Recently, I very often hear from the TV screen that the number of hyperactive children is increasing. Hyperactivity is bad! – say the doctors. My son is a very active boy, so I thought. And yesterday we were in the hospital for a routine examination and I had to ask the doctor (to calm myself down) if he considered my child hyperactive.
From the doctor followed several questions and several answers. The first thing that the doctor asked: Is the child interested in puzzles and does he completely collect pictures ?. My Nazar loves to collect puzzles, so I answered with a smile, knowing that the activity must be normal.
In addition to collecting puzzles, the child loves to draw, sculpt plasticine plates and koloboks, and also quietly listens to fairy tales to its logical conclusion. The doctor assured that even without special examinations – these are the first signs that my child is with normal children’s activity.
The first signs of hyperactivity
And what about hyperactive? What are they? The hyperactive child has the first signs:
– very early begins to keep his head and sit;
– starts to run at once, and not to walk;
– does not respond to prohibitions;
– in any (even unfamiliar) conditions behaves the same: screams, squeals, runs, climbs, touches all passers-by;
– very quickly speaks, swallowing whole words;
– during a conversation, extremely gesticulating, shifting from one foot to the other;
– can not sit quietly on a chair;
– hardly learns to ride a bike.
After listening to a small lecture by a doctor who explained who such hyperactive children are, I calmed down. If a child is active in moderation, this is good, but if you doubt somewhere, it is better to ask the doctor. The latter will offer to seat the child for clay, drawing, picking up puzzles.
In the course are all the tools that teach a little fidget to sit a little: seeds, cartoon, drawing, fairy tale, plasticine, viewing slides, watching cots and bugs, etc.
