Hmm let me see what I can find. Does he act up during certain times or just random or constant?

ADHD boys are different from girls but when my daughter was 3 no one could understand her because she spoke so fast and she was always running and fidgeting, TV was no use to her because she could not focus to watch it. But as teens ADHD kids take on the tunnel vision because they have more control but it shows on their face, they will strain their face and body forcing the selfs to focus. If your worried take him to a doctor.



Someone on here told me guten and wheat free diets where good for ADD but from having a daughter with ADHD the only things you need to monitor is sugar and caffeine intake. ADHD kids lose weight quicker because of the hyperactivity, so it's important to keep them eatting



Not all meds are bad also, we have her on Methylphenidate which just calms the hyperactive down so she can focus, we tried another pill before that and she was like the walking dead but this new stuff is the best.. She loves the fact she can so things like, as she says not me, a normal girl.

I'm in no way saying meds are bad. It has helped sooo much with my nephew. I wouldn't put him on anything until he was in school.

Constant. Sleep is our biggest challenge. He's just always over excited.

I'm honestly a little surprised with this. Kids are inquisitive and hyper, and rarely have focus on much for any length of time.

People are so quick to label their kids with some disorder and medicate if they dont act like little angels and sleep on the schedule the parents want. I'm not saying you guys dont have legitimate concerns, but IMO, that website lists normal toddler behaviors. All kids behave different. Mine does half of the stuff on that list, and I'm not worried whatsoever.

I can see your point, a lot of people label without thinking. But sometimes there is something to worry about, and normally (can only speak about Britaindontnknow what America dose with dignosing) ever avenue is taken and diagnosis is only given after the age of 4 years old, then therapy sessions are given before medication is thought about. I've had so many people say to me kids will be hyper, or shes just badly behaved..that is not the case for my daughter.



She's 8 years old now and yesterday her pills ran out at 3:30 as the do every day but I had to pick up the new lot as 5. So standing in a food shop she began to fidget, cracking her knucks (first sign her pills have ran out) then she started to dance rather than walk, spinning around meaning she hand to hold my hand incase she hit someone by accident. This frustrates her because she now has little control over her own body or the facial tick, twitching, dancing and bouncing around, so she snaps at me a few times because its upsetting her and I can't take it because later on when she gets her. she will tell me she was sorry that she didn't mean it. But what does make her feel 100 times worse is the woman in the line next to is staring at her who turns around and says to me "if only parents dicplined their children propperly these days.. Of she were mine I'd beat her arse until she behaved.."



I think it's good that people are paying attention to the signs now, because a few years back people like that woman would be beating a child who couldn't stop themself. Labelling isn't right but looking out for the signs and helping a child before its too late and the damage is done is.

Then stop giving him games to play.

THANK YOU.



A three yr old is not out of control because he likes video games. The problem is that a 3 yr old is being allowed to play video games. Focus more on human interaction and teaching good social skills, and not accepting bad behavior.



Don't immediately jump to labeling him.

Its not like I was giving them to him all the time and I have taken them away. I haven't "labeled" my kid. I'm concerned at some of the behaviors I'm seeing and was hoping to get some insight from parents whose kids really do have it to see if they sounded similar and what I can do to help my son now which I found. We don't accept bad behavior from him. We do time outs and spankings. We have tried stupid sticker charts and the whole if your good you get a surprise thing. Nothing gets better no matter how constant we are.

And I don't think he is out of control because he likes video games. I have listed several other things as well. Its not just me that notices how he acts. The people who are around him see it as well.

Welcome to being a parent. Not everything you try will work and you're going to get frustrated. But slapping a label on him at THREE is not going to do anything. Read books, try different things, and don't stop trying until something works.
