Your weekend favorite activities with your child perhaps are cycling, swimming, fishing, and walking around the neighborhood.

But, there is something that all parents should aware. That is hyperactivity. It is much more different than the active ones. Hyperactivity means that your child cannot control the impulsive behavior and attitude. When you take your child to the amusement park or country fair and after he gets home, he perhaps cannot sleep due to thinking of the activities in the park. He keeps telling you the activities and happiness of being in the park. Well, it cannot be considered as hyperactivity because what he shows you is a kind of enthusiasm and excitement.
One sign that you have to be aware is when he cannot finish the tasks because he cannot concentrate well. A simple thing can distract his attention and he does not want to finish the earlier tasks. He keeps moving to the other tasks continuously. Then, when he watches cartoon shows or movie, he feels uncomfortable by moving his hands and feet. Actually short attention plan cannot be the sign of hyperactivity. It sometimes represents that your child is lack of your attention. But, when it happens many times and gets worse, you need to be aware.

But, being aggressive without worrying about the physical danger needs direct guidance. For example, your child is busy going up stair and downstairs without any clear reasons and purpose. This can be the sign of hyperactivity. This can be dangerous especially for children below eight years old. Surely, you need to discuss with your couple what to do next. Consulting what your child activities to the experts is recommended. You may also discuss with your family or close friends in case they have the same experience with the active children.
