As parents we keep in mind that children always have energy to waste, keep happy and full of vitality within them; but there are times when he is not simply an energetic child. Here is where a hyperactivity disorder comes into question, this disorder deals with children who develop an intense motor activity, who move continuously, without all this activity having a purpose. They go from one place to another, being able to begin some task, but they leave quickly to start another, which in turn, they leave unfinished again. This hyperactivity increases when they are in the presence of other people, especially those who do not maintain frequent relationships. On the contrary, it decreases the activity when they are alone. Hyperactivity not only speaks of the energy that children waste but the attitudes they can take as it makes them impulsive and disobedient.
Children who suffer from hyperactivity are problematic because they are restless, constantly nervous and insensitive to punishments. They have learning problems, so to abide by the norm is difficult. This is not because the child wants to be difficult to educate, but it is difficult for them to keep their attention on something and for this reason they have problems at home and problems with school performance. Something that as parents we must keep in mind is that if our children go through this situation, we must have patience, we must understand that they do not have total control of their decisions and that they have very little tolerance to frustration which can increase in them the bad behavior. Now we will explain some symptoms that your children may present at an early age to identify the disorder:
1. 0-2 years: Children have cornicos sleeping problems, after meals at nap time sleep little and often wake up startled, irritability in direct light or strong auditory stimuli.
2. 2-3 years: They present excessive motor activity, little awareness when identifying eminent hazards, which leads to the possibility of suffering accidents easier.
3. 4-5 years: Problems of social adaptation, problems at school and at home obeying and following the rules.
4. After 6 years: Problems of attention deficit in the home and school, aggressive behaviors in front of unknown people which leads to antisocial behavior.
We can not recommend any treatment since it depends on each person and the level of hyperactiveness that each child has, but at home you can perform a cognitive treatment, where tasks are presented to the children so that they begin to manage the energy distribution helping them to manage your attention deficit. Finally we want to remind our readers that if they go through a similar situation with their children, be patient, they do not have total control of their actions, they act in this way out of necessity since their organization has not developed the skills to control their actions .
