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.

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.
