G-hyperactivity. ADHD

Dictionary of children’s emotions and states

G- Hyperactivity.

Symptoms are excessive energy and mobility of the child and is often caused by a violation of attention. The term ADHD stands for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Attention deficit means that it is difficult for a child to focus on anything .

In my opinion, the diagnosis of Hyperactivity is more logical for parents who begin to “develop” the child from the cradle. Now this is a very fashionable trend, and a parent who does not take a child to ” educators ” is considered at least strange. Fearing to miss something important in the development of the child, he is forced to SIT or move around QUIETLY and study something there – from flowers to the alphabet, including a foreign one.

Only now, a child under 6-7 years old is not at all typical to sit, and even more so calmly, or walk slowly. This is the time of active knowledge of the world, the child develops everything that surrounds him – from toilet paper and its properties to tear, crumple and sink to the ability to put on socks. All everyday skills – and there are ” developers “. Also at this age, the child absolutely needs to move, run, jump, rage in order to develop his body and learn its capabilities. Now imagine: instead of being able to help the mother hang up the clothes or learn how to dress on their own, the child is taken to ” educators “, where, of course, it can be interesting and sometimes even useful, but usually too long and does not meet the interests of the child. And instead of motor activity – a walk once a day, and cartoons to “occupy” the child with something. In kindergarten, they teach sculpting and drawing, which is great in a general sense, but again, there are too many of these classes, if only because they take place in the format of sitting at a table. And of course, “Don’t run!”, “Don’t jump!”, “Sit down!”, “Stand still!” and so on . Oh yes, the whole one (!) exercise.

Children come to school with an unsatisfied interest in learning the simplest things, and with an unsatisfied need for movement. They cannot concentrate, because, firstly, they did not run, and secondly, the alphabet is not interesting until the question “what happens if you throw a stick into the water, sit in a puddle, is it possible to carry water in a sieve and how ice melts in your pocket.”

Whether to treat a child with sedatives for hyperactivity, or let him meet his immediate needs, is up to you.
