What should parents with a hyper child do?

ANSWER

Try to keep the atmosphere as calm as possible and leave a place on your calendar for family time. Sometimes, a child who's acting hyper needs some quiet, close time with mom or dad. Cuddle up on the couch with a blanket and read to your child to help calm things down.
