Do any of you have a child that cannot stand silence? She wants something running all the time, doesn't matter if she is even listening to it, or watching it. The whole time she is having her noise, she is rolling, running, jumping, and non stop talking. She is a child of an alcoholic/drug addicted mom, who made some effort to stay clean. She could be a lot worse. She isn't quite 5 years old but every day she seems to be getting more unable to control herself. She is a sweet loving child most of the time, but can go off like sky rockets at the drop of a hat. Today her teacher sends home a note telling me how badly she behaved and wants to know what is going on. I have no idea. When she was a baby a neurologist told me her problems would start showing up more at school age. Maybe that's what is happening. Nothing has changed at home. During the holidays I noticed her behaviour was getting worse. I just thought it was all the excitement plus she and I had been sick for several days. I just don't know what to think. I try to talk to her about why she acts out but she will usually just start crying and say "I don't know Mommy" and collasp on me. She hasn't been spoiled, although that is what most people have thought her whole life. I am fairly strict, and try to keep her life as structured as I can. She hates not knowing what to expect. She hates surprises of all kinds. She just ran in, hugged and kissed me good night. She asked me to tell her what all she did wrong at school today and promised she wouldn't do them tomorrow. She is such a loving child and I'm so confused by her sometimes. Anyone else have a child that acts like this?
