A hyperactive child has a neurological status from birth. Most likely, the birth was of a pathological nature, for example, premature or rapid. In the future, the child develops neurological symptoms such as pulsation of the fontanelle, prolonged non-tightening of the cranial sutures, hypertonicity, constant regurgitation after feeding, standing on tiptoe, etc. But the plasticity of the brain structures, in childhood, is able to compensate for the missing connections and the child is removed from the register of the neuropathologist, and the parents are left with his behavioral characteristics. Hyperactivity is more often characteristic of children with a choleric type of temperament, which… Read More
The child was diagnosed with ADHD, hyperactivity, autism, mental retardation
Often, for many parents, a diagnosis in the direction of his child sounds like a sentence and there are fewer reasons for joy. Let’s try to figure out how to relate to this: 1. Diagnoses are made by doctors, for example: neurologists, psychiatrists and neuropathologists and often make them on the first day of the child’s examination, I focus on the child’s behavior in the examination situation. That is why the diagnosis is often not true, because the child is looked at in a narrow situation, where he does not feel free and has not even adapted to the person and the… Read More

Childhood hyperactivity is a collection of symptoms associated with excessive mental and motor activity. This is a complex behavior disorder, manifested in inappropriate excessive motor activity, impaired concentration, inability to organize, purposeful activity.

Since the 80s of the twentieth century,… Read More
Child’s hyperactivity – diagnosis or spoiledness?
All parents have different assessments of the normal development of their children. For some, it is normal for a child to be quiet and calm, for others, a healthy child should run, jump and talk, and when he is quiet and calm, it means he is ill. There is no single criterion in this matter. First of all, it is worth remembering the temperament. A child is born with a certain temperament and the development of their baby depends on how parents react to what is laid down by nature. There are several classifications by temperament. 1.Sanguine, choleric, phlegmatic, melancholic. 2. Sanguine, choleric… Read More
In the West, hyperactivity in children is treated with amphetamine analogues. Why?
In the treatment of children with ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) in the West, the drug “Ritalin” is actively used. In its pharmacological action and composition, it resembles amphetamine. This is a kind of doping that raises mood, increases self-confidence, attention, and, surprisingly, invigorates. Although, it would seem, why should a hyperactive child be even more cheerful, because it is already difficult for him to sit still. But this is where the scientific paradox lies, which I will discuss below! Ritalin helps patients in 75% of cases and in a relatively short period of time. But in Russia, this drug is prohibited, because equates to… Read More
