How will I manage my hyper active toddler?
I have got a problem-child at home who can’t seem to sit still or listen mindfully. I hear complaints from the teachers of my child’s recklessness and lack of care both inside and outside the classroom. He is always blessed with abundant energy, because of which he is always active.

@debangshu Hyperactivity in children is characterized by reckless behaviour and too much activity that stems from receiving a lack of sufficient attention. Such kids are prone to never get tired, can’t focus or have short attention spans in general. Hyperactivity in children results in poor academic performance, lack of socialization and in severe cases even complete withdrawal from participating in group activities, which in turn can lead to depression, frustration, and poor self-esteem. Walking rejuvenates both mind and body and also enhances their focus. This would not only loosen his/her mind but also help him enjoy the scenery as he/she walks. Changing your child’s behaviour in a day or two is next to impossible. You can tell your child to sit still for 5 minutes and then gradually increase the time. Incentivizing them for this can help increase their interest in the activity.
