meditation. This helps the child calm down and concentrate on positive activities more and he will gradually get calmed down. Though even hyperactive children get calmed down eventually, but if you pay attention to engaging him in positive activities, it will help him focus in the right direction in life.

Take your child for a walk regularly. Researches have proved that walking regularly increases concentrating power in people and helps the child get focused in life too.

Teach deep breathing exercises to your child. Teach your child to take deep breaths when he feels aggressiveness and anger in him. If you are able to teach this to your child, your child will not hit or hurt any other child or himself on a matter of impulse or reaction. Deep breathing also helps provide more oxygen to the brain and this in turn calms down the child.

Engage Child in Household Chores

Fix sometime either daily or on weekends and engage your entire family in some creative activity. It can be cleaning each one’s room or cabinet or working in the garden. If the entire family is engaged in the cleaning activity, everyone will enjoy and you will have your work done and at the same time you will be able to engage your child in fruitful work as well.

Encourage Reading

Send your child to chill out and persuade him to read something interesting. Make sure you provide the reading material that is of his interest and let him choose the book that he wants to read at that moment.

Remember, when you are dealing with a hyperactive child you need to be patient and stay calm yourself first. If you spend quality time with your child, it will help you have a good and healthy relationship with your child. Concentrate on long term bonding and communicate well with him no matter if he is small. Just keep in mind that exercise helps focus well and utilize the nervous energy in the right way. Spend time in which all of you enjoy the most.
