Resolved Question:

my daughter is six years old and we are having problems with her behaviour. she is very loving but sometimes her behaviour can get relentless, nothing seems to go through and she is very hyperactive to the point of extreme, also she has a terrible attitude with my partner and myself, dirty looks and constant dictation towards him, I also have this myself. she can be very arractic and just completely change, its like a glaze comes over her eyes and she just does not listen. she fidgets a lot, excessive physical movements, excessive talking, interrupts conversations. unable to sit quietly and calmly most of the time, had a terrible attitude. unable to listen to me(have to ask 7-8 times maybe more). I just feel very concerned as I am starting to feel and also the people around that her behaviour is not normal.

Dr. Yogindra Vasavada :

Hello, Sorry about this issue with her. She seems to be having behavioral issue like hyperactivity or attention deficit. How is she at school - any problem narrated by teacher there?

Dr. Yogindra Vasavada :

Please get professional help when you get any remarks by teacher, or if psychological evaluation in school is available.

Dr. Yogindra Vasavada :

After such evaluation if there is need, some drug may be suggested to help her.
