Part of what we are doing with A Change for Better is to help link you with high quality, accurate, up to date information. Today’s latest resource “Calming Tips for Hyperactive Children” comes from Mental Health Matters

Excerpt below:

“Try quick tips to calm a hyperactive child down during temper outbursts or unusually rowdy days. These calming tips are not novel to adults by any stretch. How many times have you heard “Take a deep breath and count to 10” or “Calgon, take me away.” What works for big people works for little people as well.

  • Deep breathing is one of the simplest ways to calm the body.
  • Teach your children to take deep breaths (in through the nose, out through the mouth) when they begin to feel frustrated and out of control. Parents, you do this too!
  • Draw a warm salt bath or bubble bath to wash away the hyperactive child’s stresses of the day.
  • Take your hyperactive child for a walk or send them around the block on their own if they are old enough. Not only does walking burn off excess energy, the repetitive thump, thump, thump of feet hitting pavement brings the mind back into focus.”
