Let your child know that the home is not a free-for-all. Make a schedule for play time, reading time, etc. A schedule will help add structure to a hyperactive child’s life.
Many people say you should not say "no" to children. I think it's necessary. Your child will think twice about running around and acting unruly if she knows you will not approve and will voice it to her in private and public.
Regulate your child’s sugar intake. Sweets are not a good thing in a hyperactive child’s life. Less sugar equals a more relaxed child.
Keep the noise levels down in your household. A serene atmosphere will set the right tone.
Have him learn a new skill like playing the piano or swimming. This will keep him busy as well as help burn off some of that extra energy.
Serve your child calming and healthy beverages like chamomile iced tea. This tastes great and hopefully will keep her a bit calmer.
Let your child’s teacher know that he is hyperactive (if they're not aware already). Ask the teacher to be in communication with you about what your child eats and how he interacts with other children.
For a while, try to keep the play dates to one-on-one. Hyperactive children can fight and grab sometimes. With just two kids, you can supervise your hyperactive child better.
