Q. My son who is 4yrs old is so hyper-active. How do I find out if my son has ADHD or ADD? My son who is 4yrs old is so hyper-active that he climbs on everything and jumps off everything to. I cannot prevent that. I have also punished him. He cries for a split moment and then he just goes back to doing the same thing. I've tried every type of punishment that I could think of. I'm afraid of him. What can I do? How do I find out if my son has ADHD or ADD?

Example when he climbs on and jumps off the furniture ask him what he is doing. He may be pretending to be something or someone. If so ask him where "so and So" does their jumping and ask or remind him what the funiture is for. explain how to properly use it have him demonstrate.

Q. I’m a family man; my five year old daughter used to be more hyperactive. I need help. I’m a family man; my five year old daughter used to be more hyperactive and so I took her to our doctor and he diagnosed her with ADHD. My wife and I like to choose a good medication route for her. But we don’t know which is safe enough to try? I need help.

A. Dear, there are a number of treatments available for ADHD. ADHD is a condition where a child or adult can not stay focused on something, but I am curious to know a lot about the circumstances of your child. I would strongly recommend you to consult a "therapist" or coach specialized in ADHD and child development.
