Children, especially at an early age they have a lot of energy. Preschoolers can usually appear very active. They often run and do many activities from one thing to another. Therefore, it is normal for children to appear more active than you.

However, there are several reasons why your child tends to be more active than other children.

  1. Lots of energy or thinking. Children often have a lot of energy and tend to be hyperactive when they have events that suppress their thinking. It could be about a permanent mess or just a short-term change. Even positive changes, such as having a new baby or moving to a better environment, can stress many children out.

If you are under stress, chances are that your child is stressed too is high. Therefore, avoid showing and giving stress to children. Also, provide a consistent and predictable routine for the child to avoid stress.

  1. Emotional or Mental Health Problems. Emotional problems often look like behavioral disorders in children. Even though what they have is not a behavioral disorder. A child with an anxiety disorder may have difficulty sitting still. If you see signs that your child may have emotional or mental problems, seek professional help.
  2. Medical Conditions. There are several physical health problems that can cause a child to become overactive. An overactive thyroid, for example, can cause a variety of symptoms, including anxiety and hyperactivity. There are also other genetic problems that can cause increased activity.

For this condition, you also need to talk to your pediatrician about the symptoms. Keeping a detailed list of your child’s symptoms can help the doctor identify potential health problems that may be at the root of the problem.

  1. Lack of activities. Children should be active and energetic; Therefore, they need various activities to channel their energy. Without enough activities to use their energy, they will find it difficult to sit still. Often, many adults scold and punish their hyperactive children by taking their playing time. In fact, this tends to make their situation worse.

Provide your child with activities that require energy daily. Playing on the playground, riding a bicycle, and running give your child the opportunity to use their energy in productive activities.

  1. Lack of sleep. Although adults tend to become lethargic when they are tired, in the case of some children, they become hyperactive. Some children who are sleepy tend to appear more excited than before.

When a child does not get enough rest, their body responds by making more cortisol and adrenaline so they can stay awake. As a result, they will have more energy. Therefore, it is important that you ensure adequate rest for your child.

Although it is normal for children to have a lot of energy, being overactive can also sometimes interfere with their life. The case example is having difficulties at school. Children need to sit still long enough to study. Therefore, you also need to look back at the reasons your child tends to be too active and find solutions that match these reasons.
