Hyper 5 year old
I have a 5 year old daughter who seems to be so hyper. I don't know what to do. By the end of the day, I am so exhausted. Some of the of the main things are talking constantly, hanging on me, making loud noises, talking loudly, uses baby talk, extremely energetic...like bouncing off the couch, has a hard time keeping hands to herself like grabbing her little sister, hugging and squeezing her, or picking her up constantly, is very dramatic, etc. She's not a real defiant or desctructive child, just doesn't listen a lot. Sometimes she comes across as disrespectful. She hears me when I ask her to do things, but starts playing around and ignores me. I really worry about her at school. She just started kindergarden. I want her to make friends and be happy. I don't know what to do. She can be very caring and sweet at times, but sometimes seems out of control. I am a very health consious person and don't allow her a lot of processed and junk food. So i don't think that's it. She sleeps well at night. I spend time with my kids often doing recreational things. Sometimes I feel like a failure as a parent. I don't know if it's something i am doing. I ask her often to use inside voices, use personal space when it comes to her sister, to not grab onto me and pull me, etc. Nothing seems to be working. It's like she can't calm herself. down. I've tried asking her to count to 10 and take deep breaths. That seems to work for a minute, but doesn't last long. I'm starting to worry whether she might have ADHD especially since her father has it. Anybody have any suggestions?

The behaviors and the struggles were very apparent. He...

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
